Salesforce User Group Leader?

Faith is co-organizer of the RI Developer group, who teams closely with the RI (Providence) User group for events. The small but growing local Ohanas join forces to learn from MVPs, enjoy TrailheaDX celebrations, and share Astro-nomical love.

Favorite Salesforce Feature

Faith’s overall favorite is automation: helping identify gaps and pain points in clients’ business processes and knowing exactly how Salesforce can come to the rescue. She loves hearing people complain and having an answer how “Salesforce can solve that!”

Salesforce’s Biggest Opportunity for Improvement

Sometimes Salesforce sells ahead of what it can do well. Safe harbor and all, and development did usually catch up, but that can be very frustrating to a client at first.

5 Fun Facts about me:

  1. Has an Australian Cattle Dog “fur baby” who shepherds her around the house constantly.
  2. Mom of one very lovely little baby girl!
  3. Works from home for the best company in the world, GearsCRM. Absolutely LOVES her career and place of business! Grateful to Benioff and Salesforce every day.
  4. Aiming for her CTA. Hopefully in 2018 or 2019!
  5. Relaxes by: gardening, chillin with her amazing husband, playing with her baby, watching sci-fi, knitting, &/or plugging along Trailhead at her BadgeADay pace.

Most Identifies With This Salesforce Mascot:

Codey the bear, because he tends bonzai trees AND knows how to code.

Salesforce User Group Leader?

Co-Leader of Salesforce Developer Group in Singapore for the past 2 years. Actively speaking and organizing events for the group.

Favorite Salesforce Feature

Process Builder – You control the sequence of updates than can be performed on an object, unlike workflow!

Salesforce’s Biggest Opportunity for Improvement

It is Marketing Cloud product! Currently, this platform isn’t fully matured but everyone is super keen on it. I think Salesforce can do and will do much better there.

5 Fun Facts about me:

  1. Watches a wide range of movies at home but falls asleep every single time! No exception. If you wanna watch movie with him, bring him to the cinema, never at home!
  2. Enjoys shopping as much as gals do. While men would sulk at one corner or secretly complaint about gals walking tirelessly, he seems to follow the saying, “If you can’t beat them, join them”
  3. Mumbles in his sleep – in English! While English is not his mother tongue.
  4. So adventurous that he did Sky Diving, Para Gliding. A Karate blackbelt holder but utterly scared of lizard, a crawling lizard. Runs out of the house if he finds one in his room. The house is either his or the lizard’s – they both don’t stay together.
  5. Enrolled in a fitness centre with hundreds of fitness classes available but chooses to do treadmill instead.

Most Identifies With This Salesforce Mascot:

Codey, because he loves to code! He builds, he makes, he enjoys. And Codey can give Huge Hugs like no other.
