Earning the opportunity to speak in the Admin Track at Dreamforce is almost up there with receiving the illustrious Golden Hoodie. We received 730 submissions to present this year, from which we have chosen 120 fantastic sessions each with original content to share with you. Take a look at how we picked sessions and review our cheat sheet for a list of current Admin Track sessions and speakers.
Dreamforce is fast approaching and we have a lot of fun in store for #AwesomeAdmins. In the meantime, we want to shine the light on our amazing speakers with some fun facts we have collected!
The Admin Track has 368 years of experience!
Our speakers range from first-year newbies to those with 14 years of experience with Salesforce! Between them, they have more than 1000 years of experience combined!
Our Admin Track presenters have had very diverse careers
Before becoming Salesforce Administrators, the Admin Track presenters held a variety of different jobs. Quite a few were project/program managers, analysts, and business coordinators. Some were developers and support professionals that made the switch to Salesforce Admin. But the standout for us was a Platoon Leader – US Army Signal Corps!
These Admins also share unique career paths. Some started in tech, but the majority have a wide array of early skills ranging from retail, food service & babysitting but again there are two standouts: Frozen custard dessert artist and Engraver (Tombstones)!
