Maximum Impact at HG United
After a year of rapid growth in revenue, headcount, and market standing, HG Insights came together this January at the annual HG United event on the Santa Barbara shoreline. Overlooking the Pacific, teams from around the world met, strategized, and learned about what’s in store in 2023 for HG Insights.
HG United 2023 hosted top leaders from different sectors of global business.
Across three days the entire company met at HG Insights in Santa Barbara for exciting news, activities, and inspiration. This year’s theme was Maximum Impact and there were many great guests and presentations that did just that! In addition to the HG executive team unveiling the exciting things in store for HG in 2023 — through priority objectives and key results, transformation strategies, and data deep dives— HG hosted top leaders from different sectors of global business:
- Michael Crandell (CEO, Bitwarden) presented a session on personal and professional development with gold nugget learnings picked up on his life as a tech leader.
- Franklin Herbas (VP SAP Crystal Ball) reaffirmed the long-standing partnership between SAP and HG with a presentation highlighting the positive outcomes made from working together over the years.
- Skip Miller (author, ProActive Selling) held a barn-storming master class on how to extend sales far beyond any one department.
Of course, the company kickoff was a wonderful time of making connections with remote colleagues, delicious meals, and exciting company events (even some karaoke)! And making a maximum impact!
