Thanks for your posts @Alain_Bensimon and we hope you'll continue to find value from participating in our community!


Everybody Wins

This award allows us to highlight the actions of a member or members whose recent contributions created a win for everyone involved.


This month, we’re featuring @UCcert@cmr, and @ChrisLaird for this award. These three brave members joined @merakisimon and me for last month's Meraki Unboxed podcast episode to discuss (and lament over) the year of 2020, specifically in IT. They shared their own experiences navigating remote work and we reminisced over some highlights from the community.













Thanks for taking the time to chat with us, it was such a pleasure 😊
