Dreamforce 2023 Preview (Feat. Jill Harrison and Danielle Laffey) 

Our guests this week have over 30 combined years of Dreamforce experience, and today, we’re chatting about the best ways to plan out, learn from, and enjoy the sprawling San Francisco conference. Jill Harrison, Capital Markets and Asset Management Managing Director at Silverline, and Danielle Laffey, Salesforce MVP and Insurance Principal Consultant at Silverline, discuss this year’s overarching themes of A.I. and Data Cloud services, how 70-degree weather can feel chilly in the Bay Area, whether or not to bring laptops to sessions, and how to make connections with industry colleagues.

As exciting as it is to use Dreamforce to look forward, JP notes that it can be just as valuable to remember announcements made a few years ago, like OmniStudio, and compare them to their real world usage
