    On April 1, John Chambers, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of CISCO, spoke to over 100 AmCham executives and invited guests about the Internet and the future of productivity for companies and countries.

    The network, coupled with widespread broadband Internet access, has created a platform that eliminates time and distance as obstacles to collaboration.  Our ability to harness both technical and human networks to help us collaborate—across geographical regions, cultures, and job roles—will unleash a new wave of productivity, potentially rivaling what we experienced in the first phase of the Internet.  The countries, organizations, and individuals that grasp the power of collaboration will emerge as tomorrow’s leaders.  Mr. Chambers shared these insights and more in a lively, inter-active discussion, borrowing from his own experience leading Cisco to pioneer the use of collaboration and Web 2.0 technology to transform its business.
