In this part of the world - San Francisco/Bay Area - attending industry events can be a full-time job for tech analysts. I don’t quite travel in those circles, but this is one of those weeks. I actually had three events to attend this week out here, but could only - barely - manage two. Am about to fly back to Toronto, and for now, will just share some photos, but there’s more to come.
The main event for me was Talkdesk’s analyst summit, and as good as it was, this was analyst-only, and with just about everything being under NDA, all I can do here is share some basic photos. Zoomtopia was my second event, and was only able to catch the tail-end, but the visit sure was worthwhile. Now that I’m on Zoom’s radar, I hope to attend their full event next year.
Talkdesk CEO/Founder Tiago Paiva, SVP Product Marketing, Charanya Kannan, and a group shot of the analysts in attendance (thanks to Steve Bell for that one)
Contact center panel with Five9, Sir Richard Branson in conversation via video with CMO Janine Pelosi, and a big finish with CEO/Founder Eric Yuan and team hamming it up with Shout! and thanking everyone for coming.
Fun time after the event - believe it or not - Snoop Dogg, followed by Leonard Skynyrd. Who came up with that one? Anyhow, Skynyrd was great, and no, there was no duet with Snoop to close things out!
