Your experience at Dreamforce 2017?

My experience at DF17 was a pretty great one! Even though there weren’t any crazy new products, there were a ton of enhancements and additional customizations announced this year. My Trailhead, my Lightning, and my Einstein all have tremendous potential and I’m looking forward to checking them out. Listening to thought leaders like Michelle Obama was very inspirational as well. Oh, and I got to meet Marc!

Funniest moment of Dreamforce 2017?

My funniest experience at DF17 would have to be my performance at the lip syncing competition on the last day. I’m normally a pretty quiet and reserved person but I thought I’d have a little fun in a friendly competition. I ended up having a blast and got a pretty good reaction from the crowd!

Your experience at Dreamforce 2017?

Dreamforce 2017 was my second Dreamforce and by far my favorite. I had just got into the admin side of Salesforce in early 2016 so I really didn’t know anyone at DF16 and wasn’t too involved in the community at the time, so most of 16 for me was learning. Dreamforce 2017 was an entirely different story.

I made sure I came in a few days early to be able to spend some time as a tourist. I ran into a few new friends in the Ohana, and was talked into walking the Golden Gate Bridge with them! It was a great walk and I got to see some iconic places with some great people.

Next, I got to speak for the first time for a large audience this year (on CPQ). I did a smaller engagement at Trailhead Live Philly but that’s was maybe 30 people, this was easily over 100 people! I was really nervous especially since my timer wasn’t working and I had no idea if I was talking too fast or too slow, so I wound up finishing 8 minutes early, but I guess I’d rather finish early rather than late, right?

Last, but certainly not least I was able to spend time with my great friends in the Ohana and meet a lot of them for the first time (in person). I never realized how many people I knew until my co-workers started calling me a “celebrity” because everywhere we went I either stopped to talk to someone, or they stopped me. It was amazing to meet so many great, caring people, and finally, meet some of my Salesforce idols in person.

Funniest moment of Dreamforce 2017?

 

Nitin Gupta Salesforce

 

My funniest moment was a really good one. After one of the parties, some friends and I in the #GifSquad were trying to figure out what to do afterward. We bounced to a few different after-hours spots and they were either too crowded and we couldn’t get in, or there was a long line outside in the pouring rain. Amy and I decided we were hungry, and since it was late we were going to pass on any more parties and go get food. We walked across the street to a restaurant that had a long line, and frustrated, I joked and said we should go to a “classy” restaurant…Burger King. We laughed about it and went to Burger King that was open late. The next day I joked that I took Amy to a classy dinner, and to this day still makes me laugh.

MVP Vibes


This is my Fifth blog post as part of the series of articles I am writing called MVP Vibes”. 

MVP Program by Salesforce include so many benefits, where it sounds so awesome, becoming MVP is not that easy, it takes continues contribution in Salesforce Community and real-time efforts.

Salesforce MVP is the one who guides community and recognizes for their Passion, Integrity, Knowledge, Courage, Vision, and Awesomeness.

Today I am introducing one of our new WINTER 2017 MVP

Fabrice Cathala

Salesforce MVP | 9x Salesforce Certified | #BaldForce | Thames Valley Developer Group Co-Leader

 

Fabrice cathala

 

How did you start your Journey?

My first contact with Salesforce was Symantec’s global roll-out in 2005. My first contact with the community was a year later when I joined a group of people and co-founded the first user group in Europe: the London User Group.

Fast forward to 2013 when I joined the London developer group. The organisers were so friendly that not only did I come back every month to learn more but I also developed new friendships which were important to me considering that I had left my friends in France. Then, in 2015, Antonina Romanova was looking for help to start a new DG in Reading, and I jumped in as a way to give back to the community.

How do you feel?

First of all, being named an MVP was a huge and pleasant surprise for me. I’ll always remember, receiving this email from Holly Firestone on February the 28th, 2017…

Now that the news has sunk in, I still find it humbling to be part of a family of such talented individuals. It’s also a little pressuring because you naturally feel compelled to rise to the challenge of honouring your fellow MVPs.

What have you been working on?

