Why Customer Buds?

As current professionals working in client success, our co-founders, Alvin Meledath and Jane Zhao noticed that there was a lack of resources and ambiguity surrounding roles within the client success field. 

Therefore, Customer Buds was created with the goal of not only showcasing the value of customer-focused roles and increasing visibility, but also supporting young professionals and college students who are interested in the field.

Customer Buds hopes to uplift and empower others, as we support each other in our various career journeys.

  • Biweekly Clubhouse Events
  • AMA & Speaker events
