Welcoming you back from the summer holidays is our September Salesforce Admin Group event! As usual, we've got an afternoon of fantastic speakers and the opportunity to network with like-minded Salesforce Professionals.
This month, we'll have our first-ever keynote from Dave Thomson of Salesforce — who was so brilliant when we saw him at the Call & Contact Centre Expo, he received a standing ovation!
We've also got the lovely Emma Keeling from InterContinental Hotels coming to share their Salesforce user story. Emma is going to present her journey on Salesforce and how IHG use the platform, complete with a demo of their Salesforce Org.
Our third talk of the day is still to be confirmed, but we can reveal it is an awesome ISV. Paul will be announcing more about who this exciting speaker is later on. For now, check out the agenda below and sign up for your free spot!
