As I mentioned last week we are on a conference roll and this week is no exception! Starting bright and early on a Monday and going until late Saturday night, we won’t have time for any rest days. So sit back, open up your calendars, and let’s get planning!
Starting the week off strong on Monday, November 8th at 9am (EST), the UN Global Compact is hosting Integrate 2021! This 3 day virtual conference will be focusing on the world of finance and will provide businesses “with the tools and insights to know how to adapt, operationalize and execute on a global shift.” Guest speakers and presenters will consist of large names in the finance sector, including Robert Jackson and Scott Mather. This is a partner conference, so you will already need to participate in the UN SD goals in order to attend.
If you haven’t received at least a dozen emails for this next event, then you must be living under a rock. The long awaited Tableau Conference is occurring virtually, starting on Tuesday, November 9th and will also be 3 days long! There will be over a dozen speakers, including multiple Olympic athletes and Beck as their musical guest (*can’t help but to start singing “In the time of chimpanzees, I was a monkey.”)!! There will be over 100 episodes and you will be able to use Slack to engage, chat and interact with other participants and in workshop activities. The conference will be presented in English, and translated in over 8 languages, including American Sign Language. The conference begins at 9am (PST) and ends at 3pm (PST) every day. If you are located in Europe or Asia Pacific the dates and time will be different, so check out their website for that information.
We have another UN Global Compact conference this week, taking place on Wednesday, November 10th. The Business Ambition for Climate Action will be virtual and will start at 1:45am (PST)…. so half of us will be missing this one sadly. However, if you can attend, the conference will be live worldwide and will have over 15 sessions, with over 2 dozen speakers, so this event will consume your whole day! All of these sessions will focus on showcasing concrete actions for a net-zero economy and strategies to unlock climate change finance.
Also on the 10th, at 11am (PST), we get to celebrate a little with Salesforce Days — Partner Ecosystem Celebration! This is the final day in the Salesforce Days AMER program. This virtual event may be a celebration, but viewers will also get a sneak peek as to what to expect for next year! Additionally, they will be announcing the winners of the competitions that have been occurring and will feature executive Salesforce speakers during this celebration.
We end our busy week with the SEA (Southeast Asia) Dreamin’ 2021! Taking place on November 12th and 13th this conference will be virtual in order to serve a much larger audience. It will feature over 2 dozen speakers, 2 keynote speeches, multiple breakout sessions, and end with a demo jam. This is a great opportunity to network with other Trailblazers, Partners and customers in the Salesforce ecosystem!
Last week we started with Expanding the “G” in ESG to expand conversations on conventional governance, sustainable governance, and global governance. We got a preview of 4 AppExchange Apps to help schools and students with several problems in Enhance the Student Experience with Powerful AppExchange Apps. Then in the 3 Secrets to Successful Sales Coaching & Enablement viewers learned how to teach sales teams how to attract and retain top talent, how to ramp up reps quickly, provide meaningful insights and coaching, and scale best practices. We ended the week with the 2nd Annual CX Impact Summit. How did you like that semi-new event?
