My name is Geoffrey Flynn but I go by Geoff most of the time.

I’m a Salesforce consultant working in Toronto, Canada and I’m a certified Administrator, Advanced Administrator, Developer, Sales Cloud Consultant, and Service Cloud Consultant.

I was quite content learning things on my own but kept getting stumped trying to learn coding – I just couldn’t get it to make sense.  Then I discovered David Liu’s amazing site sfdc99 that pretty much changed my whole outlook on things.  All of sudden code was making sense and I found myself answering questions on his blog that others were asking.

Everything had started to click and it was then that I realized I could help others a lot more.  I jumped onto success.salesforce.com and also started dipping my foot onto the developer forums to see if I could keep up.  Of course I couldn’t, but I could help with the easier stuff and I found that my explanations made sense to people.

At the same time I was doing this I also started commuting by car every day and listening to podcasts and realized just what an amazing community of people is out there – I wanted to find another way to contribute to that.

This blog is my way of trying to contribute.  I want to change the way Admins and Developers think about solutioning for clients.  I want to change the thought process from meeting requirements to pulling on solutions you have been able to do in your own lives.  If I can’t be happy with a birthday workflow rule for my family, what business do I have trying to build one for a customer?  Along the way I’ll also take deep dives into items that I don’t think are covered enough, and any particular topic that I feel could use some airtime.

Feel free to reuse anything you see, and I hope that every person who visits can get something out of the site, even if it’s just a different take on something they already knew about.  Now I just need some content!

All women who learn coding are heroes! At least they are to me. The tech industry is extremely skewed towards men. Women make up 57% of the US workforce, but are drastically underrepresented in info tech. Stats vary, but we make up between 10-23% of programmers, and much smaller numbers for women of color.

These are some of the stats that show that for many reasons it can be difficult for women to break into the world of Coding. But there are some great ways to get started. That’s where we come in!

I will forever and always be a Salesforce Admin. I do not care how far I move up in the world, my heart and soul will forever be with the awesome admin community.

I have been that person spending my Friday night figuring out a formula or validation rule that just was not working. Then, I was that person jumping for joy at my parents’ house, my apartment or even at my desk when I finally got my formula or validation rule to work!

A Salesforce.com implementation requires the right balance of technical architecture, business process, and change management. I started my career in sales and was always a top seller. This gave me the foundation to know what the end user needs. I transitioned to sales training and got an even deeper perspective on the needs of a sales person. From training I became a global sales operations manager and successfully created and led sales teams across the globe. This allowed me to learn the key elements of process building and KPI analytics. This natural progression led me to become a Salesforce.com Admin and learn the system hands on for three years completing my admin certification in 2009.

In 2010 I formed Agile Cloud Consulting LLC and used all of my practical experience to help organizations tailor Salesforce.com to their needs. I set up successful implementations for sales, support, higher ed, and non profit organizations across the globe. Along the way I completed my advanced admin, developer, service cloud consultant and sales cloud consultant certifications.

In 2011 I teamed up with roundCorner as a Technical Architect to lead global implementations and manage AppExchange products.

Using the Agile Scrum development framework I have helped, and continue to help organizations of all sizes and verticals realize the full potential of the Salesforce.com platform.
