Francis has been working in the tech world for nearly 20 years as a developer and Technical Architect. For the last 10 years, Francis has specialised in Salesforce.com & AWS technologies. He is a regular speaker at tech events in the UK and around the world. He has spoken for the past 5 years at Salesforce’s annual Dreamforce event in San Francisco, as well as Salesforce WorldTour events around Europe.
Sitting around a table, Francis teamed up with three colleagues and decided London needed a Salesforce Tech event. They had never put a tech event on at this scale, had no money, no one really knew them, had no speakers, didn’t know if anyone would turn up and had 4 months to make it. In the end, they sold out with 97.6% of people saying it exceeded their expectations and sponsors were saying that it was one of the best events they had been too.
This is a talk on lessons Francis and the team learnt in financing and sponsoring the event.Watch this session online!
