Mark Your Calendars: Empower 2020

Last verified May 20, 2021


Get ready for a major knowledge drop. Empower, Guru's annual conference for everyone across CX, Sales, and Knowledge Management is back for another year!

Join us in Philly May 19th- 21st for a few days of refreshingly relevant speakers and the chance to cultivate valuable communities with thought-leaders from hundreds of industry leading companies like Slack, Zoom, Spotify, Square, and Shopify, to name a few. 

 *WARNING:  This will not be a passive conference! Between engaging keynote speakers, collaborative lighting talks, learning lab workshops, and the potential for spontaneous dance-offs, there won't be a dull moment.

We know — there are a ton of great conferences out there. You have to be picky about what’s worth your time and money. To give you some insight into why we think Empower is well worth it, let’s take a moment to reminisce on all that last year’s conference had to offer…

Attendees of Empower 2019 heard from incredible speakers, brought back implementable learnings and action plans, and networked with fellow leaders. Here’s a quick look back:

"Empower was genuine, welcoming, and covered cutting-edge and thought-provoking ground."

Looks pretty amazing, right? The great news is that 2020 is shaping up to be an even bigger opportunity. 

Some aspects of the conference to look forward to:

  •  Community Cohorts:  We believe that cultivating the right connections has the ability to make or break a conference. We’ll do the heavy lifting for you and facilitate the kinds of meaningful conversations that make a conference well worth it. By grouping attendees into community cohorts, we connect you with the right people before, during, and after Empower. We want to ensure that you’re working alongside fellow thought-leaders that will incite inspiration and leave you with plenty of food for thought. 

  •  Tailored Learning:  Hear from speakers with real-life stories that will resonate. We’re not looking to bore you with high-level industry fluff. Keynotes will address challenges that you’ve experienced and provide you with takeaways to enact real change within your org.

  •  Insights into Action:  Transform the “a-ha!” moments that arise throughout a conference into an actionable plan. Facilitated workshops and sessions will have you walking out of empower with a concrete playbook in hand to jumpstart new projects and initiatives.

After two jam-packed days, you’ll leave inspired, better informed, and in a position to empower your teams to create best-in-class customer experiences, drive revenue, and do their best work yet. Join us for an unforgettable event and a chance to create meaningful communities amidst industry leaders. Not to mention a fun few days of experiencing all that Philly has to offer!

We are stoked for you to be there. Register today to take advantage of our early bird pricing, available until February 29th.
