As if you’re not counting down already: Dreamforce is just two weeks away! As Seismic’s Director of Sales Operations, I spend a great chunk of my time in Salesforce and am always looking for ways to optimize Salesforce for our sales reps and ensure that they’re getting as much out of it as possible. Luckily, there’s no better place to do just that than Dreamforce! Below are 5 Dreamforce sessions for Salesforce Admins that I’ll be attending, and you should too:
Advancing Your Career on the Salesforce Platform for Admins
What: This session is perfect for Salesforce Admins looking to further their career and make themselves more proficient in Salesforce. You’ll learn how to develop a mix of soft skills, hard skills, and certifications to become a strong Salesforce consultant, project manager, technical architect, developer, or trainer.
When: September 15, 10:00-10:40
Where: Hilton San Francisco Union Square Hotel, Grand Ballroom A
The Lightning Process Builder and the Growing Role of the Salesforce Admin
What: In this session, you’ll learn how the Salesforce Admin role is changing, evolving, and becoming more involved in the definition of business processes.

What’s Coming from Salesforce and Microsoft
What: This is one I’m especially excited about. Seismic has recently released Seismic for Outlook, which allows sales reps to send contextually-relevant content directly from Salesforce to any opportunity, lead or account without leaving Outlook, saving reps time while also increasing Salesforce adoption and usage. This session will discuss the Salesforce and Microsoft Partnership, why it’s thriving, what’s been accomplished so far, and what’s to come.
