It’s that time of year again — Dreamforce is a few weeks away, the agenda builder has finally gone live and attendees everywhere are figuring out what sessions to attend. In my opinion everyone could do a lot worse than attend my sessions — you could say they have the Bob Buzzard seal of approval :) Simply click the headings to sign up for the sessions in the agenda builder.
Tuesday, October 4, 11:00 AM — 11:40 AM, Moscone West 2000
Wednesday, October 5, 11:30 AM — 12:10 PM, Moscone West 2009
Are you just starting out with Salesforce or new to lightning Components? Join me as I walk you thought the steps I recently took to go from no code to developing my first Lightning Component with the guidance and support of a seasoned professional, Keir Bowden @bob_Buzzard. In this session we will describe the basic principles and framework and signpost you to activities you can go to develop your skills.
As you might realise from the abstract, I’m playing a supporting role to the main speaker, Kerry Townsend, in this session — the glamorous assistant if you will.
Thursday, October 6, 5:00 PM — 5:40 PM, Moscone West 2009
Have you ever been inspired by a life changing speaker? Or when you see your peers submitting talks for conferences, you feel like you don’t know from where to start? We want to empower you to begin your public speaking journey and give you the tools you need to succeed. Come and listen to the experts explain the importance of public speaking in career and personal growth. Learn the tips & tricks to master the art of storytelling and the steps to kick-start this journey.
This is a panel session where I’ll no doubt be talking about the success of the Salesforce Community Speaker Academy. My co-host from the academy, Jodi Wagner, is also appearing on the panel, so you’ll be able to experience first hand our legendary bantering/bickering dynamic!
Thursday, October 6, 11:00 AM — 12:00 PM, Moscone West Keynote Level 3
Apps have never been more critical in our lives and our work, and everything and everyone is connected. This app revolution has given rise to a global renaissance for developers. At the same time, our digital experiences are often disconnected and new apps frequently lag expectations. Join Srini Tallapragada, President, Technology at Salesforce, in this year’s Developer Keynote, to learn how to build apps faster, smarter and for the future, today.
Okay, this isn’t one of my sessions (although there’s still a couple of weeks to go, so there’s always the chance I’ll receive a call) but the developer keynote is something you don’t want to miss.
I’m also planning to host one of the Circles of Success round tables, but we’re still nailing down the logistics on that so stay tuned.
I’m better known in the Salesforce community as Bob Buzzard — Umpteen Certifications, including Technical Architect, 5 x MVP and CTO of BrightGen, a Platinum Cloud Alliance Partner in the United Kingdom.
