Lauren Cumming is the Director of Customer Success at Candu and also co-runs CSM LDN. She has spent her entire career immersed in the world of Customer Success at early-stage SaaS companies in both London and NZ. She spent the last four years in the Proptech space at Fixflo where she started & scaled their CS function and is now working for Candu, helping SaaS businesses improve their in-product user experiences.

Elise Marengo is the Head of Customer Success at UserPilot. A classroom teacher with a masters degree in K-12 language education, Elise never saw herself working in technology, but when she was approached by Userpilot to consider a position as their first Customer Success hire, she saw an incredible learning opportunity. What she came to realize, was that while her "classroom" was now primarily comprised of zoom rooms and her student´s age range had jumped up quite a bit, the pillars of her role still rested on the same foundation: Education.

Ryan O'Connell is the Head of Implementation and Customer Success at Thrive Learning. He has been in the learning industry for almost 15 years, helping customers user learning to drive organisational performance and objectives.
