Monica Lluis
Community Manager

Hearty Congratulations! After pausing the Events Top Contributor program for few years, we are happy to launch the 2021 class. 

We're thrilled to announce the 2021 Cisco Community Events Top Contributors Winners. This year's class has 23 community members that hosted multiple events in the community.


The Events Top Contributors program recognizes the top external individual contributors in Cisco Community that delivered multiple high-quality events in the community in addition of actively participating in the community.

Events Top Contributors are recognized by their peers for their expertise, tireless contributions, and their abundant participation that is vital to the success of the community. With this program, Cisco formally recognizes the positive, valuable influence that our top individual members exert on the communities overall. 

Congratulations to each one of this year's Events Top Contributors recipients! We are grateful for your dedication and passion in sharing your knowledge, expertise and talent! It is your incredible contributions that continue to enrich the community!
