Bret Taylor – Phil’s Salesforce Tip of the Week #480

Welcome to my Salesforce Tip of the Week #480


Tip 1 – New Role for Bret Taylor

Bret Taylor

As mentioned in the news this week, Bret Taylor has moved to the co-CEO role at Salesforce – a role vacant since Keith Block left 2 years ago. He has also just taken a role at Twitter! He is now Chairman of the Board, after the shuffle after CEO Jack Dorsey stepping down. Good luck and all the best to Bret Taylor. Busy busy!

Tip 3 – Review of 2021

Cloud Galacticos London Drinks Oct 2021

It’s fair to say it’s been an unusual year, for everyone! Here is our spin on seeing the positives where we can, and enjoying the chance to finally meet in person.

“Looking back it almost seems like a different world…Christmas 2020 was ‘cancelled’, the new year was still led by watching Joe Wicks and Rob Biddulph with the kids, we applauded the spirit of Sir Tom Moore, and we still had one lockdown to come.”
