  3. “Life of a Salesforce Product Manager” – An insightful look into the life of a Salesforce Product Manager, balancing technical skills and strategic planning. The speaker’s personal experiences added a rich, engaging layer to the discussion.
  4. “New Year’s Resolutions for Marketers: First-Party Data, Privacy & Consent” – A critical topic for marketers in our Salesforce community.
