Building Influence in the Social Business Ecosystem
Posted on December 15th 2013
One of our favorite things about Salesforce’s annual Dreamforce conference is the people it draws and the wealth of knowledge, experience, and perspectives that they bring. Even for San Francisco, the quantity and caliber of founders, analysts, media, investors, CEOs, and executives are truly astounding.

We’ll be sharing a thought leader video here each week. The first one is truly a gem. Vala Afshar, Extreme Networks CMO, explains that “customer experience is a collection of memories.
