This lucky fan is swimming with a shark at Dreamforce 2014
If you had the chance, what would you ask Robert Herjavec, best-selling author, dynamic IT entrepreneur and star of ABC’s Shark Tank? Hundreds of you responded to our Swim with a Shark meet-and-greet with your dream questions for Robert, and we’re lucky enough to get to see them. Was there ever a roadblock in your career where you questioned whether you were in the right profession or if you were going to achieve your goals? If so, how did you persevere? What is the key to sustaining the energy behind an idea once the hard work begins? How do you measure the success potential of early stage companies if they are not generating any revenue? What is the key to being successful when an organization is undergoing major transformation initiatives while remaining “open for business?” All of your questions were inspiring and we wish we could sit Robert down to answer them all. However, there could only be one winner in our Swim with a Shark meet-and-greet, and his name is Peter Zovath, Service Operations Manager at Spredfast, Inc., a social marketing platform based in Austin, Texas. Spredfast, Inc. serves over 600 customers, including all five major broadcast networks, helping them manage, monitor and measure their social media programs in the United States and internationally. Peter had a great question as well, asking “How do you recognize when you should take an idea and turn it into a viable business?” We are very excited to give him the chance to ask Robert in person. If you’re interested in visiting us during Dreamforce, visit us next week at booth N1811 or at ERPcentral, FinancialForce.com headquarters all week long.
