Salesforce Robot San Francisco Team Building
Robot San Francisco Team Building with Salesforce was a huge hit and a ton of fun going deep into downtown and many floors up. Salesforce is famous for filling one of the most needed, global, and profitable uses for the “the cloud” faster and better than anyone else. They not only saw the need for a CRM (Customer Relationship Management) that is easy to access, easy to update from anywhere, reliable, secure, organized, and managed, but, they also convinced sales people to trust the cloud with their most valuable asset. They are like many incredibly successful companies in the bay area and San Francisco in that they so perfectly understood a need, and they could execute on the solution; or as Henry Ford was quoted as writing – “Vision without execution is just hallucination.”
Founded in 1999, initial public offering in June of 2004, and, in October 2014, Salesforce announced the development of its Customer Success Platform to tie together Salesforce’s services, including sales, service, marketing, analytics, community, and mobile apps. Today they have over $8 billion in revenue and were ranked in Fortune’s “100 Best Companies to Work For in 2018!” No wonder they brought the best San Francisco team building event for high tech companies, the TeamWorx Robot Battles Team Building!
Our Robot San Francisco Team Building event included about 30 people in charge of testing new software, debugging software, and providing reliable services to the employees of Salesforce. Since Salesforce uses their own products internally, there is crossover. Needless to say some very talented and relied upon personal. Their performance building the robots was outstanding with teams finishing very close together in a competitive build competition that came down to the “wire” – literally one wire separated the winning team (pictured above) from second place – exciting!
The battles were even more fun with team versus team quickly escalating into a semi-controlled all bot -melee. It was Friday afternoon the day before a three day Labor Day weekend, so people were feeling a little less structured than a normal 10 hour day might bring. My attempts at ordering the fun fell between the sound waves of crashing aluminum and Romanesque cheers of victory. Luckily they self guided themselves into more fun and numerous battles for everyone. I was relegated from emcee to master mechanic, quickly repairing damage and throwing back the fixed bot to the robot warriors controlling them.
We stayed a half hour after the close of the event to give some die-hard bot battlers some extra memories before closing it down for the weekend. On the way home I opened the windows and gave our mechanical heroes some well deserved fresh air for the ride back.
Thank you again to Salesforce for bringing us downtown and up into the sky for some amazing battles!Robot Team Building
