Zoom and Betterworks CEOs to Discuss the Present & Future of Work

Zoom’s Yuan and Betterworks’ Dennerline, Former Webex Colleagues, in Free Webinar


REDWOOD CITY, Calif., July 21, 2020 -- Betterworks, the leading enterprise software for OKRs, CFRs & Engagement, is bringing together two leaders in the field of tech-enabled remote work for an informal conversation and look into the future on Thursday, July 30. The webinar will feature Zoom CEO Eric Yuan and betterworks CEO Doug Dennerline.

Yuan founded Zoom in 2011. The company was one of the highest-performing tech IPOs of 2019, and since the global pandemic Zoom has become that rarity: a product so ubiquitous it becomes a verb. Prior to founding Zoom, Yuan was corporate vice president of engineering at Cisco, where he was one of the founding engineers and a vice president of engineering at Cisco’s collaboration application Webex, growing his team from 10 engineers to more than 800 worldwide and revenue from $0 to more than $800M.

During Yuan’s time at Cisco, Doug Dennerline ran the company’s $9.8 billion dollar enterprise business and served as CEO of Webex. Subsequently, he led SuccessFactors to its $3.4 billion acquisition by SAP, was CEO of Alfresco Software, and today is leading betterworks and defining its unique position in the HR tech marketplace.

The June 30 webinar will be an informal, enlightening conversation between old friends and colleagues who have since gone on to pioneer vital tools to align, engage, and inspire teams as the world evolves at speed to fully remote or hybrid remote/on-premise work.

“In the early days of video meetings Eric and I would discuss ways we expected technology to work behavior,” said betterworks’ Dennerline. “It will be great to have Eric back in my virtual office to talk about the new world we envision, and let anyone listen in.”

Eric and Doug will share insights about a work future still taking shape, and answer questions from webinar attendees.

The webinar, ‘We’re All Generation Z Now - Zoom CEO Eric Yuan and Doug Dennerline Explore the New Era of Virtual Engagement,’ will take place Thursday, July 30, at 9:30 am PDT (12:30 pm EDT). To register, please go to
