In Talent Hub TV by Talent Hub GlobalLeave a Comment

In today’s episode we’re thrilled to be joined by Melissa Shepard, Salesforce CTA, Golden Hoodie recipient and Founder of Lizztech Consulting, a Salesforce consulting business based in the USA.

We discuss Melissa’s background, how she first joined the Salesforce ecosystem from roles in Java and .Net, and what her career trajectory has looked like since, including a period working in product development.

We discuss the difference between a Developer or Engineer and an Architect, why she decided to pursue the CTA initially, what her personal journey looked like, and how her role has shifted since passing the Review Board.

As a Golden Hoodie recipient, Melissa shares what the acknowledgement means to her, and we also touch on her new venture, a not for profit called ScaleUp Archs. She explains what it is, and what her plans and goals are for it.

Make sure you’re following Melissa on LinkedIn for her updates and we hope you enjoy the chat.
