Subex User Conference 2018 Recap
The theme of this year’s conference was “Reimagining Business” and Subex clearly demonstrated their commitment to this concept by breaking outside of their comfort zone of starting their revolutionary technology event with a session from a futurist and taking a chance to bring me on board. Ramya and Rohit told me that they wanted me to energize their delegates in a way that will set the tone for the rest of their experience in Malta and to help their audience connect better with one another. As with every event, my number one goal is to far exceed the expectations of what the organizers hired me to do and I was confident I could make this happen for them.
Given the history of the event’s past speakers, I was unsure how the audience might initially respond to my session but as soon as I got on stage, all of my apprehensions faded away. No matter where I go, no matter who I speak to, people are more or less the same: everyone loves to connect with new people, laugh, and grow as human beings. Ramya later told me that this was the first time she saw every single delegate participating which was so awesome to hear. We’re all connected through our humanity and I believe this perfectly ties into the sub-theme of “Reimagining Customers.”
With the advent of new technologies, we are more connected than ever and we’ve never been more accessible to our customers. It’s important to remember that the people we serve have dreams, aspirations, and fears just like anyone else. When we remember to connect with one another on a deeper level through sharing stories and truly helping others, our businesses grow and our hearts are left more fulfilled. After speaking with Subex’s CEO, Vinod Kumar, at the event the night prior and learning that his personal desire is to build something that will impact the greater good of India, especially those that lack equal access to resources and opportunities, I understood why Subex was such a great company. I will never forget the outstanding experience I got to share with everyone at the 2018 User Conference and I’m sure all of the attendees feel the same way.
As always, I’m grateful for the opportunity to share my message all around the world and to meet amazing people such as the incredible team at Subex and all of its wonderful partners and customers.
