In our Meet the Winners series, we speak with those who picked up one of our much sought-after winners’ trophies at the 2022 Digital Revolution Awards.
Gaspar Rodriguez won the Outstanding Contribution to the Salesforce Ecosystem. An eleven-times certified Salesforce professional, he’s been a part of the ecosystem for over a decade. He co-founded RefugeeForce, a social enterprise that works to create a global movement to help newcomers launch their own careers in Salesforce.
Overall, the experience was excellent. I felt honored to be part of this important event alongside such talented and motivated nominees.
Firstly, I would like to congratulate the two other nominees from my award, LDN Apprenticeships and Heather Black from Supermums, for all the excellent work they are doing. One winner that certainly stood out to me was Merkle as Diversity Employer of the Year. Where most companies just talk about diversity, Merkle is really putting their efforts and practices into becoming a more inclusive employer.
Do something that matters in tech and do it well. You will be noticed and recognized, no doubt.
There is so much celebration around success in the cloud but, ultimately, that definition of success is financial. The Digital Revolution Awards is all about recognizing a different and more important kind of value and measurement of success in tech. For a social enterprise like ours, it is hugely important for people to take notice of what we are working hard to achieve.
So many wonderful people, I’m sure! Time was limited and I wanted to make sure to thank my co-founders Nick and Marielle who signed up for this crazy idea, and are still on this journey with me every day.
The trophy will be proudly displayed in our offices in central Amsterdam.
