We invite you and your colleagues to join us LIVE as we take the highest rated industry conference back on the road in 2022 - join us and the elite in the industry at the 17th annual NEXT GENERATION Contact Center & Customer Engagement Best Practices Conferences!



"The culture of constant innovation at Dialpad extends to every corner of the company. In my experience, I haven’t seen a solution with the breadth and depth of Dialpad because it brings phone/voice, contact center, meetings, messaging, and AI across all channels under one umbrella. The company owned AI provides real time coaching & guidance, transcription, and unmatched customizable insights. Unlike legacy on-premises systems and outdated cloud platforms, Dialpad’s modern natively-built cloud architecture can reliably meet the communications and contact center needs of any size organization, in any location and vertical. It won’t be long before Dialpad’s market leadership becomes clear," said EVP of Global Sales at Dialpad, Jim Nystrom. "Craig has built an amazing company and brought together a fantastic team. I’m excited about our future together."

Kent Venook joins Dialpad to focus on building the sales development team. Venook has repeatedly demonstrated his ability to lead sales development teams and execute flawlessly in support of modern marketing, most recently as Area Vice President of Global Business Development at RingCentral, and previously building the sales development organization for the U.S. and EMEA markets at Talkdesk during its significant growth phase.

"I am beyond excited to build and grow the world-class sales development organization within Dialpad, which has been on the cutting edge of contact center, unified communications and hybrid work long before the COVID-19 pandemic made these workplace practices common," said VP of Global Sales Development at Dialpad, Kent Venook. "Dialpad trademarked Work From Anywhere™ in 2016 and we remain committed to transforming how the world works together through innovative voice, video, and messaging cloud solutions."
