Very little published material exists on how Customer Success Leaders are justifying the cost of their CS function. Is this because CS is still finding its correct position in the organization? Is it because some CS functions don't do the "commercials" and so causality to financial contribution is not easily measured?
We have put together a morning event on the 1st November for CS Leaders to focus on the topic of Measuring and Proving the Internal Value of Customer Success.
We will have a couple of talks from both local and international Customer Success experts such as Dan Steinman from Gainsight. The event should also serve as an excellent networking forum for CS Leaders.
This event is targeted at senior and aspiring Customer Success Leaders, Senior Sales Engineers and Customer Retention experts.
Number are limited to 30 to facilitate strong audience interaction and networking.
We have kept the cost as low as possible to encourage participation - all proceeds (as per the last event) will go towards the next event
We hope you can make it.