You (Nitin Gupta) certainly are aware, since you’re part of the core team with Meighan Brodkey but, for your readers, I’m launching a community driven initiative to improve the Change Sets.

There are two parts of it:

Phase 1 is about reducing the number of manual tasks when deploying with change sets. This phase is crowdsourced.

Phase 2 is about improving the user interface essentially based on high-scorer ideas found in the IdeaExchange.

Phase 1 is currently live, and anybody can join the success community to help us listing the configuration tasks that can’t be deployed via Change Set. Manual tasks are not only a burden but also a risk of misconfiguration in Production. When done with this list, we’ll share it with Salesforce.

When you first got involved in Community?

As I said, I first got involved in 2005, but actually started to put my weight on it ten years later! That was the time when I repurposed my Cloud Computing blog to focus on Salesforce (https://saas-components.com), I co-organised the Developer Group in Reading in the UK (https://www.meetup.com/Thames-Valley-Salesforce-Developers/) and started public speaking gigs (https://www.slideshare.net/fcathala).

I have to say that I was inspired in multiple ways by some of the community champions that I consider today as my roles models: Keir Bowden aka Bob Buzzard, Mike Gerhold, Wes Nolte, Jeff Douglas and Steve Molis aka SteveMo.

What do you find most challenging after becoming MVP?

Things are not more challenging after becoming an MVP. In the opposite, I’d say they’re getting easier since doors tend to open quicker. It’s just that you get more requests for help of all sorts, AppExchange reviews and so on. It’s fine since MVPs are a helpful bunch by definition, but you need to manage your time and avoid spreading yourself too thin.

What can Community Expect from their MVP?

I’m preparing a presentation for India Dreamin held in Noida on Saturday, September the 30th (http://www.indiadreamin.in/). I also have a new interest in WIT and equality in the workplace. I was lucky to have a great clarification of the topic by Louise Lockie at Dreamforce 16 and am now raring to help one way or the other. I’m researching what should that way be…

Your experience at Dreamforce 2016?

Dreamforce 2016 was my third Dreamforce and I have to say that this year I finally felt “prepared”, much more so than the first two years. I had a solid plan going into it. I had spent time creating a schedule that wasn’t too overwhelming but would keep me on track and also allowed for down time to meet people- because meeting people is one of the BEST things about Dreamforce!

Funniest moment of Dreamforce 2016?

I don’t know that I have a funniest moment. However, as I think back at the whirlwind of activities that week, one thing that always makes me smile is that I got to attend Dreamforce with several people that were there for the first time. Seeing the look of “awe” on their face and excitement in their voice the entire week was great! Until Friday, then it was a look of pure exhaustion. J But it reminds me of how lucky we all are to be on this path, to be able to share experiences like this and to be able to meet so many incredible people that share the same passion. Cant’ wait for #DF17!

Ohad Idan

Salesforce MVP | 5x Salesforce Certified | NYC Developer User group Leader

 

q9uYBYnw_400x400

 

How did you start your Journey?

My name is Ohad Idan and I’ve been a Salesforce aficionado since late 2010.

I started, like so many others, as an accidental administrator when my boss handed me off the keys to the company’s Salesforce Org without neither him or I knowing what it is.

I quickly realized the potential to impact our company and started to teach myself how to get the most out of the platform, and when I reached the end of the declarative capabilities, started to teach myself to code.

I was able to single-handedly drive tremendous business impact by using Salesforce to automate so many of the company’s manual processes – which is a testament to the power this platform holds.

The local Salesforce community in NYC was a phenomenal tool for me to network, learn, and interact with others, and a few years ago I joined the leadership of the NYC Developer User Group.

How do you feel?

I was surprised and extremely honored to be named an MVP. I’ve always enjoyed contributing to the local and online community. The sense of satisfaction I get by helping people reach new places in their journey is extremely fulfilling, so I never really expected to get anything beyond that.

To me, being an MVP doesn’t mean that I’m in any way special, since there are so many others in the community who contribute their knowledge and time. To me it’s just a spotlight that allows members of the community to identify some users who have helped others in the past and that they should feel comfortable enough reaching out to with questions.

