For many of us, 2020 will be known as the year business conferences moved from convention halls to online. The reality is that virtual events will be the norm going forward, at least in the short term. For those of us who love the in-person conference experience, this adjustment is tough.
There is, however, a silver lining. Virtual events present uniquely flexible opportunities for Customer Success professionals to brush up on skills and to learn from peers, albeit from the safety of being behind a webcam. With interactive online formats and many events offering recordings on-demand, it’s never been easier to squeeze in professional development opportunities during these virtual conferences
Don’t let QBRs and Zoom meetings get in the way of your career development. Check our list of five upcoming Virtual Conferences taking place in the remainder of 2020 that should be on your radar.
1) Out of the Box: ABX Strategies for Marketing, Sales, and CX
In just the last few months, those of us in the world of CS have seen a fundamental shift in how we build and maintain customer relationships. Out of The Box, hosted by Sendoso, the leading sending platform, tackles this topic head-on with a full day of virtual content.
The event will dive into ways to think out of the box and evolve your account-based approach to customer relationships. It’s an opportunity to join a community of experts and ABX trailblazers as they share best practices and their innovative solutions to forge meaningful relationships.
ChurnZero’s very own Bri Adams, Customer Success Team Lead, will be presenting at the event. She’ll share how CS teams can leverage usage data for gifting in her session “Strategic Gifting for Success: A CSM’s Guide to Gifting”.
