Disrupt Yourself Podcast with Whitney Johnson

Jan 30, 2018

Vala Afshar, my guest on the Disrupt Yourself podcast, is here to answer the burning question:

What is a Chief Digital Evangelist?

Vala, with his prior company, was an early Salesforce customer. He used Salesforce and innovated with it for years before he went to work there. He became “the first evangelist hired at Salesforce, so it was new territory.”

In addition to all things Salesforce, Vala talks about this—the nontraditional job search, and the nontraditional candidate vetting. His insights into how savvy, forward-thinking companies will be hiring in the future is worth a listen too.
