How do you use your skills to give back to your community?
There are so many opportunities to give back and teach your Salesforce, Pardot, and Marketing Cloud skills to the community. As experts, it's our responsibility to pay it forward. One of my favorite experiences was volunteering to help Girl Scouts learn Salesforce skills with the Build a Lemonade Stand App project (read all about it on the Trailhead Medium blog
). I also helped teach Trailhead at a women's shelter through a program that Karla Coop, a Trailblazer here in Atlanta, runs every six-weeks for women in need. It is a wonderful experience to show women, whether they are young scouts or adults, a set of skills that can help them get a high paying and interesting job. I also love to speak at the community-led events
, a.k.a. the Dreamin' events. So far I've presented about Pardot at Texas Dreamin', Southeast Dreamin', and Midwest Dreamin'! I've also volunteered for Open Office Hours
and to speak about marketing automation at local user groups.
