Cisco Champion program is now accepting applications



This is the sign you have been waiting for. It's the year YOU apply to become a Cisco Champion and become a member of an exclusive group of technologists.  

As a Cisco Champion, you’ll:

  • Get early insights into new Cisco products and solutions 
  • Receive access to Cisco’s engineering rock stars
  • Expand your own network of technology enthusiasts (Last year, we had Champions from 60+ countries covering all architectures across the Cisco ecosystem.)
  • Hone your blogging and podcasting skills through Cisco Champion Radio and Creators Club 
  • Provide feedback on Cisco products and solutions (good, bad, anything else) through beta testing, message testing, focus groups, and our Webex Teams spaces
  • Receive “white glove” treatment at Cisco Live with special keynote seating, whisper suite access, behind the scenes tours, etc. - whenever we return to in-person
Kind of a big deal

Just a side note; I did apply for this program several years ago (and was accepted), but the legal agreement you have to sign is draconian.  They wouldn't change it so I didn't sign.


For example, you weren't allowed to mention any competing product to Cisco on any social platforms.

Hmm, yeah, your example seems a bit strict. I would love to send you the current agreement for you to review if you have an interest. Just ping me (
