Dreamforce National Park

Highlights from Dreamforce 2017

The whirlwind week of Dreamforce has finally come to an end. As exhilarating as it’s been to see and do much of what the conference had to offer, it’s nice to be back to the usual craziness of startup life.

For the team here at Conversica, this has been an especially memorable experience. A little overwhelming and hectic, but also incredibly fun. 

Here are the highlights from this year’s Dreamforce:

Winning the Mega Demo Jam

Not surprisingly, taking home the win at Mega Demo Jam was the biggest highlight of the conference. The Demo Jam trophy already sits proudly in our award showcase.

According to Carl Landers, CMO at Conversica, “The Demo Jam was tough—we faced stiff competition and prevailed in the semi-finals and then really had to bring our ‘A’ game for the final Mega round. Every competitor’s product was a clear winner, so we are especially honored to take home the trophy.”

Presenting at the Customer Success Expo 

Gary Gerber, Head of Product Marketing at Conversica, gave a great presentation on “How AI will transform your leads into golden opportunities.” Even though delivering the bad news that businesses fail at executing all 4 P’s of sales effectiveness (persistence, performance, promptness, and personalization) was not easy, Gary still managed to engage and delight the audience. Perhaps it was because he followed up the bad news with the good — that conversational AI can find the hidden gems in your leads. But I think it was his Indiana Jones-themed slides and matching outfit that really made this presentation one of the best.


Connecting with people at Dreamforce

The chance to connect with customers old and new, meet colleagues you work with but have never seen, and get in-person training on the latest technology that Salesforce and its partners have to offer — for me personally, this was the best part of Dreamforce. At the end of the day, this conference is all about bringing people in the Salesforce community together, and the reason why we endure the madness of squeezing into a city that’s only 7×7 miles.
