InTheBlack is the
event for networking, maximizing value from your BlackLine solutions, and
driving the next wave of accounting and finance innovation. This year’s
conference is back in Los Angeles and it’s designed to help you accelerate
digital finance transformation at your organization.

If you haven’t read the first five reasons to attend InTheBlack, head over to that blog first. Here are three more reasons you’ll want to be at InTheBlack 2019 on September 16-19.

Guest & Celebrity Main
Stage Keynotes

Everyone loves a good
scandal, and there are valuable lessons to be learned from financial scandals
in particular. This is why we’ve invited Tyler Shultz, the whistleblower from
Theranos, to give a keynote.

On Tuesday morning, Tyler
will talk about ethics, compliance, and the importance of building trust,
internally and externally. He’ll also answer questions like, how can a company
acquire a $10 billion valuation built on fraud, and what leads someone to
defraud hundreds of employees, thousands of investors, and millions of patients
on an unprecedented scale?

We’ll close out the morning
with the authors of the Freakonomics series, Stephen Dubner and Steven Levitt. It’s
been almost 15 years since Freakonomics was published, but it’s still highly
relevant today, and the Freakonomics
podcast
is reaching hundreds of thousands of people every week.

The authors will go deep into
the esoteric sides of economics, and talk about the impact incentives have on everything
from your finance transformation projects to your human relationships.

On Wednesday morning, Therese
Tucker will be interviewing Billy Jean King, former world number one
professional tennis player and barrier breaker. She created new inroads for men
and women in sports and beyond during her legendary career, and continues to
make her mark today. Their conversation is sure to be a conference highlight.

The Sandbox

If you’ve attended InTheBlack
before, you already know the value of digging into The Sandbox. This area
allows you to test new elements of your implementation or new BlackLine features.
Product Managers will give you an in-depth walk through of our roadmap, and you
can help design the future of BlackLine with feedback on what you think will
work best for you and your users.

Our team of expert solution
consultants will also be there to show you more ways to use the products you
already own, and other products you’re interested in learning more about. 

Customer Success Lab

The Customer Success Lab is
your opportunity to engage one-on-one with a Customer Success Manager, who
works with customers just like you every day to help optimize their BlackLine
solutions.

Molly Boyle, former senior manager
of corporate accounting at Under Armour and current senior manager of solutions
marketing at BlackLine says, “I was always amazed and continue to be impressed
by the number of new enhancements that the product team is coming up with on a
semi-annual and sometimes even more frequent basis.

“It’s always a great
opportunity to sit down, log into your instance of BlackLine with someone who’s
an expert, and really explore how you can get more out of it. Maybe you have
some questions that are difficult to answer over the phone or via email—what
better way to get those knocked out than to stop by the Customer Success Lab
and schedule some time with one of our experts?”

You can also meet with our
Accounting Innovation team who can tackle your most challenging reconciliations,
helping you get them out of spreadsheets and into BlackLine.
