Speaking at Dreamforce has been sort of an annual tradition for me for the last 7 years! It was great fun presenting multiple sessions in 2017. This year, I wasn’t sure if I’ll be speaking as I had been asked to help out as a session owner helping other speakers.
As destiny would have it though, this will probably be my busiest Dreamforce as a speaker! I’ve been buried with the preparation workload of multiple sessions – so much so that I write this post on my flight to San Francisco with Dreamforce starting in less than 72 hours!
Read on to know more about my Dreamforce 2018 sessions!
