We’re delighted to announce the Dreamforce ’19 Trailblazer Theater, where an incredible array of personal transformation stories will come to life all day, every day. As the Salesforce economy grows and millions of Trailblazers join our community, we’re amazed by the incredible transformation happening in peoples careers, companies, industries, and communities. And we can’t wait to bring them to life in the Trailblazer Theater!

The Trailblazer Theater will be in the heart of the Salesforce Campground and feature Trailblazer stories via live presentations and short videos. It will be a celebration of YOU. A place to share the passion, persistence, innovation, and community love that help you do well and do good. We will explore the innovative, pioneering mindset that propels Trailblazers to completely transform entire companies and industries. And we’ll see inside the beautiful hearts and minds of successful Trailblazers who give back and share their success with the communities they love.

Here are three ways to join the fun!

2. Join the #MyTrailblazerStory social video fun

We know there are thousands of stories ready to be told. But with only four days, we can only feature 50-75 in the live theater. And, we also know that while many of you can’t make the trip, you’re excited to share your story to inspire others! So we invite you to share a short video on social with #MyTrailblazerStory. We will curate and share a collection of these videos on the big screen at the Trailblazer Theater. Here are some guidelines for a great short video:

  1. Keep it succinct. Challenge yourself to keep it to a minute or less.
  2. Get up close. Put your phone or computer camera in landscape mode and get close so the main focus will be on your eyes and smile!
  3. Just be you! The beauty of the Trailblazer Community is we welcome all and embrace the perfectly imperfect, so don’t worry about being super polished.
