The Salesforce World Tour Toronto Call for Presentations is Open


The Salesforce World Tour is coming to Toronto on April 9, 2020. Get ready for a full day of innovation and inspiration at the Enercare Centre. If you haven’t already, register here and you’ll get more info about the day-long event.

We want YOU to present at Salesforce World Tour Toronto!

The World Tour will have a shared Admin/Developer theater where you can learn and connect with fellow #AwesomeAdmins. And, we want YOU to be a big part of it by presenting in the theater. The theater is where #AwesomeAdmins deliver and absorb engaging, actionable, and memorable content that helps them become awesome Salesforce Admins, drive success for their business and elevate their careers.

The Call for Presentations for Toronto will remain open until March 12, 2020

We will notify you if you are speaking no later than March 16, 2020. For those of you who are new to speaking or have never attended a World Tour Event before, never fear – as long as you are passionate and knowledgeable you’ll be fine! We love first-time speakers and highly encourage you to take the Public Speaking Skills module on Trailhead.

 Theater sessions will be 20-minute blocks. This format means there isn’t availability for extended discussion time, however, speakers can meet with audience members after their presentation.

The session is held in the shared Admin/Dev Theater with a podium and microphone. World Tour attendees are free to walk up and listen or take a seat in the audience. Theater sessions often center around topics that are easy for Salesforce Admins to engage in. A strong format has actionable items for Admins to learn in a short time period.

What Makes a Good Proposal?

Session Title: It should be something that will be of interest to Salesforce Admins, and you should word it in a way that makes it very clear to those attendees what you’ll be covering (in no more than 80 characters).

Session Abstract: Write a short paragraph (in no more than 2000 characters) to quickly tell us what you’re going to talk about. Be creative! Don’t just explain your slide deck, but share what the takeaway will be for the audience: What are you going to build/demo? What are your key takeaways? Remember this will eventually be published on the website and will be the public-facing view of what your talk is about. It should be compelling and clearly communicate what attendees can expect to learn from your session.

If you have more than one topic you’d like to propose, please complete the submission process for each topic.

Suggested Topics

We’re looking for interesting, engaging sessions that provide actionable content that helps Salesforce Admins build their skills, elevate their careers, and deliver innovative technology solutions for their companies.

Keep these suggestions in mind:

  • Speak on a topic you are passionate about. This could be a specific feature, an unique solution to a common problem, or a strategy for advancing your career. The first step in getting your audience to love listening to you is for you to love what you are saying.
  • Strongly consider the takeaways your audience will gain by listening to your talk. What’s in it for them? Highlight this in your abstract.
  • Have you gained experience in new features or products that were only recently released? Many Salesforce Admins may not have had the chance to learn about it yet and you may be in a position to give them unique insight.
  • Do you have a clever solution that might apply to a wide audience? Answer that carefully, because a solution you provided for a specific problem might not be generic enough to have mass appeal.

This list is by no means exhaustive – if you have a great session proposal that we haven’t mentioned, we’d love to hear about it! Note that this call for presentations is aimed at sessions focusing on tools, processes, and technologies that are by Admins, for Admins – so show us the how, dive into Setup!


What to Expect

Your session proposal will be reviewed by our core team, and selections will be made to ensure we have the best mix of valuable content for Admins of all experience levels. You will get an email from us no later than March 16, 2020 letting you know the status of your submission.

If your session is accepted, you will be connected with a member of the Admin Relations team who will guide you through the preparation process that includes feedback on your content and practice sessions.

Please note that Salesforce does not provide travel to the event or lodging. Only one speaker per session. Maximum of two submissions please. Ok, now you’re ready. Submit your idea! 👇
