Rainy Dreamforce


Rain, rain

The weather was threatening just before the 2013 Dreamforce event in San Francisco. A text came in on Sunday from our client at CITRIX, “Can we order 1000 umbrellas or 2500 ponchos by Tuesday in hands?” Well, sure. Why not?

First thing the next morning, we found one of our preferred vendor partners who could product and ship the ponchos in one day. Tuesday, the rain began and the ponchos were deployed. Later, we received a nice follow up from the client:

“I don’t know any other person in the industry who could get a call at 6pm on Sunday for a request for 2500 branded ponchos – AND HAVE THEM DELIVERED BY 10AM on Tuesday!!
It was an insane 48 hours, but we did it. Thank you!!”
