Time for change is here!

Over the past few weeks I have been busy with my new business partner (Alek Gokiert) setting up Morphate – the only Salesforce Partner that is focussed solely on driving transformation in the Not for Profit sector across Australia and New Zealand.


You may ask why – well I think the sector deserves a Salesforce partner that is focussed on delivering the best of breed products for Not for Profits. Regardless of your size or complexity we have a range of products in our toolbox that will meet your needs.

At our official launch this week, during Salesforce at CeBit, it was fantastic to see and speak with so many #NFP’s that attended CeBit to understand what new technologies are available and how they can be used in their organisations.

In case you missed it here is the presentation that we presented at the Salesforce Theatre sessions during Salesforce at CeBit which showcased some of the products available to help drive transformation in Not for Profits.

All the above products are built on the Salesforce platform allowing you to leverage Salesforce and other apps from the appExchange across your entire organisation.

But what if you missed CeBit or wanted a deeper dive into those products? Well you’re in luck, over the coming weeks we will be delivering regular Webinars about the products that are available to you, detailing how you can be using these in your organisation.

To ensure you get the most from the webinars I have included a poll below for you to vote on which sessions you are interested in attending. Your votes will determine the order the Webinars will be presented. We will publish the agenda for the webinars in a new post so be sure to follow our blog to stay in touch.


So jump in and let us know what you want to see and yes you can vote for more than one session. Voting will close by Wednesday 14th May with the Webinars commencing from the next week.

In the meantime if you want to know more about our products then check out morphate.com or give us a call on 61 2 8090 1478 and we will be happy to have a chat.

The outlook for next week is Cloudy with a hint of awesomeness in the air

Yep I know it’s a crazy title but it’s a hint that next week will be a full week of fun and cloudy type events.


On Wednesday I will be in Melbourne at the #Salesforce1Tour event. This will be a day highlighting the Salesforce1 platform and how companies and organisations are using Salesforce. For me the most exciting bit is the ‘Ask an Expert’ bar – this will be the first time that we will have a dedicated space in an Australian event staffed by the local Salesforce MVP’s (Steven Herod, Matt Lacey, Jason Lawrence and myself) and a great crew of volunteers from our various User Groups. Anybody can come up and ask us any question about Salesforce and challenge us to help solve your problems.

The other cool thing about the #Salesforce1Tour event is the breakout sessions. There is something for everyone from sessions such as 5 Emerging Digital Trends by Derek Laney, to Using Salesforce to Grow and Succeed by Tom Karemacher or The Power of the Connected Nonprofit by Andrew Hill.

I am sure it will an informative and interesting day and I hope to catch up with you at the event.

But wait… that’s not all. On Friday night in Sydney we will be holding a #CloudCrowd event focussing on the Internet of Things.


Who/What is the #CloudCrowd? Well it’s you if you’re reading this but basically it is a bunch of people who are interested in the cloud, who enjoy talking about and spreading the word about the cloud and are keen to stay ahead of the game.

The night will be a fun night featuring a panel including Mark PesceMatt LaceyReid Carlberg and hosted by Derek Laney. and we are expecting some great discussions from the floor about #IoT as well as the Social Media command centre which will be tracking all social activity on the night. Don’t forget to bring your party shoes as we have a band to help get the event pumping.. and there is plenty of food and drinks on offer as well.

The best bit – this is all FREE! So don’t hesitate jump into our #CloudCrowd Linkedin group for details on how you can grab your ticket now and also don’t forget to follow us on Twitter for all the latest news and details about our events.

So the week will be jam packed full of awesomeness and fun and I hope to catchup with you at either, or both, of the events this week.
