My Text Analytics Panel Got All Goofy

What happens when you mix together a panel discussion on text analytics with Goofy? Here’s the answer…

Yesterday was a busy day at the Clarabridge user group meeting in Orlando (at the Disney Yacht Club). I started the morning giving the keynote speech and ended the day by moderating a panel called “Introducing your CFO to your Customer – Lessons Learned in CEM Funding.” (Believe it or not, that’s actually an interesting topic :-))

As you can see in the video, Goofy walked in on us as the panel was coming to an end. I knew it was going to happen (thanks Keri), but the attendees and panelists didn’t know he was coming. It turned out to be a very appropriate ending to the first day of an event at Disney!

The bottom line: It’s okay to add some Goofyness to a business meeting.
