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).

 

Event Details

London’s Calling will be held at The Brewery, in London on Friday 10th June. It will be an action packed day full of great sessions from great speakers, Demo Jam, and Keynote guests. It’s also a great chance to catch up with the Salesforce Ohana. Don’t forget to buy your ticket here.

Phil's Salesforce Tip of the Week

Salesforce Events – Phil’s Salesforce Tip of the Week #489

Welcome to my Salesforce Tip of the Week #489

A Salesforce Events Special Edition!

 

Tip 1 – Am I Dreamin’

Salesforce Events

For our first Salesforce event…

In-person events are starting to open up again, and online events continue to rise in popularity.

So whether you plan to go to your local Community conference, or Zoom your way to greater Salesforce knowledge, keep an eye on the official Community Conference calendar to plan ahead.

 

 

Tip 2 – Call for Speakers

A great way to really immerse yourself into a Community event is to join the list of presenters.

Usually around 3-4 months before an event there is a ‘call for speakers/submissions’. It’s where you can write a brief abstract so the organisers can review it and plan the most suitable sessions.

The call has just been announced for Czech Dreamin, take a look here.

 

Tip 3 – FlowFest

If you love Flows and fancy getting involved in a hackathon style event, register for FlowFest here.

It will take place as a live stream on 23rd February.

 

 

Tip 4 – DevOps Dreamin’

Another event outside of the official Community Calendar is this two day DevOps specific event.

DevOps Dreamin’ is a 2-day event for developers, configurators, architects and anyone responsible for building on Salesforce

Take a look and register here.

 

Tip 5 – Rio Dreamin

And our final Salesforce event…

It is early days of planning, but follow this Twitter account to show your interest and support for what could be an amazing event in Brazil in 2023!
