Cisco Meraki Masters

I recently had the pleasure of attending the invite only "Meraki Masters" training which is held at Cisco Meraki's San Francisco head quarters.

 

It consists of 4 days of training, involving labs, sessions with managers of many areas and the exec team, and developing the delivering of your Dashboard demo skills.

 

The environment is just amazing at HQ.  Everyone is so upbeat, and the office environment is amazing.  And it was great being able to voice my thoughts (which I promise you, I took every opportunity to do so).  I also expressed many of the recurring themes that have come up in the forums over the last 6 months - so I hope I gave a voice to everyone that would not normally have one.

 

I can tell you that a lot of the Meraki team do read the community forums, even if they don't actively participate or respond.  So don't be afraid to bring up issues or things you want like to see changed (even if it is not an "official" channel).

@MerakiDave


Im based in Europe, Amsterdam, The Netherlands to be precise. Are you guys planning to host a Meraki Masters course in this area in the near future?

 

I'd love to attend if so.

Meraki Masters is only done in San Francisco.

@Adriano yes, @PhilipDAth is correct, the Meraki Masters program is only currently offered on site at Meraki HQ in San Francisco, since it involves a lot of hands-on lab gear, as well as 1:1 time with every Meraki PM team for the various products, and also 1:1 time with Meraki executives.
