If you’re anything like me, 2016 feels like it just started - but it’s wild to realize that no, in fact, we’re already more than halfway through April. Yep you read that right, we are already almost into the fifth month of 2016. Now if you are really like me, you’ll know that May, the fifth month of the year, means one thing, and one thing only. Mother’s Day? Nope. Memorial Day? No sir. CompCloud? Heck yes! With only 30 days until the big event, I thought I’d share with you 10 things to look forward to at this year’s event. If you’ve been to CompClouds in the past, then you know what I'm talking about, but if you haven't, then trust me - you won’t want to miss it!
Dan Harris, our special guest this CompCloud, is the co-anchor of both Nightline and the weekend edition of Good Morning America on ABC News. He is also the author of 10% Happier, a #1 New York Times bestselling book about a fidgety, skeptical news anchor who stumbles upon meditation. Harris has become a leading voice for pushing the practice into the mainstream, using plain English and dry humor.
For the sixth year in a row, CompCloud will be head in San Francisco. The City offers something for everyone and is easily navigated on foot or with public transportation - so you can hit a few tourist spots while you're in town for the conference. Need some suggestions for where to go and what to do? Check out our handy guide to the city!
FOX – or Friends of Xactly – is the advocate community that Xactly created using the Influitive platform. FOX is a place for friends of Xactly to interact with our company and with each other – from sharing the latest articles to weighing in with powerful opinions, FOX is the place to be for those who want to be a part of the SaaS family. There will be a FOX booth prominently displayed at CompCloud where you'll be able to join the community, redeem points, or mingle with the masterminds behind the program.
CompCloud is a great place to take your Xactly Certifications. In order to Get Certified, you'll want to attend optional sessions on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday; this will take your knowledge of Incent/ Analytics to the next level. Training and Certifications like this are an invaluable way to tackle your professional development head on, and it's also a great way to demonstrate the importance of attending this event to management!
At Xactly Corporation, promoting a spirit of giving and engagement extends the C.A.R.E values of our company's culture into the communities where our employees live and work. XactlyOne organizes volunteer opportunities and projects for employees, and encourages them to take action and donate their time and talents in their local neighborhoods. XactlyOne volunteers strive to make a meaningful impact and create positive changes, and the rewarding experience of helping others further strengthens the Xactly team. There will be two opportunities to support XactlyOne at this year's event, so get ready to get involved!
Enjoy a fun evening with friends at the #xactlylovesme customer party - held at Lucky Strike bowling alley!
The Hyatt - Embarcadero
For the third year in a row, CompCloud will be taking over the Hyatt Regency San Francisco. The hotel is situated along San Francisco's iconic Embarcadero, with stunning views of the waterfront and Ferry Building. Enjoy the sights, take a walk beside the bay, and treat yourself to a fine dining experience at one of the Ferry Building's top restaurants (Our suggestion? The Slanted Door).
Earn CompCloud badges by focusing on a particular area, or enhancing your knowledge across all available areas. Throughout the course of different sessions, you will hear from your peers about how they use Incent for ideas on how you can improve your efficiency and effectiveness.
Xactly Roadmap to the Future
