“Everyday is Community Day” to quote Dave Hendrickson, our selfie-taking Master of Ceremonies, as we kicked off Community Day 2015 in San Francisco. And that’s what it feels like when you return from an energizing day with over 500 members of our community.
It’s been a little over a week since the event, and many of us went on to take part in Dreamforce, but I don’t want to forget to say thank you to so many who help make us Better Together:
Thank you to our customers; you are the reason we come to work every day and we appreciate the time you spent with us. Your energy and enthusiasm, as well as your feedback and critique, will continue to drive us.
Thank you to our sponsors; Avalara, CLD Partners, HRMS Solutions, Icon Cloud Consulting, Big Bang ERP, Nexstara, TOP Step Consulting, and NTT Data for helping make the day possible and helping our customers be more successful.
Thank you to our keynote speakers; In case you missed it, Jeremy Roche, our CEO, delivered an inspiring look at the future of business in a service-based economy and how customers can accelerate their success.
One great example of our theme of Better Together is FinancialForce and Salesforce. Mike Rosenbaum, EVP & GM of Sales Cloud at Salesforce, joined Jeremy for a fireside chat to introduce Lightning and talk about the value of our partnership.
Thank you to our 360 Customer Excellence Award Winners; you inspire us all with your outstanding achievements. We recognized eight winners this year with help from Mike, Jeremy. Congratulations to all.
Thank you to our guest speaker, Robyn Benincasa; who takes pride in inspiring people to do insane things. Linking the journey of a World Champion Adventure Racer with leading teams in a corporate environment may sound like a stretch, but you showed us how we can build world class teams against the toughest of odds.
Thank you to our Product Leadership Team; who rounded out the morning session with a closer look at what’s coming from Salesforce with Lightning and Wave analytics, as well as our own product roadmaps for 2016.
Thank you to our Breakout Session Presenters: Wow, 15 breakout sessions, plus hands-on training for Action Views in the afternoon. So much great content and so little time, it was tough to choose. Maybe we need to make Community Day more than just a day in the future, hmm? A special thank you to the customers who took time away from their own learning to present in some of the sessions.
We wrapped up a great day with a great evening at Infusion Lounge for our after show party. Thanks again to everyone who helped make Community Day 2015 happen.
Make sure to visit the FinancialForce Community portal and keep the conversations going, because every day is Community Day!
