Beyond Dreamforce 2023: Navigating Your Path Forward

A Guide to Maximize Your Post-Dreamforce Experience

Dreamforce 2023 was a whirlwind of innovation and inspiration. Some of the highlights included the Salesforce Platform relaunch known as Einstein 1, the offering of free Data Cloud and Tableau licenses for Sales and Service Cloud customers on the Enterprise or Unlimited edition, and the announcement of Copilot Studio featuring Generative AI through its components: Prompt Builder, Skills Builder, and Model Builder. 

But now that Dreamforce is over, your real journey is just beginning. In this blog, explore the optimal post-Dreamforce follow-up, delving into an array of comprehensive strategies aimed at helping you transform the wealth of knowledge you gained during Dreamforce 2023 into practical, actionable outcomes. 


Organize Your Notes & Learnings

During Dreamforce, you likely found yourself scribbling down notes and capturing screenshots to help you remember all that you learned. You should take the time to summarize your key takeaways and rewrite a brief summary of the main points. This can serve as a quick reference when you need to refresh your memory. You can try dividing your notes into categories that align with your interests or job responsibilities. 

For example, you might try separating your notes into categories like “Sales Strategies,” “Marketing Insights,” and “Product Updates.”  


Share Your Knowledge

Empower your colleagues with fresh perspectives and best practices that can improve their day-to-day work. Your team can benefit from the latest industry trends, technology updates, and success stories you learned at Dreamforce. Consider presenting a summary of your key takeaways during a team meeting or organize “lunch and learn” sessions where you share your Dreamforce insights over a casual team lunch where everyone can learn from the info you learned at Dreamforce.  


Engage with New Connections

Dreamforce is known for its networking opportunities. The connections you made during the event can be invaluable in the professional world, offering opportunities for collaboration, knowledge sharing, and growth. However, the real magic happens when you take the initiative to reengage post-conference and strengthen your new connections. Don’t just set your stack of business cards on your desk and let those valuable connections fade away; take the initiative to reengage and watch your network flourish.
