I am pretty new to my role at Salesforce, as I have been here for a little over 6 months now. Since I started here I have been overly impressed with the power of this community of trailblazers. I had the opportunity to interact with the Ohana at Tahoe Dreamin’ this year and can’t wait to meet the contingent from the Midwest!!

I’m headed to Midwest Dreamin’ for my first time and I’m excited to attend such a big Dreamin’ event and to bring back ideas to my own local community. I’ll be co-presenting with my amazing colleague Heather King, Ph.D, about how nonprofits improve program evaluation from implementation to impact. We hope our presentation will spark interesting discussion among the nonprofit community. And, of course, I can’t wait to see so many of my Salesforce community friends in person!

Midwest Dreamin ’18 will be my fifth year on the planning committee and I’m excited to say this will be our best year yet! I’m especially excited for the several sessions focused on making your Salesforce solutions configurable and admin friendly. We’ve got you covered from formulas to Lightning Components and everything in between.

There have been many good memories at Midwest Dreamin’ events, ranging from a live band karaoke style office party, outdoor Navy Pier events. The amazing people in the Salesforce Community at large are what keeps me coming back for more. If you’ve never attended this event, one thing to look forward to is the incredibly setting. Midwest Dreamin’ is held at the iconic Palmer Hotel in Chicago, and their Lobby ceiling is something anyone attending should check out.

One of my favorite Midwest Dreamin’ memories is of Midwest Dreamin’ 2017, when I brought my wife and 9 month old (at the time) along. It was really fun to have them meet the people they hear so much about, and for the Salesforce ecosystem to meet them as well. They had so much fun, they plan to come back this year. Something I am looking forward to this year is connecting with people. The Salesforce Ecosystem is made up of a lot of people, many of whom you know by name, but have never had a chance to truly connect with. Events like Midwest Dreamin’ give me the chance to have conversations with people I see around the Salesforce Ecosystem and get to know them more on a personal level.

This will be my first time attending Midwest Dreamin’ and I can’t wait! I am especially looking forward to meeting some of our customers, as well as conversing with some of the other folks in the Salesforce community.
