Behind the Scenes of INBOUND 2020 | S02 E12
As businesses shifted toward remote work in early 2020 in the wake of Coronavirus, notable events and conferences like South by Southwest and Adobe Summitt were forced to cancel. While employees transitioned to working from home, businesses and event planners were forced to reconsider their strategies. How could they continue to host captivating events while still enabling their attendees to network and engage with one another in a virtual setting? That was the question facing the team behind INBOUND, HubSpot's annual event. The conference, known for its influential speakers, exceptional content and HubSpot product announcements, transitioned to be fully virtual for its 2020 iteration. To get a sense of how the team adapted and put on such a noteworthy event in the face of overwhelming circumstances, Chris sat down with HubSpot's Courtney Dagher and Alysa Sheridan on the INBOUND team.

Throughout the episode, Guido and Chris discuss the intersection between creative and UX design and how together, they can serve as key differentiators for your product, your website and your brand. As a whole, user experience is largely about delivering on the expectations of the user — and you can do that by aligning with UX best practices and presenting them in unique, creative ways.

Mike Redbord on Crafting Powerful Customer Experiences | S02 E07
After spending the past few episodes talking about the customer experience, Weslee and Guido came to the conclusion that it’s a holistic process. One team cannot take full responsibility for the crafting of powerful experiences for your customers that leads to retention and eventually expansion. As marketers, Weslee and Guido know their work starts with finding the right leads and setting the stage for sales and service to deliver on the brand promise. Beyond that, their ability to talk to the full process is slightly limited. In light of that, Weslee and Guido brought in former HubSpot VP of Global Customer Support and current VP of Operations for SaaSWorks, Mike Redbord. Redbord's years of experience in customer success and support, including the launch and development of HubSpot Service Hub, set up an excellent conversation to gather insights about what it takes for businesses to craft meaningful and powerful relationships with their customers.
