I am participating in the Deloitte Salesforce Consulting Select Program. As always, I love giving you a peek behind the scenes to know what it’s really like. There are 4 sessions: 2 this week and 2 next week. We also have a challenge to complete if we’re to receive a special invitation-only meeting. So without further adieu, here’s my week 1 rundown.
Session 1 – Tuesday
I admit that I have forgotten the time so I arrived late. What I did learn was the these participants are all from around the world. I also learned about some of my colleagues in our breakout room. We immediately went into a Salesforce case study which was good. No fluff here.
Session 2 – Thursday
We reviewed our elevator pitches. This time they combined both Deloitte and Salesforce consultants. Instead of this big breakout cohort, I was paired with another person. I was happy that she loved dining out as much as I did!
Furthermore, I also learned that I had way more work experience (15 years) than some of my colleagues. However, I had absolutely ZERO Salesforce knowledge. I managed to rectify that by going into Trailhead and completing my first badge!
Though I was proud of myself, I did admit that it would be an uphill battle to complete the Admin super set by next Tuesday since I was starting from zero. I would see how it went.
I did complete two more Trailhead badges. I also downloaded a package which was cool. However, this Salesforce challenge was running up against my Microsoft Cloud Skills Challenge. However, I was adamant about accumulating new Salesforce skills and making a dent into my challenge.
