In May, ShoNet attended Salesforce World Tour London at ExCeL. With over 15,000 registrants and 100 cloud partners, it was the biggest Salesforce event held outside of the US and one of the largest software events held in the UK.

Salesforce World Tour events provide an occasion for those in the Salesforce community to get together, share knowledge and learn. The event provided attendees with the opportunity to gain insight into the future of the customer experience and the rapid growth of cloud computing.

Here are some of our highlights!:

“How you deal with change determines success.” – Sir Chris Hoy, six-time Olympic gold medallist
In our fast-changing and increasingly digital world, how can organisations deal with change and create success? With Salesforce! On the day, the live demonstrations of Salesforce products like the Marketing Cloud showed how Salesforce is a powerful tool for enhancing the customer experience in the digital age. During the
Product Keynotes, we learned how organisations have risen to the challenges of the digital age by using Salesforce.

“Opportunities are out there for you to take, it’s just about seizing them really!” – Rosemary Russell, STEMettes
Only 14% of people working in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) are female. But
STEMettes are trying to change that – and during the Keynote, Anne-Marie Imafidon of STEMettes spoke about how Salesforce have helped STEMettes to tackle gender imbalance in STEM careers in the UK.

“Cloud is the new normal.” – Peter Coffee, VP Strategic Research, Salesforce

85 of the world’s 100 most valuable brands use Salesforce to run their businesses and reach customers? That said, it’s no surprise that “cloud is the new normal”!
