Getting the Most out of Salesforce World Tour: Melbourne
By: Ian Jenkins, Managing Director, Enrite Solutions
The Salesforce World Tour is a global roadshow where nonprofit organizations can learn how Salesforce technology is delivering the most advanced technology in today’s cloud, social and mobile world.
The decision to invest your time in attending an IT conference can be a difficult. Time is a precious commodity and people often think they are better off spending more time ‘on the job’, instead of ‘window shopping’ the various booths at an IT conference.
Sure, the Salesforce World Tour has some sales hungry people looking for your dollar, but it’s also a wonderful opportunity to network with a range of people who can benefit your organization and your career, including:
- Liked minded people who share similar business problems;
- Industry thought leaders who will inspire better use of technology;
- Salesforce technicians at your disposal, who can help answer your questions and drive better use of the platform;
- Vendors who have pre-built solutions to exactly meet your needs.
The Salesforce World Tour: Melbourne is no doubt a great opportunity to see the latest features in this forever evolving platform, and understand how your organization can best benefit from them. It’s great to see what’s available now and what’s coming soon. More importantly it’s a brilliant opportunity to spend the day touching the technology, hearing about the features it provides, and examining the benefits for your organization. I guarantee you will come away with a lot of information and new ideas, and possibly a new mindset of what this technology can do for your organization.
Making the Most out of the Day:
If it’s your first visit to the Salesforce World Tour, it can be a little daunting. To get the most out of your day, here are my top tips:
- Ask yourself “what do you want to achieve from the conference”, and make a plan to ensure you get the most from your day.
- Write down your top 5 questions you want answered.
- Identify the sessions that are best for you.
- Seek out Salesforce technicians and ask as many questions as you can.
- Network with people from similar organizations (give and receive as many business cards as you can).
- Learn from the thought leaders who present at the conference.
- Enjoy the day and take in the razzle dazzle
