Its customer-centric strategies, personalized experiences, and proactive approach to customer satisfaction have significantly contributed to reducing churn and fostering long-term relationships. Condé Nast’s dedication to retaining customers is not just a business strategy but a testament to its genuine commitment to delivering value – a must in the competitive publishing industry.

Revenue Growth Catalyst: Ali Proehl, TaylorMade Golf

Founder Award: Namrata Kamdar, Testlify

The Founder Award, celebrating visionary leadership, was bestowed upon Namrata Kamdar, the passionate co-founder of Testlify. Testlify aims to help SMBs, startups, and enterprise companies globally and empower HRs to build resilient and skilled workforces in their organization with quality assessment at affordable pricing.

Namrata’s entrepreneurial spirit, commitment to innovation, and dedication to building a customer-centric organization have earned her this prestigious recognition. Under Namrata’s leadership, Testlify has achieved success and become a guiding light for aspiring entrepreneurs in the subscription industry.

“Before Testlify came to life, my co-founder and I had personally experienced the pain of hiring challenges. In another tech software company, hiring people based on resumes and interviews was causing problems. We struggled with biased resumes and ended up hiring people who looked great on paper but didn’t have the right skills or fit for the job. And I wanted to do something to solve this problem for thousands of companies who are facing similar challenges in the recruitment process. We knew we could do better. So, after looking at existing solutions and doing thorough research, we took the leap to create our own solutions. And thus, Testlify was born to make hiring smarter. We’re all about real proof, not just feelings.”


Beelieve’s Beelievers Awards were a testament to the exceptional talent, innovation, and leadership within the subscription industry. Congratulations to all the winners for their outstanding contributions to shaping the future of the subscription and revenue growth landscape. These visionary leaders and organizations are the driving force behind the industry’s growth and transformation, inspiring others to “beelieve” in the power of curiosity, innovation, and customer-centricity.
