Witnessing the origins
Gainsight was birthed as a Community and the Pulse Community is how it all began led by none other than coach Mr. Ned Sasso himself.
You can check the #PulseEU22 tag to experience the conference through the eyes of attendees and speakers.
On this post I’d like to give you a personal take of this spectacular London event as a Community builder who’s feeling this immense sense of satiety witnessing the coming together of the Community, on the ground, as it is online.
So here are my top 10 moments from Nov 9, and 10.
1. The Venue
There are conference venues, and then there is London’s historic Tobacco Dock for a venue.
2. All About Pulse is as IRL as it gets
I found myself seated right next to one of our first respondents to the ‘All About Pulse call to session intros’,
3. Long time collaborators meet
Very special moments like these when
Don’t worry if you missed his session, engage here
4. The bar’s now set sky-high
At Gainsight, we have meetups and usergroups, Pulse feels like one mega usergroup, but Salesforce Trailblazers has 1200+, self organizing Usergroups!!!…. Whaaaao 😮

5. PX leader Sailaja on the main stage
Heroes who put their everything behind strategy and delivery of some of the amazing features we have come to expect out of Gainsight PX often go unnoticed, but I’m glad not this time.
6. Pulse Academy Live
Veteran Gainsight trainer
If you were there in the workshop, join this PAL 2000 group on the Community to learn together.
7. The Pulse Community is pure 💖
If there was a North star metric to our Community, something that is the predominant ethos we have been able to create together, it is this sense of respect and un-selfish knowledge sharing.
I couldn't have been more proud reading the same sentiment ring across all my interactions with attendees, and these hand-written notes on the message board.
8. Meeting the GameChanger Community OG 👸🏽
Yes I met
Today we know her to be the in-charge of Gainsight’s powerful Training & certification program but if you’ve been associated with Gainsight long enough, you know that the categories, the registration process, the points system, and everything that we are building upon right now exist, thanks to this lady.
Here’s a little reference for context
9. The Super platform team
The cool cats behind the technology who help me deliver some of the key upgrades we have come to enjoy. To name a few:
10. We came, We saw, We presented
Having witnessed all these magic Community-moments coming to life during the conference,
Presenting at Pulse is exciting, even more so when it also marks the start of our journey to imagine a cohesive Community experience for all Gainsight products towards our ‘Platform’ direction for 2023.
