I’ve been selected to speak at London’s Calling this year, which is awesome. I had a talk at the inaugural 2015 event, but ended my streak at one due to a scheduling conflict with my 50th birthday in 2016. I was there in spirit though, through the medium of a cardboard cutout:
For the uninitiated, London’s Calling is a Salesforce community conference, so while it’s associated with and concentrating on Salesforce, it isn’t run by them. This means that it focuses far less on trying to promote/sell the product and far more on the cool things that everyone is doing with it. Imagine an event that is pretty much the Developer Zone and Admin Meadow from the Salesforce Tour events and you won’t be too wide of the mark. Unlike most Salesforce events (outside Dreamforce and TrailheaDX) attendees have to pay to get in, which means that everyone who is there is determined to get maximum value. As a speaker you can expect to receive numerous and detailed questions and, if you are so inclined, to spend time during the end of day networking discussing things in greater detail.
There’s a couple of things I really like about London’s Calling:
What you’ll get from London’s Calling 2018 is insight and information from a wide array of Salesforce experts from the four corners of the Earth, some non-Salesforce specific content that will make you stop and think, and me, Bob Buzzard, in the flesh! What more could you want?
