"Gamification is a hot topic at the moment and I'm delighted to be joining a panel of experts and thought-leaders to discuss its future and application to business," said Giles House, VP Marketing Communications and Products, CallidusCloud. "At CallidusCloud we are blazing a trail with gamification to drive greater sales motivation and engagement. The days of a cash-only incentive scheme are numbered.

This approach will drive a step-change in sales teams' performance."
