📝 Blog

Did you know that in 2003, the British Cycling team had not won a single Tour de France race? But in 10 short years, head coach Sir Dave Brailsford was able to turn things around and they won 6 of 7 races?

So what does that have to do with Customer Success?

The same strategy used to build a winning cycling team can be utilized to build a winning customer success team.

Based on incremental changes, we see that over time, these small adaptations can result in a large impact.

@Anita Toth walks through the process of helping your team move into the retention game in a big way.

2023 Demopalooza Demo Videos

Well, our first ever GGR Demopalooza is in the books, and man, what a ride! We were able to bring together 20 vendors from a variety of tech categories into a 4-day binge watch party.

Missed out or wish you could have had someone else on the call to see a particular vendor?

Great! We have worked with our vendors, and we have the demos broken into separate recordings to make it easy for you to share or watch*.

Community Updates

🔎 Search

Your ability to find content has become easier than ever. Using the search feature, type in what you are looking for and then you can drill down with the new options Higher Logic Vanilla has added.

Focus in on content type (Discussions, Articles, Events, etc) or by author, or even a date range to eliminate older and less relevant posts.

*BEST PRACTICE - do a quick search before starting a new conversation to prevent silo'd conversations

🗒️ Tags

We have expanded the tags to give you a broader way to find relevant conversations around topics of interest. Scroll down to the Tag Cloud, click a tag and go.

*BEST PRACTICE - Be sure to add tags to your posts to make it easier for your peers to find your conversation!

That's it for this week! We will see you next week with more information.
