Did you know that Pulse 2023 is our 10th year of Pulse? 🤯 Not only has Pulse continued to be part of our lives over many years now, it’s created a truckload of memories to hold onto forever! From meeting and learning from different people, to puppy adoptions, to a Taylor Swift impersonator (or maybe not? 😉), Vanilla Ice taking the stage, music parodies and so much more! So, we put together this trip down memory lane so we all can step into this year’s Pulse even more fired up, and closer together! 🤝🏽 I have to admit, I was really looking forward to the shoe count of @nick_mehta 😉 I’m sure you’ve all had some really lovely memories from Pulse too!Would love to hear them from you! 👇 Don’t forget to have a wonderful time at Pulse 2023! ♥️

All the information is on our website HERE, and we will be announcing our agendas soon. I can assure you - we have some awesome content & Pulse fun in the works!Don’t hesitate - these are much smaller more intimate events, and tickets are on a first come first serve basis.

Dear Community,I am thrilled to announce that I will speak about SAP Signavio’s Digital Customer Journey and to present how we have built a team of 12 Virtual CS professionals focussing on our tech touch customer base at SAP Signavio. On top of that I will show you our approach to reduce time-to-value with on-demand access to self-serve resources, compelling content, and more. About me:I am leading the Virtual Customer Success team at SAP Signavio. We have built our team from one Virtual CS professional to 12 globally within 2 years, which was quite a ride, but definitely worth it.I am looking forward to connecting 🙂
Looking forward to discussing one of my favourite topics: why and how CS Operations & Enablement working effectively together is the key to a successful Gainsight environment. Technology is only as good as the enablement behind it. As Gainsight Admins & CS Ops professionals, we need to think like Product Managers. Before building something as simple as a report or a dashboard, let alone editing the 360 views of our customers, we need to ask ourselves: how are my end users going to gain value out of this? Not only that, but how easily will they gain that value?In our world, we often think about things like story points or level of effort, but we need to add two more factors into this: level of impact and ease of adoption.Then, we work backwards from that enablement. In this session, we’ll dive into the actionable tactics you can bring back to your development process to prioritize the user experience and a strong partnership with CS enablement.About Me: by day, I’m the Senior Ma

I'm thrilled to be speaking at Pulse for the first time, along with my colleague @JKucek, on driving engagement with Stakeholder Alignment! This topic is near and dear to my heart as I believe it is a key workflow that takes CS organizations from reactive to proactive.As a CSM, navigating political complexity and multiple stakeholders is par for the course. But as your customers change priorities and shift strategies (especially in today's economic climate), maintaining alignment with multiple executives and decision makers becomes paramount. In this session, you'll learn how to systemize your executive sponsorship approach, which ultimately impacts GRR.Be sure to mark your schedules and join us on Wednesday, May 17th at 2pm to learn the Why, What, Who, When and How of Stakeholder Alignment.This is the first time Gainsight has dedicated an entire track to CSMs and I couldn't be more excited to be a part of it. Looking forward to seeing everyone soon!
Thanks to the foresight and awareness of my colleague Margo Martin who leads the Customer Success team at Deltek and Deltek’s implementation of Gainsight PX I have gotten a front row seat to understanding the benefits of the Customer Success and Product Management teams working together closely. We have discovered that in a strong product and customer focused organization, the Customer Success and Product Management teams have a huge opportunity to create significant value by having a strong, synergistic relationship to help ensure customer loyalty and retention. As a result, I’ll be sharing the stage at Pulse with Margo Martin in our session titled Harnessing the Power of Customer Success and Product Management Working Together. In this session, you can hear about how Deltek's implementation of the Gainsight suite of tools has prompted and highlighted the importance of nurturing this relationship and why, how and what benefits we are seeing by having Customer Success and Product Mana