What have you been working on?

The timing of my MVP nomination was crazy, I received my MVP in March, and just a month later, in April of 2017, I started my own consulting company. I’ve been working on creating relationships with new customers, and starting to build what I hope will one day become a prominent Salesforce consulting company. It’s been a wild ride already!

I am planning to start cranking up more certifications (I only have 5) in the next few months.

 

When you first got involved in Community?

I got involved in the NYC Community a few months after I started administrating Salesforce. I used to come to the morning sessions that the NYC User Group had. I honestly had no idea what I would learn there when I first started coming, and I knew no-one. It didn’t take long to start making friends, though.

I just wanted to learn what others are doing, how they are doing it… figure out what I don’t know that I don’t know. The community meetups were a great place for that. There was always someone sharing something they’ve done, and I always came back to work with a bunch of new ideas to try out.

On the User-group side, Cheryl Feldman has always been an unstoppable force, kind, friendly, and happy to help in any way she can. On the Developer User Group, Luke Cushanick has been guiding me and helping me grow as a developer and as a member (and later a leader) of the community.

What do you find most challenging after becoming MVP?

I’m not really sure how to answer this question… My biggest challenge has been keeping up with all of my existing commitments while working on creating and establishing my new business.

It’s easy for me to contribute when I’m at a UG Meetup or any Salesforce event, but it’s been harder to find time to contribute online.

What can Community Expect from their MVP?

The local community is where I shine. I love the face-to-face conversations, getting to know local Salesforce users or developers, talking to them about their journey, and helping when asked. I will always be at any UG Meetup that I can join, and will always continue to contribute.

Over the next couple of months I plan to redirect a lot of my energy back to my blog. It was a lot of fun when I started it, but once I started my business it was hard to keep writing – I want to get back to that.

Your experience at Dreamforce 2016?

Dreamforce 2016 was amazing! It was the first year where the whole campus adopted our Trailhead theme, and it was magical to see our new mascots Codey, Astro, and Einstein walking around the conference. I was blown away by all the great content our #AwesomeAdmin community shared on the Admin Theater stage and in the Admin Track breakout sessions. My personal highlight was being able to demo some fantastic new Admin features on stage during the Admin Keynote to thousands of my favorite Salesforce Admin friends.

Funniest moment of Dreamforce 2016?

 

Dreamforce 2016Gillian Bruce

 

Dreamforce has a ton of great content, but there is also a little room for fun and celebration. One of the funniest moments was watching the Lip Sync Battle on the Admin Theater stage. I had no idea how much the contestants were going to get into it, but WOW their costumes and performances had me cheering and laughing for a solid hour! I mean, Amy Oplinger’s MJ routine was as killer as her outfit – some might even call it thrilling. And the mysterious appearance by TSwift / Tay-Tay / Swifty was shocking! Who knew Shannon Hale had such a famous alter ego. Dreamforce never disappoints. I’m already excited for Dreamforce 2017!

Justin Barss

Salesforce MVP | Non-Profit Technologist Cheerleader & Coach

 

Justin

 

 

How did you start your Journey?

The experience of “community” has been the water I have swum in since I graduated college and started my first internship at an urban ministry – living in the cross-cultural community providing services to youth and families in Wilmington, Delaware.  Through several community connections, this organization began using Salesforce in 2010 and I was offered the job to import our Donor and Volunteer information and grow it there.  It was one-quarter of my job at the time (like most nonprofit staff) but I loved the idea of Salesforce and building my own ways to measure and track important data.  Since then, I’ve helped build apps for legal tech, have done my own independent consulting, and finally, have found a home at Now IT Matters for the last four years.  I have grown incredibly through my positions there and love the constant challenge of finding ways to help clients and nonprofits leverage Salesforce to fulfill their mission.

How do you feel?

I was honestly surprised when I received the email about the MVP award.  I had tried to get it the year prior and “focused” on it as a career goal, but when I was promoted to Director of Sales and needed to learn a brand new skill set to help clients, then the idea of “becoming MVP” didn’t seem that important anymore.  At the time, I was traveling to Nonprofit Success Pack sprints, attending & helping at User Groups, however, I could, and meeting folks in person to talk through Salesforce.  I was honored and flattered and have found a brand new group of “co-conspirators” to try new ideas and build up our #Ohana.

