Let’s break the echo chamber

At Planhat, we love the customer success space, and we want to be a part of driving the conversations in the space forward.

Why? Because it’s by pushing forward the conversation where we challenge our preconceptions and grow as a field, together.

With that in mind, we’ve organized a webinar with three experts to explore the CS topics that most teams shy away from.

Watch the session to learn if:

  • customer success should own EVERYTHING that happens post-initial purchase

  • customer success follow/influencer lists are now just popularity awards

  • Business Reviews (EBR/QBRs) MUST occur every quarter

  • customer success teams MUST have their own tech stack

  • people make customer success too complicated

  • every CSM should have variable compensation on 3 things: renewal, expansion, and advocacy

  • a lot of Customer Success teams are just rebranded Support teams
