Mark Your Calendars: Best Upcoming Events August 17, 2020 — August 21, 2020

Friday, August 14, 2020

Don’t worry y’all, this week I’m going to focus on events again. Hopefully I didn’t leave you hanging, having to scour Salesforce yourself looking for events. This week may have no rhyme or rhythm to it, but I will say that it looks like events are picking up again! So sit back, open up your calendar and let’s get planning!

Tuesday, August 18

Kicking off the week we have a Journey Builder event. This isn’t the only Journey Builder event either so you have options. The Journey Builder Basics: Getting Started with Journey Builder is on part 2 this week and is taking place on Tuesday, August 18th. It starts early at 7am (PST) and is part of a series. During this session you will learn about Salesforce Cross Cloud, Path Optimizer, Decision Splits, Personalization and Exit and Goals. Journey Builder is all about handling your customers’ journey whether it’s a straight shot or not.

Wednesday, August 19

Back in June the Denver, CO Developers Group hosted a mini-hack lightning session and is hosting one again! On Wednesday, August 19th at 5:30pm (MST) the Summer 20 Mini Hacks are going to focus on mini hacks from the Summer 20 releases. You will be broken up into groups to focus on one topic to then come back together to share with everyone else what each group did with these features. Additionally, one random attendee will receive a free voucher, so make sure to sign up!

Thursday, August 20

On Thursday, August 20th this is the other Journey Builder event! How Building Supporter Journeys Prepares You for End of Year Giving is an event for those in the nonprofit realm. Guest speaker Hao Lu will be telling audiences how to keep data clean and unified, set up engaging and personalized journeys and how to keep new and existing clients and get them to become continuous donors. End of Year Giving may seem far away, but it’s closer than you think. Get a head start this year by attending this event, which starts at 9am (PST). Additionally, if you need more information or help with End of Year Giving make sure to check out Salesforce Resource Center.

Additionally on Thursday, August 20th the Portland, OR B2B Marketers Group is hosting The Basics of Salesforce — Pardot Integration at 4pm (PST). They are covering a lot of topics such as troubleshooting issues between Salesforce and Pardot, how objects and fields sync between the two platforms, and using lists and reporting tools. As it says in the title, this is an event for those wanting to learn the basics about Pardot, so I would advise you to do the Trailheads on Pardot before or after this event to make sure you fully comprehend.

Friday, August 21

Rounding off the week we are going to the other side of the world, Thailand to be exact. Now this event is for those around the globe who want to know more about Salesforce. The ASEAN Trailblazer Connect Series is a 4 session webinar series informing individuals about the different types of Salesforce job opportunities. Additionally, people will hear from consulting companies about jobs they are hiring for. The event is equivalent to a career fair and is a great way to understand how the Salesforce ecosystem works. The session taking place on Thursday is in Thailand, but in the following weeks they will have ones in Vietnam, Singapore and Malaysia as well.


Last week I went on a bit of rant about missing events in person. However, I did talk about one event and that was MK Partners “*Let’s Build” Livestream *series on Youtube. It is a three part event, and if you missed the first one today, that’s okay, you can catch a replay here and tune in next week for episode two! Got ideas for what we should build next? Tweet us @mkpartners and let us know!

Also, make sure to let us know if you think there are any other events worth mentioning and what event you are most excited about this upcoming week.

And, as always, we will see you in the cloud.
