Tip 1 – Free ‘Cloak of Adventure’ sweatshirt

My company is growing quickly, most new staff are VERY experienced Salesforce Consultants & Developers, but for any newbies I always recommend jumping straight on Trailhead! Emma Frost is my new Salesforce Project Manager, and already in just 1 month she is shouting about the joys of Trailhead:

“Looking for something to help keep you warm during these wintery months? Why not complete five Trailhead badges and earn yourself a limited edition sweatshirt! Or warm your heart by completing one badge and earning a coveted Compass of Wisdom badge. Ooh.
Badges must be completed by 31st January 2016.”
