Countdown to CompCloud

4 min read

We're now officially six weeks out from CompCloud - the incentive compensation event of the year. As planning and coordinating are well underway on our end, it's time for you to start getting prepped and excited for an action packed three days in San Francisco. Here's just a few things attendees can look forward to come May 18th:

The Power of Peter

This year's keynote speaker is none other than Peter Diamandis, Chairman and CEO of the XPrize Foundation. XPrize is an organization that is focused on innovation, and they believe that "you get what you incentivize." Since Xactly is out to change the world of incentive compensation, we were thrilled to hear about how Peter and his team uses incentives to motivate scientists and other innovators to solve some of the world's largest problems. Peter himself is focused on driving breakthroughs in products, companies, and industries. If you're interested in driving and incentivizing breakthrough thinking within your company or industry, or if you're interested in getting experts around the world motivated to solve your insolvable problems, you need to create proper incentives and establish clear, measurable, and objective goals.

Smoke on the Waterfront

For the second 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 views, take a walk along the waterfront, and treat yourself to a fine dining experience at one of the Ferry Building's top restaurants (our suggestion The Slanted Door).

One Agenda Fits All

For the first time in CompCloud history, we've revitalized the training and certification process. Now, instead of a single day of training, you'll have more ways to show off what you've learned: Get Certified or Learn and Interact. In order to Get Certified, you'll want to attend optional sessions on Monday and Wednesday; this will take your knowledge of Incent / Analytics to the next level. The following certifications can be taken at CompCloud:
  • Incent Level 1
  • Incent Level 2
  • Analytics Level 1
  • Analytics Level 2
However, if Learn and Interact is more your style, you can take advantage of the wide range of sessions which are available this year. 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.