What have you been working on?

I’ve had an incredible time developing more friendships with the awesome Women in Technology group in Washington, D.C.   Getting to know MVP Toya Gatewood, MVP Rebecca Lammers, and the User Group Leaders Rakia Finley & LeAndria Streeter has been a privilege and an honor.  As a husband, a father to two daughters, and a peer to some incredible female leaders in technology – I have a lot to learn in how to continue to support women’s voice in our community.

Apart from that, I’m stirring up some “Trailhead oriented” ideas after seeing how many resources are available to lower the learning curve for Users, Admins, and Devs to learn Salesforce more effectively.

When you first got involved in Community?

When I first heard about User Groups from attending a local World Tour, I immediately signed up for the Philadelphia Nonprofit User Group in 2011 or so.  The things I learned there from Dean Graham and a number of the Nonprofit Admins transformed the way I looked at solving Salesforce problems and coming up with solutions.  It also got me hooked – once I started learning better ways to do Salesforce through real people at User Groups and in person, I always wanted to meet with others to compare ideas and learn from each other.

What do you find most challenging after becoming MVP?

It feels a bit like the title and the MVP community offers you access to an entire network of “Ohana capacity” that you can develop your own “MVP path” in how you want to create value and drive people towards learning and development.  I’m looking to choose wisely and invest well with the relationships and people I know.  It’s hard drinking from the “firehose” when it comes to learning Salesforce, but it’s even more exciting to consider how “little old me” from small town Virginia can help folks throughout the Power of Us Hub and the Success Community with their learning.

What can Community Expect from their MVP?

I’ve begun to focus on select meetings with nonprofit Admins when I travel – looking to connect personally, hear their vision for Salesforce at their nonprofit, and help develop their abilities their abilities to do “more good, better” with their CRM and their data.  This has been my “community experience” over the years – especially at Now IT Matters – and I’m looking to have an exponential impact on Salesforce’s 1-1-1 model through investing well in the future.

Your experience at Dreamforce 2016?

Dreamforce 2016 was a big breakthrough year because of the focus on our amazing community.  Among many other things, we rallied over 150+ community viewing parties and had a few highlighted on stage at the keynote kick-off.  One very proud moment was when Marc Benioff himself talked about how the community has changed his perspective and he highlighted and welcomed User Groups.  This was huge for our community because it’s such an amazing program that’s really hit full steam in the last few years.  Big thanks to Holly Firestone who really spearheaded this momentum and was instrumental in getting Marc’s awareness of this special Program.  We also had community members present everywhere around Dreamforce – including posters, booth staffing, breakout session speakers, hands-on training instructors, volunteering, and the list goes on and on.  Some other incredible highlights of Dreamforce ’16 but two more to focus on was 1) the first ever joint User Group and MVP appreciation party dubbed the “Awesome People Party”- including great food, great networking, great demo jam and great swag!  And 2) Steve Molis was given 2 VIP tickets by our Vice Chairman, President, and COO, Keith Block for his incredible contributions to our Community and he picked little ole me to join him!  What is so special about this (beyond just VIP U2 tickets alone!) is that all other Salesforce employees were there hosting their customers and it was the other way around for me.  This is so representative of our amazing Community #Ohana.

 

Funniest moment of Dreamforce 2016?

 

Erica Kuhl1

 

By far my funniest moment at Dreamforce ’16 was a 250+ person sing along (led by LT Smooth) to “Harvest Moon” while we waited for Marc Benioff to join the stage and kick off a Community Q&A.  I was sitting next to Tony Prophet, who I had met moments before, and the next thing you know we are belting out Harvest Moon together.  Definitely, something I will never forget.

I can’t imagine how I’ll top my Dreamforce ’16 experience because it definitely goes down in history as a very memorable one….and I’ve been to EVERY SINGLE Dreamforce so that’s saying a lot!