Absolutely THRILLED to be speaking at Pulse for the very first time 😅I’m talking about the importance of the often much neglected cadence call. This is all about bringing your A game every single day as you work with customers (not just on those Business Reviews, not just just when you need to combat a risk, and certainly not just right before renewal!) and making a consistent habit of building structure and value into your calls. You will walk away from this session with some practical tips and habits that you can start taking action on right away to position yourself as a strategic advisor and assure you earn that partner, not vendor designation with your customers. I cannot wait to see you all there in May! 🔥Meet the Speaker!
Hello! Going to be my first time speaking at Pulse and its a little nerve racking 😛, I heard once that feeling nervous and excited are similar and if that’s the case I am VERY EXCITED!!Thankfully I’m passionate about digitalization and I’ve got our CCO Nikki Bishop by my side to share the stage with. We experience digitalization constantly; whether at self-checkout in the grocery store or ordering your niece’s birthday present from amazon. The reality is, the world is moving to digital - and in the world of customer success where scaling is top of mind, how do we incorporate a digital touch into our workflows while continuing to drive customer value and satisfaction? Over the last year, Gainsight has enabled Seeq to move forward in the digitalization of our customer journey to drive scalability, consistency, and ROI. Join this session to hear our methodology, learnings, and next steps as we continue to improve this process for our customers.Seeq is globalization analytics at an ente
Hey y’all! This will be my first in-person Pulse, but I am SO-FREAKING-PUMPED™ to be speaking about a topic I’m particularly passionate about: Advocacy 💜. Advocacy is one of the most underrated metrics in CS, but one of the most important for helping your company build its presence and meet its goals. With the proper approach, advocacy not only celebrates your customers, but also drives NRR and New Sales. Be sure to mark your schedules and join me to learn:Key indicators your Adopter is ready to be an Advocate What I consider an “Advocacy Event” How we built partnerships throughout the organization to rally around Advocacy How we built every process into Gainsight for collaboration and measurement, at scaleTLDR: Advocacy is a magic relationship strengthener and brand builder - and when done well, it leads your customers to excel in their own career paths (making you the hero and your company the beneficary). Outside of NRR, it’s one of the key metrics my department tracks on a weekly
Hello! So excited to be attending my first live Pulse event AND making my speaker debut 🤓. This session is close to my CSM heart. It is essential that CSMs are able to showcase value to our customers throughout the customer journey that was promised during the sales cycle. In this session, I will be discussing the importance of identifying customer objectives/metrics to measure value and ultimately showcase ROI. What is a value realization program? CSM wins/highlights adopting value framework program How do we guide customers from the Outcome Hypothesis to a Verified Outcome? After this session, you will learn how to develop an Outcomes Hypothesis, drive and assess progress, and verify your customer’s desired outcomes. Can’t wait to see you there!

Hey Everyone! I cannot wait to get to SF for Pulse and I am especially excited to be participating in this CSM-led track! 🚀Often times when we discuss Customer Experience (CX) and Outcomes (CO) here at Gainsight, we’re speaking about measuring CO with our DEAR framework and the correlations with Net Revenue Retention📈We might also talk about measuring CX with NPS or ‘closing the loop.’ All very important- but we’re only scratching the surface, missing out on an important discussion around how inspiring orienting our work around CO and CX can be! 🤩For my session, I wanted to dig into how we can use the CX + CO framework to add context and purpose to the entire breadth of work that a CSM does (What’s-in-it-for-CSM, so to speak). In my track, we’ll coverHow gathering outcomes at all levels of the business and numerous points in the customer journey makes for easier renewals and drives expansion 📊 Why prioritizing a Human-First approach is crucial for excellent CX 🌞 How the Gainsigh

Data maturity, Data structure, Data analytics… it’s all we hear and talk about lately.Why is it so important and why has data become such a struggle?Data is the new gold. We have to ensure we have insightful and powerful data to help our organization achieve their goals. But how does it all start. It almost feels like the right place to start is to look at our current data. Well, I am here to tell you, it starts even earlier than that.Think about your data prior it ever being created. Think about actionable objectives, you can do now to help curate data gold. As I mention in my session at Gainsight Pulse 2022, there are 3 main strategies I live and breath by. 1. THINK WIN-WIN-WIN SolutionsThis strategy is about ensuring everyone involved is winning. Think about your CSM needs, stakeholder needs and admin needs. Ask yourself key questions to help you understand how each player wins.Stakeholder: Can the business measure positive negative impacts to the customer through the data? Have you

Join @easton_taylor, VP of CS, and me, Director, CS Ops, at Gainsight on Thursday at 10am in Room 2022.
