Moneyball Author Michael Lewis to Keynote the Customer Success Industry’s Largest Event
Redwood City, CA – Jan. 20, 2015 –
Gainsight, the Customer Success company, today announced the speaker lineup for the upcoming Pulse Conference 2015, the largest and best-attended event for the Customer Success industry. Announced last fall, Gainsight’s third annual Pulse conference is slated to attract over 2000 attendees from leading subscription businesses to share best practices for growing recurring revenue through Customer Success. Leading the speaker lineup is Michael Lewis, best-selling author of Moneyball, The Big Short, and Liar’s Poker. Lewis brings a historical perspective on how companies can leverage data and analytics to create a winning advantage in driving business outcomes. Within the Moneyball narrative, the outcomes translate into hits and wins. For subscription businesses, the outcomes represent increased renewals, better customer advocacy, and exponential growth in recurring revenue. Past keynotes have included authors Geoffrey Moore and Malcolm Gladwell.
Lewis will be joined at Pulse by over 100 speakers from leading recurring revenue businesses. Today, Gainsight announces more than twenty speakers, including:
- Dan Levin, Chief Operating Officer at Box
- Keith Krach, Chief Executive Officer at DocuSign
- Tien Tzuo, Chief Executive Officer at Zuora
- Parker Conrad, Chief Executive Officer at Zenefits
- Eric Kelleher, Head of Global Customer Success at LinkedIn
