The Results Are In: BIG RYG 2020 Polls


Spread the love

In honor of Election Day, we decided to share some poll results of our own. Just last month we hosted our first ever virtual conference – BIG RYG 2020. Throughout the conference we conducted a series of audience poll questions, that related to the session topics.

We received poll responses from over 800 Customer Success professionals who also attended the conference.

As 2020 has shown us, we can’t predict everything that will change in the coming years, but we can take a look at what’s happening today and use it to better understand the change that is ahead of us. 

As you are planning for the future be sure to seek out advice and lessons learned from others in the industry, and we think the thought leadership sessions from BIG RYG are a great place to start.
