Hi All, Hope you all are doing well!

Most of you already know me, but I want to introduce myself and welcome new joinees to the community! I also want to encourage new users to introduce themselves here, so we can know each other better and communicate quickly.

I‘m Sai Ram and I’m the Community Manager at Gainsight, based in Hyderabad, India. I’ve worked here in a few different departments, and I’m knowledgeable with all areas of the products. I consider myself an expert on C360, Relationships, Scorecards, Cockpit and Timeline.

I’m responsible for managing Community communications and I make sure information flows fast between customers and the product team. I also monitor popular ideas from the community and help bring them to the attention of our product team. I’m also responsible for running periodic community contests.

I also spend a lot of time after work with my children, friends and on physical fitness. 

 

Please tell us a bit about yourself! Here’s a few questions for your consideration:

What’s your current role and where are you based?

What are you hoping to learn from the community?

What do you like to do for fun?

Oh and btw,  Complete your profile :)

Thanks for starting the introductions, Sai! We’re seeing lots of new members joining during the Pulse Everywhere event, and we’re excited to welcome everyone to participate in the Community. 

I’m Lila, and I work with the Gainsight product documentation team, Sai and the community, as well as I support various product release enablement efforts. When I’m not working, you can often find me in the garden, walking/hiking around the Portland, Oregon area, or baking and sharing sweets with friends! 

Here’s my homemade backyard brunch last weekend: :wink:

 

Hey, Customer Success friends...how ya doing? Looking forward to learning and sharing with all of you here.

My most recent role was as the Vice President of Customer Success for ISI Telemanagement in Chicago where I drove increased retention, improved customer loyalty and a growing expansion revenue generation team. The company went through a significant downsizing earlier this month, so I’m currently looking for my next challenge in the Customer Success world.

I’m hoping to learn about early-stage SaaS companies (Series-B/Series-C funded companies) that have great products and a big mission statement. I’m also hoping to share some of my experience and knowledge with those in the community.

For fun, I like to run, photograph nature/landscapes and travel.

Hi all, nice to virtually meet you (which is all we ever seem to do these days!) 

 

I’m Head of CX for CAE Technology Services, a VAR headquartered in the UK (but offices in multiple countries). We’re a relatively new CX practice and have subscribed to Gainsight to help us with the day-to-day management of our customers. Looking forward to getting this embedded into our everyday use and learning lots of hints and tips from the community (and giving back where we can of course).

 

As for fun, I’m lucky enough to live on the north east coast adjacent to the North Yorkshire Moors national park so get lots of walks with the family.

Hi all! I’m coming up on my 1 year of being a Gainsight admin and I’ve really enjoyed leveraging this Community to help me level up my skills. I hope to become officially Gainsight Admin Certified with my Level 3 certification by the end of the year!

 

I’m currently a Gainsight Adoption Manager in Denver (working remotely). It’s a really fun and unique role, where not only do I serve as a Gainsight administrator for our CS NXT instance, but I also am responsible for all enablement and adoption of the platform from our users. 

 

I love leveraging this community to source best practices. Gainsight is a powerful tool, but if you don’t know how to configure it, it can be daunting. This community helps me take my knowledge of common CS processes and builds them into the system.

 

Outside of work, you can find me traveling (both domestically and internationally) or hiking!

Chuffed to see you pop in and say hello @sarahmiracle! We are specially thankful for your work with Gainsight and for your community contributions. Congrats on being a part of the Product Council with us.

And hey, the rich editor has an image insert feature for some of your travel pics? 😎

Hi, everyone!  Excited to be part of the GS Community!


I currently work as a CSM and my organization is in the implementation-phase for our Gainsight rollout.  I’m excited to leverage the Community to crowd-source best practices as we start using GS and welcome any feedback you all have!

 

When I’m not working, I’m usually making t-shirts or other crafts for friends and family.  My fiancé and I are also huge theme park fans and travel to Disney World as often as possible.  Need a DW travel planner?  Let me know!  ;)

Hey Everyone, (just a quick hi from me)

I am Tiffany Taylor and I head up our Customer Education & Success Team at Handshake. 

We are currently in the middle of implementing Gainsight and our team is ridiculously excited about what the full use of this tool could mean for us (and our partners/customers). 

It is never easy implementing a new tool (the people here know that all too well), however I am enjoying learning alongside my team as it is also giving us something new to bond over.

Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening all,

Thanks @andutta for the welcome.

I am the Head of Community at inSided. 🚀 

I come from 10 years of customer service experience, moving through Support > Knowledge Management > Customer Success.
A mechanical engineer by education, I wanted to design formula 1 cars. I got to live out that dream through customers in my support role as I worked with the likes of Toyota and Renault F1🏎️.

Originally from Cornwall, England, I've lived the last 10 years in New York 🌃 and now reside in Rome, Italy 🇮🇹.

I like to play sports and have twice done the New York marathon. I most like to play tennis and volleyball, BUT with three kids under 6 exercise time is limited.😅

For the last 3 years I have worked in Customer Success, focussing on self service, Knowledge Management and community based customers. I am Knowledge Centered Service certified and very much a fan in working out loud.

I look forward to help you all be successful in leading your own communities! 🏆

You can also find me on LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/alistairfield/

I want to hear from you, so do not hesitate to reach out to me whenever you feel like it 😁

@Alistair FIeld, I’m always amazed to hear about your diverse experiences, a new one everytime I interact with you; we are thrilled to have you onboard with us. 😎 

[Additional +5 points for strategic use of emojis 🎉 ] lol

Gainsight Admins, and CSMs on this community very much build out the CS function influencing and serving other dept.s to make CS happen everyday at their co.s, so we’d definitely need your advice on our missions as we do this together.
