You know HYPERGROWTH. We’ve brought it to Boston, San Francisco, and London. We’ve met thousands of people in the process and learned from countless authors, entrepreneurs, and trend-makers.
So this year, we’ve stacked the deck with some pretty inspiring speakers 😉
But the one thing we’ve heard over and over is that Drift customers, the conversational marketing leaders, the ones pioneering change in their field (yes, you!), want more tactical, hands-on, behind the scenes education and training that we just haven’t given on the HYPERGROWTH stage before.
So for the first time ever, we’ll be pulling in conversational marketing pros who’ve implemented conversational strategies that have changed the way their business operates.
This is HYPERGROWTH: Insider Edition. And it’s coming to San Francisco on November 18.

Now that you know what it’s all about, here’s a quick rundown of who will be there.

Why we’re excited to hear from them: We’ve said that HYPERGROWTH: Insider Edition is going to be an event where you’ll want to take notes.

Who they are: Chief Marketing Officer at Gong.io, Author, Forbes Council Member

With more than 12 years at Salesforce and ExactTarget, Bryan will share insights on how to tackle new frontiers in marketing.
