So it’s the week after what has been dubbed the “Best Salesforce World Tour event yet” so I thought it would be good to share with you, my top tips for making the most of the day.

Breakfast and Keynotes
I spent the majority of the morning in the first round of Keynotes held by Salesforce’s own Polly Sumner, which comprised of the amazing success stories and customer journeys of the likes of Aston Martin, ABB and VAX (which showcased how lightning has improved Service cloud), as well as the inspiring success story of the STEMettes; an organisation who are making a huge impact in encouraging young women to pursue a career in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM).

Alongside the keynote speech there was also a broad range of breakout sessions and drop in zones allocated around the arena, which all featured presentations on different areas of Salesforce, details of which you can find here.

In the afternoon, the stand out keynote for me was delivered by Sir Chris Hoy on how speed and efficiency are the key to driving high performance within any organisation, it was amazing to hear about the psychology behind his success and how his varied approaches have defined his career.

So, here’s my quick 3 tips…

1. Ques, Ques everywhere

Now, at the risk of sounding stereo typically British, The ques for some booths were insane (and I’ve been to Disneyworld). 

The biggest heads up I could give to anyone looking to attend next year is, be prepared to que! Especially if you’re planning on visiting the Trailhead booth!! However, whilst it is pretty time consuming trying to get your paws on your very own Astro (just like Shaun Holmes did), it does present you with the perfect opportunity to get networking and meet some familiar faces from the Salesforce community. Just from waiting at the Trailhead booth alone, I’d say I (literally) bumped in to most of the people I was hoping to meet by waiting in line. 

2. Be Prepared!
With around 50 breakout sessions going on throughout the day it is important to make sure you don’t miss out on anything, so grab yourself an itinerary upon registration and make sure you’re in the right places at the right times. 

One of my personal favourites was held in the Admin theatre by Mat Morris, talking about different approaches and what you can do to become an admin hero!

3. Don’t worry, be happy 

The final (and biggest) tip I could give for anyone looking to attend is quite simply, enjoy it!

We’re fortunate enough to be a part of a huge community like no other where in that it’s social, informative and fun! So make sure you get stuck in and meet as many people as you can, you never know who you might just “bump” in to!
