Sydney Salesforce User Group – Christmas Drinks

November 12, 2015 Uncategorized

Talentforce sent out 10 requests for sponsors for the event and within 2 hours each and every organisation that were asked came back and wanted to support the user group, outstanding. Within an hour of sending the invite out half of the 130 attendees had already registered. Eight Thousand people attended Dreamforce in 2006 compared to 135 thousand in 2013. In 2012 Talentforce called on the emerging salesforce community in Sydney to share a coffee. It all started with 4 of us sitting drinking coffee like trainspotters talking about salesforce. The San Fran User group has 380 members , London, 400 so for Sydney to boast 430 people in the group it is clear we have a faster growth rate than Dreamforce itself. Not to mention the fastest growing group globally.

The past years events were showcased and included.

  • CeBit – A night with the declarative platform
  • Force Innovation Morning
  • Dreamforce – Dreamforce in an hour
  • Speed Date with the AppExchange
  • Salesforce implementation best practice
  • A guide to a career in Salesforce
  • We became the formal SSUG and joined the Success Community

Kevin Akermanis from Salesforce.com dropped by to give the group a run down of the new Salesforce1 app and showcased Docusign’s new mobile application built on Force.com/SF1.

Thanks to all our sponsors for the evening.
