Birmingham User Group - 23rd September

About this event

This is an excellent opportunity to network, learn, share best practices and hear from other Salesforce users from all areas of the industry. We are delighted to welcome the following guest speakers. 

Colin Morley & Harry Gooding, Hays - “The biggest risk to the Salesforce economy? It’s right in front of you”

A growing business, a growing market, more business than it and its partners can take on. So what challenges do Salesforce and those of us that work in its ecosystem face? What is going to slow down this phenomenal growth?

The biggest risk to the health of the Salesforce economy is the skills shortage. With the need for Salesforce skills growing every month and the implementations queued up, where and how are we going to be able to source the skills needed to support all these new instances?

Hear from Colin Morley and Harry Gooding about some new ideas on how we can, collectively, help support this market’s growth.
