Is it just me or has the HubSpot development team been going absolutely nuts the last couple of weeks?!
Every time I check my HubSpot Updates Slack channel (which is about every five minutes), there seems to be a new feature or update going live -- And boy, do we have some good ones this week!
In this episode of the Hubcast, we discuss who did and who DID NOT get accepted to speak at INBOUND this year, another amazing upcoming event you need to attend, plus all of those juicy HubSpot product updates.
Scott Harrison: “Scott returns to INBOUND after speaking as a keynote in 2013 where he shared his powerful and personal story behind the founding of charity: water. His passion for eradicating the global water health crisis combined with his impactful business approaches over the past decade have helped charity: water continue to grow and expand its mission across the world.”
Beth Comstock: “Beth's impressive run as Vice Chair at one of the world's biggest companies, GE, has solidified her place as of the most highly regarded and innovative businesspeople across multiple industries ranging from media to health, energy, manufacturing, transportation, finance, and software. Her belief and policy that change starts with the individual and that organization change programs need to focus on personal agency has had a lasting impact on GE and strengthened its foundation with new and exciting approaches to conducting business. “
HubSpot Wish List
“We have a number of team members and the new Snippets tool in HubSpot Sales Pro looks nice. My only concern is that it could get out of control. Would it be possible to do something similar to how you have filters on templates?
As I create a snippet there would be an option to share with the team or make it private.”
