One of the things I really value in both my work and personal life is creativity. I always challenge myself and my team to do things differently, in a better way that will inspire others. I’m lucky at Cisco to be surrounded by innovative people and technologies that help us bring creative ideas to life each day. Like many companies today, we know that if we do not transform ourselves – sometimes in the most disruptive ways – we will not be able to maintain customer loyalty or our competitive edge. Innovations like cloud, mobile, and video – and connecting the dots between them – provide completely new ways to conduct business, empower employees, and engage with customers.
