DF16 - Community Powered Circles of Success with MVPs



"Circles of success" is an amazing approach towards interactive group conversations, where focus is for like minder customers to come together as a small group, and start a more engaging unscripted discussion with each other. These discussions are good for getting tips about "getting starting" and "adoption" related topics. What I liked most here is, its customer to customer interaction, which opens great possibilities to share real life knowledge, earned out of solving real business challenges.

Dreamforce'16 is offering nearly 141 "Circles of success" sessions, which are based on all good variety of topics for customer, admins and developers (check below)

Dear readers, e-meet Mia Velasco from Salesforce, she works in Customer Success Group at Salesforce. Her primary focus is the success of Salesforce customers.

I met Mia few months back, at a Salesforce event in Chicago. We discussed about effectiveness of "Circles of success" programme, and she tossed an idea of doing the same at Dreamforce with MVPs. Myself and many other MVPs were immediately hooked up to the concept, and here we are now with this "Community powered circles of success" programme about to go live in few days.

I would like to express my sincere thanks to Mia, she is very open and cooperative since starting, and did a fabulous job of connecting all dots of Salesforce community together.
