This was the first thing I saw while walking to Dreamforce on Monday. Yesware, who yes is a proud sponsor of S4S, leased a school bus with the intention of driving Dreamforce attendees around for free. It was a cool idea and I’m sure happy hour attendees greatly appreciated it.
Bennett and I were invited by Salesforce.com’s PR agency to attend the Press Kick-off Party which was pretty awesome. They hosted it at a cool venue called The Battery. We met all sorts of cool folks and were super humbled to be there.
Later that night we headed over to Thirsty Bear to overdose on tapas and wine; and based on my headache the next morning we did a good job of it. Datanyze partnered with a few other cool vendors for this happy hour. We had a chance to meet with with great sales thought leaders like Jill Konrath and Trish Bertuzzi.
We swung by Yesware’s booth in Moscone West and snapped a quick picture. Sorry about the photo quality but my iPhone decided to suck on us at that moment. Nearby booths included Tout App, Survey Monkey, Totango, Voxa, SalesLoft, and many others.
While we were at Thirsty Bear we ran into my good pal and sales expert Craig Elias, Dashtab.co Co-founder Cody Walker, and GageIn CMO Richard Dym. It was fun to see these guys who represent so many perspectives around b2b sales and technology.
Wednesday morning Jason and I attended Max Altschuler’s SalesHacker Brunch featuring top sales trainer John Barrows. It was pretty awesome and had killer bloody marys. John’s talk on negotiation was also top notch.
The legendary Ken Krogue invited me to host a Dreamforce breakout session around which I focused on the topic of the Psychology of Sales and Winning. It was also an incredible honor to be speaking next to Ken.
