About this event

Meeting Wrap Up

Many thanks to Pip for taking the time to speak to us. Countries represented on today's call: NZ, Australia, USA, Canada, Ecuador, and community group leaders from around the world, representing community groups in Auckland, Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth, Canberra, Portland (Maine), Sacramento, Indianapolis, covering at least 12 other community groups!

Check out the photos below, Pip can be spotted in one with one of her cavoodles, Ollie.

Salesforce Auckland offices have reopened with two teams, Astro and Codey.

Marc Benioff is looking to New Zealand as Trailblazers for how the world is reopening.

Salesforce ANZ is definitely growing, and Pip is determined that roles will be distributed not just based in Sydney and Auckland (check job listing links below).

For the uninitiated, Pip and myself (Anna) are both from the same small city of Palmerston North, New Zealand

I asked her Foxton or Himitangi....
