Higher Ed Summit Recordings Available for Viewing
I recently celebrated my 3rd anniversary at Salesforce.org. When I reach any milestone, I use it as a time to reflect on highlights, lowlights and the future. As I thought about what has made the last 3 years so rewarding, I realized it isn’t the incredible products and culture at Salesforce or the Foundation. Nor is it my amazingly awesome co-workers (sorry, guys). Rather it’s the vibrant community we’ve fostered with our higher ed customers. In my entire 20+ year career, I have never seen a more tight-knit, collaborative community as I have with Salesforce higher ed customers and partners. And I love it.
Back in February, we co-hosted the 3rd annual Higher Ed Summit with the University of Miami, which was in many ways a celebration of that community. The theme “Communities Reimagined” couldn’t have been more appropriate. We brought together 703 attendees, who represented over 60 schools, to network, ideate, innovate, share best practices (or God forbid, horror stories!), and pick each other’s brains. Attendees participated in 26 sessions, hands-on training about Mobile Messaging, and a volunteer activity that generated over 600 bags of toiletries for the homeless in Miami.
If you weren’t able to make it down to Miami, we want to share some of the presented ideas, stories and lessons learned. And if you were there, here’s your opportunity to catch some of the other sessions you weren’t able to attend or to share the sessions you really enjoyed with your colleagues. Watch the recordings.
I hope you join us for next year’s Higher Ed Summit, March 30-April 1, 2016, at Tulane University in New Orleans. I promise it will have a buzz that comes from bringing together a community on the brink of disrupting higher education. Or maybe it’s a New Orleans buzz…Either way, it’ll be fun and I hope to see you there!
