1. Keynote Speaker: Barack Obama
Every year, Dreamforce has a more star-studded panelist of speakers than any other sales conference in the country. And this year is no different. One of the most exciting keynote speakers to grace the Dreamforce stage this year is Barack Obama. The 44th President of the United States has accomplished many great things in his life. His humble beginnings gave him the courage and determination to stand up for what he believed in later on in life.
After graduating high school in Hawaii, Obama went on to attend the Occidental College in Los Angeles before transferring to Columbia University in New York where he received his bachelor’s degree in political science. After that, he went on to attend and graduate from Harvard Law School and moved to Chicago to become a civil rights lawyer while also teaching Constitutional Law part-time.
Today, Obama has many different careers and accolades on his resume. In addition to being a lawyer, he was elected as the Illinois State Senator in 1996 and was later elected into the U.S Senate. Then, in 2009, Barack Obama became the first-ever African-American President of the United States. He had arguably accomplished more in the first 100 days of his presidency than previous presidents were able to accomplish in an entire term. Because of his remarkable efforts to forge diplomatic relations with foreign countries, Obama was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.
Barack Obama has lived an exciting and inspirational life. One of the many things that the former president is known for is his ability to deliver insightful and informative speeches. Obama’s keynotes at Dreamforce this year will definitely be a moment that you will not want to miss out on.
