Salesforce consulting and tomato-growing are not mutually exclusive activities.

As Mike kindly said in his introduction: “She has a very impressive background and has worked to implement Salesforce in a variety of verticals. She is the Principal at Endiem a Salesforce.com practice based in Houston where she works with organizations to help them align their strategic goals with Salesforce.com and other cloud products and services.”

In this episode Geraldine, Mike and Jared have a great conversation about the origins of the Girly Geeks and how fast that group has taken off at Dreamforce. Not to mention Geraldine’s great tips for networking at Dreamforce and how to not get your bum pinched. They also discuss career transitions from being an Admin to Consultant, to starting your own Salesforce consulting practice. Geraldine offered some great tips for communicating with Executives and what NOT to do in a meeting when bringing on a new department.
