Counting down the days until October to experience the magic and excitement of Dreamforce? So are we! The good news is that you can get started with Dreamforce right now in the Success Community.
A few years ago, the Dreamforce App moved to the Success Community, making it possible for Dreamforce to live on year-round. You don’t have to get everything done in only four days. The same experts that you meet at Dreamforce are active members in the community. You can network and make connections beforehand, meet them in person on site, and continue those relationships after Dreamforce.
The Community is the best resource to prepare you for Dreamforce. Determine what you’re looking to get out of Dreamforce and make a game plan. Join some of the Dreamforce groups in the Community to learn about sessions relevant to you, hear what to expect on site, and get all of your burning Dreamforce questions answered.
Hear from Erica Kuhl, VP of Community, and Amanda Garcia, Events Telesales and Sales Enablement Manager, as they give you top tips on how to utilize the Salesforce Success Community, straight from the Road to Dreamforce:
