It's 7:30 a.m. on a Thursday morning -- at least it is here on the East Coast. Normally, I would be bending over backward to ease you into the day with a few inspirational quotes or maybe even a quick how-to. But at this moment, you and I have bigger fish to fry. Here's the deal, folks. Early bird pricing for IMPACT Live '18 ends on January 17 -- and if you haven't gotten your tickets yet, I'm going to need you to sit down. You and I are going to have little chat.
And just like that, IMPACT Live has come and gone! Yesterday was the second and final day of IMPACT Live 2017 and it was just as memorable as the first. (When, if you recall, we announced IMPACT Live 2018 will have a free option. No big deal.)
Live from Hartford, it’s IMPACT Live! If you weren’t in the room or watching on Facebook this afternoon, the first day of IMPACT Live was certainly one worth talking about. To kick-off the SNL-themed event, attendees (marketing and sales leaders from across the country) were surprised with an original “cold-open” skit filmed on-location at our venue and starring several members of the IMPACT team. While there was a great deal of excitement to be had all day, the biggest highlight had to be the announcement of IMPACT Live 2018.
Sales doesn’t come naturally to everyone. As Liam Neeson would say, succeeding in the industry takes a very particular set of skills, a unique personality and motivation, and, of course, a tough skin to handle the daily grind of closing deals. Even if you have these qualities, you may not realize it until they’re called upon. At least that’s what happened to Senior Lecturer at Harvard and former HubSpot Chief Revenue Officer, Mark Roberge. This August, Mark is taking the stage at IMPACT Live (along with many of his fellow HubSpot pioneers) to share some of the things he’s learned on his road to success and in preparation of the big event, he sat down with our CEO, Bob, to give us a little preview. Check out their chat below:
The robots are taking over. But contrary to what Hollywood would have us believe, this isn’t a bad thing -- especially not for marketers. This August, marketing and sales leaders like yourself are descending on Hartford, CT for IMPACT Live 2017 and, among other things, artificial intelligence (AI) is going to be a hot topic. One of the leading experts and researchers of artificial intelligence in marketing is Paul Roetzer, and earlier this month, Bob had the chance to sit down with him to discuss the future of AI in marketing and why he’s coming to IMPACT Live to spread the word.
Just under 3 months until IMPACT Live! If you're not familiar with it, IMPACT Live 2017 is a two-day, invite only experience where marketing leaders grow and make valuable connections while actually having a good time. In preparation for the big occassion, our Founder and CEO, Bob sat down with a few of our brilliant speakers at HubSpot Partner Day a few weeks ago. So, let me introduce a good friend of ours, George B Thomas!
How much would you give to spend 30 minutes with David Meerman Scott discussing your biggest marketing challenges and goals? How about Mike Volpe? Joanna Wiebe? Marcus Sheridan? This August, these marketing and sales leaders (and more) are descending on Hartford, CT for IMPACT Live 2017, an exclusive, two-day experience where they’ll actually connect and work with professionals like you, one-on-one. Side note: Make sure you're there! Request your invitation now. In the coming weeks, we’ll be taking a few minutes to chat with each of the brilliant thought leaders you’ll get to see, meet, and learn from at IMPACT Live. First up is Father of the HubSpot Partner Program and Databox CEO, Pete Caputa.
