Dharmesh Shah and Customer Delightion (Making Your Whole Business Inbound) - "Like Dharmesh, I’ll unflinchingly admit to being an introvert.

Thoughts on @Dharmesh Shah and #Inbound13 - "However, the more 'inboundy' the leads got, the less effective was traditional training. Moreover, the trend toward sharing, transparency and free was the exact opposite of the 'hold back information until they buy' mentality." - @RainMakerMaker - Tweet it.
Hubspot Partner Agency Keynote at #Inbound13 Recap -"After seeing the success that the partner program has been able to produce, Hubspot has decided to do away with this two channel approach and start blending the two channels into one unified front. This is a win-win-win for Hubspot, Hubspot customers, and partner agencies." - @GuavaBox - Tweet It.
