Today on the Salesforce Admins Podcast we’re discussing the Salesforce World Tours (coming to a city near you) with Rebecca Saar, Marketing Manager for Admin Relations at Salesforce.
More about this Insights session: all the exciting things in store for the Salesforce World Tours and how you can get more involved with your community.
You should subscribe for the full episode, but here are a few takeaways from our conversation with Rebecca Saar and Gillian Bruce.
Coming to a theater near you.
If you haven’t been to a Salesforce World Tour, “it’s a great opportunity for Admins to come experience the Salesforce magic in person,” Rebecca says. In particular, the Trailhead experience has been growing and growing, and it’s a great place to start your day and earn some badges.
There’s also the theater, “where you can learn from your fellow Admins,” Rebecca says, and booths where you can get any questions you might have answered. “Dreamforce is incredible, it’s awesome,” Gillian says, “but it truly is awesome in all of the ways,” it’s enormous and maybe even a little overwhelming. The World Tour is nice because it’s a scaled-down version, so it’s a great way to dip your toe in the water and see what Salesforce events are all about. Plus, it’s free.
Bring questions because we have answers.
One of the most important things you can do to get the most out of World Tour is to come prepared, Rebecca says, “because there will be people on-site who can answer them.” That’ll be people like Gillian and Rebecca, but also Salesforce Community experts who are volunteering their time to give back.
It’s not just Admins that you’re there to work with a connect with, either. There are product experts, like the Product Managers we talk to on this podcast who will be there to talk about their specific project and get feedback.
The Salesforce secret sauce (it’s community).
“There’s so much more than just the World Tour content that happens around a World Tour,” Gillian says. This year, we’ll have an area focused solely on how to get connected into your local user groups: the Community Coves.
We talk a lot about the “Salesforce Secret Sauce,” which is the community, the love, and the generosity that encourages everyone to help each other and connect. “World Tour is kind of like a mega user group,” Gillian says, “you can show up and absorb information and whatever you want to participate in is there for you.”
A lot of local User Groups will be organizing fun events around World Tour as well. In DC, there will be a Women in Tech Happy Hour right after the event; and in New York, there’s a huge User Group event with Salesforce Product Managers the night before. “I think a lot of User Groups take advantage of having so many people in the same area who are from the ecosystem but working on different things,” Gillian says. Don’t miss out on the fun.
