And in a blink of an eye we are already in Fall! Guess that means it’s time for me to fall back into my corn-y jokes, such as don’t worry none of the events this week will leaf you down…. Too much? This is why I’m an event coordinator and not a comedian. So sit back, open up your calendars, and let’s get planning!
First up is a follow up to an event I wrote about a few months ago. Salesforce Presents: The Top 4 Small and Medium Business Trends of 2021 is on Tuesday, September 28 at 11am (PST) and only gives the top 4 trends, rather than just the “top” trends. After surveying small and medium business owners and leaders, Salesforce wants to share this research and how you can use this information to grow your business. Obviously this data provided will be skewed towards the trends of operating in a pandemic, but seeing that we aren’t quite back to normal yet, it will still be useful!
School has been back in session for a few weeks now and yet schools are still struggling on how to support their students during this time. In K-12 Tools for Prioritizing Student Wellness you will hear how one school district has been running their wellness program and how other districts can model their programs after it. These strategies improve mental, emotional and social health by conducting 1:1’s, group sessions, classroom SEL presentations and events. Viewers will also learn how to document these strategies and how technology can help these programs thrive! This event is on Wednesday, September 29 at 11am (PST).
Our last event of the week is actually a Great Place to Work event occurring virtually on LinkedIn. On Friday, October 1 at 9:30am (PST), Better Together: Equality of Representation, Great Place to Work will be joined by World Wide Technology and NPower for “an important conversation on equality of representation.” This event is great for HR and oher hiring leaders at your company or even for anyone who is curious about learning more on this topic.
Last week the United Nations Global Compact had their biggest event of the year, Uniting Business Live, sharing dialogues, local knowledge, implementation strategies, and partnership and leadership examples, with the likes of Chief Executives, Heads of State and Government, Heads of UN agencies, and many more! The sessions addressed the state of the world, how to drive business ambitions on the SDG’s, and highlighted cooperative and actionable solutions.
Dreamforce ’21 took place both in-person and virtually around the world with tons of special guests, and the sessions had a slight difference for those attending in-person versus those watching from home. If you missed any of the recorded sessions, head over to Salesforce+ where you can watch them! Finally, the Salesforce community-led event, Oaktown Dreamin’, occurred virtually, with the likes of Sarah Franklin and Leah McGowen-Hare as guest speakers. Tweet us @mkpartners and let us know what your favorite event was!
Also, make sure to let us know if you think there are any events worth mentioning and what event you are excited about this upcoming week. And, as always, we will see you in the cloud!
