On top of being a Business and Integration Architect at Accenture, Deepa’s a multi-year Dreamforce speaker, renowned Salesforce author, and 7x Salesforce certified pro.

She’s deeply committed to helping Trailblazers succeed and has answered hundreds of questions on the Trailblazer Community, helping Trailblazers realize their dreams of getting certified.

Do you know a Salesforce ecosystem hero like Deepa — someone who’s an exceptional leader, a lifelong learner, and who goes above and beyond to help their community blaze trails?

Now’s the time to honor them! We’re thrilled to invite our entire community to join us as we officially open nominations for our 2022 Salesforce MVP class.

What is a Salesforce MVP?

Salesforce MVPs are top-notch product experts committed to sharing their knowledge and helping their communities succeed. Perhaps they’ve helped other Trailblazers navigate their career journeys, solve a complex problem, get certified, make a game-changing connection, or even land a new job.

There’s truly no better way to say “thank you” to a mentor, colleague, or change-maker in your community than by nominating them to become a Salesforce MVP.

Meet current Salesforce MVPs and learn more about the characteristics a Salesforce MVP embodies:

  • Expertise: Salesforce MVPs challenge themselves to maintain a strong understanding of the Salesforce Platform and take great pride in sharing their expertise through technical sessions, social media, answering questions on the Trailblazer Community, and more.
  • Leadership: Salesforce MVPs consistently seek opportunities to innovate. They push forward where there is no path, paving a trail for others to follow. They create and contribute to programs that make a huge difference in other Trailblazers’ journeys — by leading Trailblazer Community Groups, helping underprivileged communities skill up on Salesforce, or participating in programs like Salesforce MVP Office Hours, Mentorship Central, and Community Conferences.
  • Generosity: Salesforce MVPs are the ultimate connectors and mentors. In addition to advancing their careers, maintaining Salesforce expertise, and leading community programs, they’re always ready to share insights, ideas, and connections to help Trailblazers succeed in the Salesforce ecosystem.
