Dreamforce Recap: Don't Dream it's Over

After weeks and weeks and months of lead up... it finally happened. Dreamforce 2018. The event I'd been determined to get to the moment I walked into Bootcamp at TrailheaDX six months ago.

Of course far too much happened for me to cover in a blog, so I'll just recap my top five favourite experiences, in no particular order of course.

Empower Your Admin and Supercharge Your Business
Our session couldn't have gone better! We had a packed house, and lots of familiar faces in the room, but the best part - people stopping us during the week to tell us they enjoyed our session and how much they got out of it!
The #AwesomeAdmin Keynote
During my journey this year, I've gotten to know and really love my fellow #AwesomeAdmins, and as my first ever Dreamforce Keynote, it did not disappoint. I even got to sit in the front row and be right in the action!
The #AwesomeAdmin Lip Sync Battle
I mean, I'm sure you all know by now that I don't mind the spotlight...

Volunteering
I love being able to share my passion for Salesforce and help other people discover what makes this community so special. I worked four shifts in different stations - Trailblazer Community Cove, Camp Quick Start, Admin Meadow and Lightning Rapids. I probably got the most out of volunteering and helping the community then I did from any of the other sessions I attended. If World Tour is coming to you, or for future TrailheaDX or Dreamforce events, consider volunteering for a shift or two - you won't regret it!

Ohana
The people! Oh my gosh, the people! While volunteering is amazing, it's the people that made my Dreamforce so special! So many wonderful people I was already fortunate to meet at either TrailheaDX, MidWest Dreamin, or WITness Success were there, so it really was just like a big family reunion. Then of course there were all those that I'd connected with online that I finally got to spend some time with in person. My heart was full of so much #Trailheart for the whole week.

I had my full circle moment when I got to be part of the giant "log photo". I remember seeing the one from last year, and thinking how fun it would be to to be a part of that group... and well, fast forward to this year, and I'm a part of it!

I'm already planning which events I want to go to next, as I've finally found my tribe. Thank you to everyone who made it such an incredible week!

So... I continue to have one of the craziest/busiest years of my life, and Dreamforce is no exception! I've kind of spent the year with ...
