London’s Calling Speakers

Cloud Galacticos is proud to be one of only two Platinum Sponsors for this year’s London’s Calling event (alongside OwnBackUp). We’re also proud to have two of our team members as London’s Calling speakers.

London’s Calling is one of our favourite Salesforce related events. It’s also Europe’s largest community-led event for Salesforce professionals. And this year, it’s back as an in-person event in June.

 

London’s Calling Speaker: Paul Battisson 

London's Calling Speaker Paul BattissonOur COO Paul Battisson, will be one of two from Cloud Galacticos who will be a London’s Calling speaker. His session will be ‘Getting the Job – Tips and Tricks for Salesforce Interviews and Careers’.

My hope for the session is to help people who are looking for a new job or to improve their career with some practical tips about growing your career and nailing job interviews.”

This is my 5th time speaking at London’s Calling and it’s always such a great event. It will also be one of my first in-person events for a while so I’m excited to reconnect with the community face to face again after too long.

I’ll be spending a fair bit of time at the Cloud Galacticos Platinum Sponsor booth, so come by and say hi!

Paul will also be speaking at DreamOle, in Madrid, in April.

 

London’s Calling Speaker: Mark Jones

Mark Jones Cloud GalacticosThe second person from our team speaking at London’s Calling will be Mark Jones, a Salesforce Consultant. His session will be ‘Skills for Success: The Skills Every Admin Needs to Succeed in Their Career’.

This session will provide you with a high-level overview of the skills needed to succeed in the ecosystem as a Salesforce Administrator. You’ll get the chance to hear a little bit about each of the skills identified by Salesforce and be signposted to some really good resources related to each skill. If you’re a Salesforce Admin, or simply just want to understand the role a little more, then this session is for you.

I’m really looking forward to speaking at London’s Calling this year. This is one of the events that I’ve had on my wish list of events to speak at for a few years now. It’s great to finally be able to do it. I feel this topic is one that is so important to a very large portion of the ecosystem, so I’m really looking forward to being able to talk on this subject.”

Mark also spoke at Cactusforce in January. You can watch it again here. Mark will be heading to Prague in May to speak at CzechDreamin’ (same session as London’s Calling).

Phil's Salesforce Tip of the Week

Sandbox Emails – Phil’s Salesforce Tip of the Week #491

Welcome to my Salesforce Tip of the Week #491

 

Tip 1 – Sandbox Emails

Sandbox Emails

Many people have been receiving ‘Sandbox expiration’ emails this week, and are wondering why (or why now).

There will be regular clean ups of inactive sandboxes… inactive means if it hasn’t been accessed for 180 days.

See more details here.

 

 

 

 

Tip 2 – Wellness Retreat

Take a look at this article from The Wall Street Journal which finally gives us some details about the ‘Salesforce Ranch’.

The software giant signed a multiyear booking agreement for a 75-acre retreat set among the redwoods in Scotts Valley, Calif., to create an employee work-and-wellness center for its nearly 70,000-person staff.

Salesforce plans to use the property 70 miles south of San Francisco to onboard new hires and conduct off-site team meetings for social bonding and leadership training, said Brent Hyder, chief people officer.

I’m sure my invitation is in the post!

 

Tip 3 – Platinum!!

After sponsoring London’s Calling every year since its inception, we are very proud to step up this year as Platinum Sponsors!

Phil's Salesforce Tip of the Week

Optimizer App and London’s Calling – Phil’s Salesforce Tip of the Week #443

Tip 1 – Optimizer

A great way to review your Org, and get suggestions on areas for improvement, is by using Salesforce Optimizer. The report has been around for a while, but soon to be disabled in June as the App is more interactive. Nothing to instal, just search ‘Optimizer’ in Setup and click ‘Open Optimizer’ to reveal a list of suggestions and estimates. Turns out I have lots of unused Fields, and Reports I have never run!

From the Salesforce Help docs…

The Salesforce Optimizer app analyzes more features than the existing PDF report and in a more interactive and actionable format. Quickly identify issues that require immediate attention by using the sortable list view. Read through expert Salesforce recommendations to plan next steps.

Consider running Salesforce Optimizer as part of your monthly maintenance, before installing a new app, before each Salesforce release, or at least once a quarter. You can run the report as often as you want to keep on top of maintenance activities. You can set the App to run automatically on a monthly basis.

Tip 2 – London’s Calling you Now! 

LC2021 is just kicking off. We are happy to be sponsoring today, as we have for every LC event! There is always great content, so it is THE best UK Salesforce event in my opinion. I am looking forward to:

Lawrence Newcombe’s session ‘Ready, Set, Architect’ at 10.45am,

Leslie Gestautas’s session on migrating data at 3.30pm,

and of course our very own Paul Battisson’s session ‘Improving the performance of your Apex Code‘ at 2.45pm.

I am sure the sessions will be available on YouTube in the coming weeks, but it is always good to block out a chunk of learning time all in one go at an event like this.

Keep an eye out for our new animated video & tell me what you think!
