“Be inspired. Share your journey. Improve yourself, your organization, and the wider community.” – Inspire East 2019

Salesforce experts came together in Cambridge, UK on October 4th, 2019, for networking and learning from some of the industry’s brightest minds.  

InspireEast took place in the Danish-inspired ller Centre, which provided a convenient location for the Salesforce community East of London to gather and exchange ideas.  

Steph Herrera, founder of Salesforce Saturday and VP at Computer Futures, presented the opening keynote. Steph is a Salesforce MVP recognized for her exceptional contributions to the Trailblazer community. Her main criteria for career success? Show up, be present, engage, connect, level up, and give back.

What is a community-led Salesforce event?  

A community-led Salesforce event is a group of enthusiastic users and community leaders working together and empowering each other under one roof. Salesforce events are focused on bringing the #Ohana together to share ideas and inspire others. A community-led Salesforce event, such as InspireEast, can be organized by anyone 

At many community-led Salesforce events, specialists compete against each other to demonstrate the benefits of add-on solutions from the Salesforce AppExchangeCloudCall, a gold sponsor of InspireEast, demonstrated advanced telephony features integrated with Salesforce during #DemoJam.  

How does InspireEast benefit users?  

InspireEast benefits users, admins, developers, project managers, IT managers, and anyone who wants to further their career in Salesforce by bringing experts together to share knowledge. All sponsors are specialists with applications ready to provide the kickstart your business needs. The goal is to provide ideas based on real-life experiences so that anyone can harness the power of Salesforce without code. 

What do you need to know about attending InspireEast? 

If you’re thinking about attending InspireEast next year, it’s important to know that this was not a sales-focused event. InspireEast was centered around sharing ideas, meeting new people, and having fun. The main motive for this event was ensuring users can get the most value from the Salesforce platform and making the platform easier to manage for users.
