Event description



Welcome to KLP Summit, by the Kiwi Landing Pad. We want to bring our community together for three days in June in Auckland. KLP Summit is the evolved Sales and Marketing Jams, in a multi event, multi day format, which is better suited to people at all stages, especially startups with teams who want to build their capability.

We will be focusing on helping New Zealand startups grow the functions in their business spread across Sales, Marketing, Product Management and Customer Success, we are targeting companies from MVP/MSP through to IPO.

The format has evolved a lot! The summit is now spread across 1 x jam on all topics, 5 workshops, and a day of one-one sessions.

High Level Format:

Day One

  1. Morning - 'Sales and Marketing' Jam - 8:30am - 1pm
  2. Afternoon - Six Different Workshops - 2pm-4:30pm
  3. Evening - Community Gathering & KLP Celebration

Day Two

  1. One-One sessions with speakers for expansion focused founders/CEOs
  2. Founder/CEO Lunch

Why Auckland?

We decided to try having our Summit in one location. With the success of our webinar series, and the community expanding to many places around the world, we realise that there is a lot of value in proximity. We want our community to meet each other, and see the face behind the photo and the name. A lot of people talk regularly, often weekly online and over email, but often don't get a chance to meet face to face.

We also have corporate and government partners that we want to meet our community and vise-versa, that's why we are investing in bringing everyone together for KLP Summit this June.

Sales Lies. Why what you’ve been told might not be true on the path from $0-$20M
We’ve all heard the advice and read the books.. but why, if there is such a clear path to building a big sales engine, does it feel like we are constantly re-inventing the wheel? In this workshop we will be discussing some of the institutional wisdom around building teams, when to hire a VP of sales, how to break into the US or other markets and what do do when plan A fails.


Event Title: Workshop Two - Customer Success
Speaker/Host: Emilie Davis, Head of Customer Success @ Periscope Data,

Location: BNZ Partners Centre, Board Room, Level 8, 80 Queen Street.
Building your CS organization from the ground up.
According to one McKinsey study, the SaaS vendors with top-quartile revenues achieved their strong showing by investing more in customer-success (CS) initiatives” that increase net revenue retention. It’s likely why another report from LinkedIn Data revealed CS as one of the top 10 fastest growing professions, at 736% growth since 2015.
 Yet while the need for customer success in a SaaS business is becoming clearer and clearer, the strategy and means for execution remains relatively elusive.

In this session, we’ll look at the value CS brings, foundational blocks for building a world-class team, and considerations for scaling efficiently. If you’re a CEO looking to hire your first CS leader/professional, you’ll not want to miss this.

Marketing & Sales Operations (revops): it’s the glue between marketing and sales

The two important ‘R’s for any CEO is revenue and retention.

In order to maintain scalable growth and have consistency across the entire customer lifecycle there needs to be a lynchpin* that will bring together marketing, sales and customer success.

Roll in, revenue operations. Often overlooked as just a trending name for sales operations, this function works across the entire buyer journey. Bringing together tools, platforms and process to move quickly, surfacing insights and data that will achieve core KPIs and overall maintaining consistency across the customer journey.

We will dive deep into the role of revenue operations across marketing, sales and customer success. Hear from ex- Vend Director of Marketing Operations, Cath Carlsen and VP Sales Operations
