Salesforce Partner Career Day - Key Takeaways
Yesterday our CEO, Alastair Murray, joined by other Salesforce ecosystem leaders, participated in a panel discussion at Salesforce Tower. The Salesforce Partners Career Day was designed to inspire and give practical advice to professionals in all stages of their career within the Salesforce ecosystem.
Alastair was joined by an amazing panel of speakers including Gemma Emmett – founder of Archladies, Stephanie Herrera – founder of Salesforce Saturdays, Heather Black – founder of Salesforce Supermums and Ben McCarthy from Empaua.
The event kicked off with updates from the Salesforce ecosystem and was then followed by the much-anticipated panel discussion where the speakers talked about their background and gave advice. So, what were the top key takeaways that our team gained from the event?
