What it means to Be a Salesforce Advocate

Salesforce Essentials Madrid 2016
Standard

It has been my pleasure to be part of DES 2016 Madrid and  part of Salesforce Essentials 2016 Madrid, and Barcelona – That was a fun part of May / June this year, and the best of it is not just being in front of an audience to talk about what you have achieved so far and how great the products you are reviewing are, but the best is the journey where you learn and achieve something to talk about.

But expertise does not come easy. Before and while achieved (or sort of), it is the time to learn, watch, listen and re-imagine what is possible. Yes, spend a huge amount of hours digging the Internet, being curious and thinking out of the box.

But what it really means for Salesforce to have advocates?

2016 Let’s crash it VSN!

Video

After 1.5 years at VSN I have the feeling and I am certain that we are ready to take one step forward, but before that we need our sales people aligned, and have a great 2016. Bonus track, see below the video to learn how align a marketing and a Sales Team.

I know marketing is doing great, analytics tell us so, and competitors as well, which is good. Competitors have started copying us which means that we are doing something right, really.

If you see your competitors are copying you, keep on this track – You are doing great!

Want to see how each of our sales directors see the future ahead of us? They might be eloquent and optimistic, but they are the ones that must be, the ones that chase and get out on the field to make our dear customers better thanks to our technology. Take a look at them! Continue reading

My first 30, 60 and 90 days at VSN

Strategy Forward Thinking
Standard

Every job starts with Day One (DO) and that day will define what you want to accomplish the following 90 and, hopefully, the following 365. Here I will explain how I approached my most recent first 90 days in the company that I currently work for. 239 days and counting.

In my recent experience at VSN I had the time to enjoy every of those first days with an overall outlook at how I can be aligned with the company goals and help the company grow.

Day One – Demystify myths

From day one try to better understand the company values, its philosophy, and how everyone works. You provably know already all what the company website says, and what the welcome documents tell you, but its time to see it with your own eyes, try to identify what can be improved and if what you believed is actually true.

The power of thanking

Standard

It is sometimes underestimated how powerful a Thank you can be. How many times do you use thank you a day? What about a week or a month? Usually people like being thanked, think of yourself.
