Wow! Dreamforce 2018 was on fire! An army of Trailblazers gathered in San Francisco in the tens of thousands for the biggest and the greatest Dreamforce ever! And the Commercient team was there as an exhibitor.

The Commercient team also attended the following events and keynotes:

  • Benioff Keynote
  • Dreamfest concert
  • 1% Pledge team meeting
  • Bluewolf Success Reception
  • AppBash party

On Tuesday, September 25, 2018, Marc Benioff, Chairman and co-CEO of Salesforce, got on stage and gave his most important speech of the year for the official “Celebration of Trailblazers” keynote. The Fourth Industrial Revolution was the highlight of his address.

“Everyone has to come in for the Fourth Industrial Revolution. It’s inclusive capitalism. Capitalism means we’re all going together into the future. We are leaving no-one behind.

“In a world where technology is taking us over and in a world where technology through the Fourth Industrial Revolution is grabbing us, realize that we all have a higher responsibility to ask that question, especially to see the gambits that are unfolding before us, especially as Artificial Intelligence gets released into the world.

“All of us have to ask the question – what is really important to us? What is the most important thing? What are our values? What are we going to stand for?”

Marc Benioff’s words moved and inspired Trailblazers to transform the way they do business, and make the world a better place.

The Fourth Industrial Revolution is happening right now, and it’s changing everything. Technology is changing; everything and everyone is connected – all the time, everywhere.

Commercient is part of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, and we are ready for it. We are blazing a trail towards connection and integration.

At the Pledge 1% area with Commercient’s Corinne Allgaier, John Angove and Richard Jenkins

Salesforce is all about the 1% pledge, and our 1% pledge is about doing well and doing good. Doing well in business and also doing good in the world. It’s about expressing our values, and being aligned with our values. We have a higher responsibility to ask ourselves the question, what is really important to us?

Which is why Commercient leadership is committed to community efforts with Girls Inc, Habitat for Humanity, and the mental health advocacy group, NAMI Georgia. Commercient is committed to being involved in organizations that strive for human dignity and well-being.

On Wednesday night, legendary performers Metallica and Janet Jackson rocked the Dreamfest charity concerts in aid of the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital. The concerts were followed by an after party inside City Hall, which had Trailblazers partying up a storm until the early hours of the morning.

The conference ended on Friday with Dreamtalks from the likes of Deepak Chopra, Arianna Huffington and Jack Kornfield.
