This simply isn’t enough to grow your customer relationships to their full potential value. You need a customer success program to grow quickly and to serve many through scale. This is where the right people, processes and technology come into play. Join Emilia D’Anzica, a customer success and engagement strategist, as she walks you through customer success essentials to consider as you grow your company and customer success team. During this webinar, you will learn core pillars of customer success by: Putting yourself in your customer’s shoes. Shifting your strategy to a Growth mindset. Building a scalable customer success framework. You'll walk away with actionable steps for you and your team to leverage immediately. When: November 14th at 11AM PT (2PM ET, 7PM GMT)
