Achievers Customer Experience

6 reasons why you should attend Achievers Customer Experience 2015

by Rebecca Wetherbee

If you haven’t been to Achievers Customer Experience (ACE) before, you’re probably wondering why you should come. What’s in it for you?

ACE is more than just a user conference; it’s an incredible opportunity to learn from top-notch speakers, earn HRCI recertification credits, and socialize with like-minded people, all against the backdrop of one of the most beautiful cities on Earth: San Francisco.

We’ve come up with six distinct reasons why you should come join us at ACE this November 2nd & 3rd:

  1. Compelling Content

We’ve carefully crafted sessions that will appeal to all of our attendees, whether you’re a customer of ours or not. We have three different session tracks that will help you Aspire to Greatness, Achieve Brilliance, or Accelerate Your Program. You’ll learn how the science of emotional intelligence will help you influence employees, how to build a business case for social recognition, and how you can give employees the experience they’re craving. See the full agenda:

The best part is, by attending ACE you can earn 10.75 HRCI General recertification credits towards your PHR, SPHR, GPHR, or California certification! (Click here to see which sessions apply for Business or Global Credits.)

  1. Inspirational Speakers

Not only do we have great session topics, but our sessions will be hosted by the most forward-thinking people in HR. Come hear from brilliant minds (and beautiful faces) like Marcus Buckingham, Dan Harris, Jennifer McClure, David Brennan and many more. We’ve got a full list + bios right here:

  1. Product Release

At Achievers, we’re constantly innovating. By coming to ACE, you’ll be among the first group of people to hear about the exciting new features and updates we’re planning for the Employee Success Platform™ in the coming months. We’ll also provide a tour of the features we’ve added over the past year, including video recognitions, our mobile apps, Program Investment Planner, Celebrations, Results Driver, and much more.

  1. Giving Back

Social responsibility is a priority for the whole Achievers team, and we know it matters a lot to you too. That’s why we are continuing to collaborate with Free the Children to gather donations for education efforts in the village of Oloirien, Kenya. Through our fundraising, the village has been able to build a new classroom and start micro-lending and business programs for men and women.

  1. Networking 24/7

Did you know that Bon Appetit just named San Francisco the Best Food City in the Country? That’s why we’ve created an incredible networking event on Monday night: Taste of the Bay. Take a tour with us through Napa Valley, Fisherman’s Wharf, the Mission, and more — without putting on your walking shoes. We’re bringing the best of the Bay to the InterContinental so that you can mingle with your new friends and colleagues, rub elbows with speakers, and get to know the Achievers A-Team! We’ll also provide breakfast keynotes on both days.

  1. San Francisco!

For the past five years, we’ve held ACE in beautiful — and cold — Toronto. While we love our founding city, we thought this was the right time to bring ACE to one of the most desirable destinations in the country. We hope you’ll find some time before or after the event to climb the hills, ride the trolleys, traverse the Golden Gate, and take part in some of the wonderful things San Francisco offers its visitors. All of the SF-based Achievers will be eager to recommend their favorite food spots, watering holes, and shopping streets!
