What last year’s attendees have to say about the value of attending Exceed

“EXCEED is different particularly since it’s a conference dedicated to sales ops, which is something that hasn’t been done before. And more so, you come back from the event smarter because you’re surrounded by peers who face the same challenges." - Deb Estrada, Vice President, Global Sales Operations at Gigamon

“Whenever I get asked to participate in an event, I always evaluate whether it's going to be worthwhile in terms of the impact it will have for me and for my company. EXCEED was very personal and I never felt like a moment was wasted. Don't miss next year!” - Michelle Reynaud, Vice President, Global Sales Systems & Processes at Symantec

“The networking is phenomenal. You’re going to meet peers from a lot of different companies that you can call on later to get answers. When you combine this networking with the chance to build important professional relationships, and a couple days focused on problem solving, that’s a can’t-lose proposition.” - Eddie Mello, Senior Director of GTM Operations at Juniper Networks.

“EXCEED was so first class, I can’t even image what next year will be like!” - John Kaplan, Managing Partner at GrowthPlay
