Hyderabad Trailblazin’ 2018 Round Up in Photos & Videos

I have organized and attended many Salesforce developer events in Singapore but in June’18 I have attended my first Indian Salesforce community event – Hyderabad Trailblazin’.  (I was selected as a Speaker too)  It was a huge event, the first of its kind in Hyderabad, attended by big personalities of Salesforce community not just from India but also from different parts of the world.  The event was a huge success and few exclaimed if they were in Hyderabad or “Dreamforce”!  That is a huge compliment to the event organizers and indicates the success of the event.

Being a Trailblazer

During this event, I was recognized by Salesforce as a “Trailblazer” for the community work that I have been doing both online and offline in Singapore as an Organizer of Salesforce Developers Group in Singapore.  It was very surprising to me because I was not expecting this at all.  It is a great honor for me to be representing a trailblazer and trailblazer community.

Salesforce team has also done a video interview with me then which will be released during Dreamforce 2018, this September.

Salesforce quotes:  “You may have noticed a snazzy piece of fashion more and more people are sporting. It’s a soft, black, zip-up hooded sweater with the words ‘Trailblazer’ emblazoned on the front. If you see someone in a Trailblazer hoodie, you’re looking at a person who is a leader, a transformer, an innovator.”

My Session

Honored to be selected as a Speaker at this grand event and first ever Salesforce Trailblazin community event in Hyderabad!
My session was about “Marketing Cloud” and the endless possibilities of this platform.
