Honky Cat - DF19 Preview

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 a "always say yes" type of philosophy, which has taken me literally all over the world.... but that's for a future blog post!

For now, I'm going to give an overview of what I'm going to be involved in at Salesforce's most wonderful time of the year,  Dreamforce. I am speaking four times. That's right FOUR times. And you know what? I submitted three sessions, and none of them were selected. I've had a wile ride since last year's Dreamforce as a first time attendee and speaker, and it just goes to show that sometimes the right opportunities have a way of finding you.

So with that, here's what I'm up to:

AppExchange Street Team


The AppExchange Street Team are a group of Salesforce MVPs and AppExchange All Stars who spend the week at Dreamforce having an extra bit of fun helping attendees enter to win prizes! As a self proclaimed Appy Enthusiast, I'm so excited to be a part of this team - say hi if you spot me during the week, and I'll hope you enter the contest! We're also playing a really cool game of Street Team Bingo.


Appyness Continued


I'm excited to be collaborating with Holly Rushton from the AppExchange Team to help spread some more Appyness to help Small and Medium businesses with some great options for low or no cost apps. We're presenting twice so you have two opportunities to catch us in action! Make sure you check out the Sales/Service/SMB Lodge at the Marriott as well - they had some pretty sweet swag last year, including the "build your own Astro" station!

Career Time


I'm honoured to be sharing the stage with host Shirlene Crow and fellow paneslists Aaron McGriff and Tami Lau to discuss our journeys and careers in the Salesforce ecosystem. I'm excited to talk about how Salesforce has helped me move up at my current company and in the community as well.

#AwesomeAdmin Keynote


Now any of what I've mentioned would be exciting enough, and I would be thrilled to be a part of any of them, but rounding out Thursday afternoon is what I'm most excited to be a part of.... The #AwesomeAdmin Keynote! I've been working with the amazing Admin team (we already know they're awesome!) and am so excited to be representing Canada on the big Keynote stage!

Thursday November 21, 5pm, Moscone North, Hall F | Keynote Room


I'll also have various volunteer shifts throughout the week, and might even have another special costume for the #AwesomeAdmin Games night!

For this post's soundtrack, I've gone with an Elton John classic. I recently watched Rocketman, and totally loved it... in particular Honky Cat, so I decided to name my next post after it, even if it has nothing to do with it... so, enjoy! Better get back to the woods.
