The stand-alone conference is one way to engage learners outside of the classroom and gather like-minded people for networking and knowledge sharing. This is a the more 'traditional' or 'standard' type of event, where a company holds sessions on their topic of choice and invites subject experts to give talks and seminars on them. Think HBaseCon from Cloudera, MuleSoft Connect from MuleSoft, and Couchbase Connect from Couchbase.

The great thing about following a conference backchannel on Twitter is that you get to experience people's thoughts, emotions, photos, and real-time reactions to an event. In this brief post, we have curated the backchannel from the Business of Customer Education Conference, so that you can experience what people were saying during the event. And if you combine that with reading the recap blog we posted yesterday, I believe you will have a pretty good idea what occurred at the conference. So, if you attended, it may bring back memories and help reinforce what you learned. If you did not attend, reviewing the backchannel will give you a taste of what people learned.

On Thursday, October 29, I had the great opportunity to participate in Pulse Europe Conference in London. Although Pulse Customer Success conference has been running in the San Francisco Bay Area for the past four years and has grown enormously, Gainsight just hosted its first customer success conference in Europe, of which ServiceRocket was a proud Gold Sponsor. Gainsight expected big things, planned a first conference for big things, and the turnout was unbelievable.
There were a few hundred people from all over Europe and even some friends from across the pond in the United States who attended. The reason for the conference's success? Because Gainsight focused every aspect of the conference on helping participants get value out of attending.
