I would revisit the Dublin City no matter what, love the food and the people but this time was to be at Digital Sales World 2018 an event powered by AA-ISP one of the top-notch leader organizations to support the advancement of Inside Sales Profession but also a place for companies to grow and motivate their employees by having access to a community of experts, resources, events etc. #DSW2018
The field of Inside Sales is not easy needs a lot of dedication and learning but is worth every minute you spent in this field and nothing can replace that feeling when you support customers accomplish their business GOALS.

Here’s a brief insight into what happened at the conference:
Confirmed the adequation of gamification to Millennials and to the Internet natives workforce.
Confirmed the sensitive and somewhat volatile nature of gamification impact.
Gamification cannot be “switched on”, it is a managerial process that performs best when leveraging a participative style of management that empowers teams to endorse legitimate objectives and shape and control their game.
Rewards can be integrated effectively in gamification as long as they remain relatively minor and are not over-emphasized.
Gamification offers some significant side benefits in terms of real-time feedback and ease of use.
“Before turning 21, the average American has spent 2,000 – 3,000 hours reading books and more than 3x that playing video games. That makes the average Millennial very close to being a gaming expert” [Malcolm Gladwell In “Outliers: The Story of Success”]
