By, Marcelle Braithwaite. Salesforce Consultant at CloudShift.
On the very sunny (yay!) 21st & 22nd June, the CloudShift team headed down to the annual Salesforce Partner Regatta in Portsmouth, Hampshire. It’s a fantastic couple of days that really brings together the Partner community and recognises the excellence amongst implementation partners and ISV’s in both the UK and Ireland.
With a passionate Salesforce community together in one place, it’s always an action packed two days!
Day one saw the teams heading out for some early morning sailing drills. This was crucial preparation for the races that lay ahead! We quickly learnt that teamwork & communication was pretty key if we wanted a smooth trip. Luckily, with the experience we’ve had in delivering projects together, we had this down to a tee. The sailing language on the other hand? That was a very different story!
As the sun shone down we battled through the waves in what was a very close race! Everyone really gave it their all and got well and truly into the competitive spirit!
Once the final boats had passed the finish line, we gathered as a group and settled down for an evening of entertainment. This gave us a great chance to unwind and share our experiences on dry land with the wider community. Every boat had a different tale and a different tip for next time! It’s always a pleasure to get together with the wider community and hear about the amazing things everyone has been up to.
As a celebration of the Salesforce Partner Community achievements and progress, a Salesforce Partner Award ceremony was held. We were treated to a beautiful array of food and drinks, and a live band who really knew how to get the party started! To top the evening off, CloudShift won the Salesforce Rising Star 2017 award. The team were absolutely delighted that the hard work and customer success achieved over the last year had been recognised by Salesforce. We had an incredible couple of days and came back ready and raring to get back to business.
