eX Summit is coming to Phoenix - October 25, 2018.

8:00am - 12:30pm at Infusionsoft

eX Phoenix

After starting in Indianapolis, and expanding to Cincinnati, Minneapolis, Columbus and Philadelphia, we’re going West!

War for top talent as never been fiercer. In order to attract AND retain highly engaged employees, companies must focus on their culture and employee experience as a differentiator to remain competitive. Influential business leaders from throughout the Valley of the Sun will cover various employee experience topics (see agenda below).


  • 7:50am – 8:05am:

    Light breakfast and networking.

  • 8:10am – 8:30am:

    ‘EXpresso shot of HR disruption”, by Stephan Vincent, Founder of eX Summit and eX Podcast.

    I’m sorry to tell you this, but the HR function the way you know it is dying.
    The point is that HR is going through a radical shift the same way the marketing function was disrupted 15 ago by data and digital transformation. Marketing today has nothing to do with what marketing was back then.
    Data driven insight, a focus on customer pain points, the development of strategies to engage with customers and to create personalized experiences will become the norm in the world of HR in the coming ways.
    Whether you like it or not, change is coming. It’s up to you to decide what you’re going to do with it.
