Matt Schmitz/ January 19, 2018

I received an email late yesterday afternoon – to my surprise I was invited to join the Cisco Champions program for 2018! I applied back in November, but I never would have thought I would actually get selected.

I’m very excited to join the wonderful group of existing Cisco Champions, a few of which who I’ve bugged on Twitter already. I’ve heard a lot of great things about the program, but since it’s my first year I’m interested to experience it for myself. Overall I’m happy for the opportunity and I’m looking forward to what it brings!

Thanks for being here – It’s going to be an exciting 2018!
