In This Episode:
Barbara Campbell is a result-oriented professional with 15+ years of experience as a trusted advisor for large enterprise customers and Fortune 500 brands. She spent the first part of her career in sports marketing, working on promotions for licensed sponsor activations in the professional sports and entertainment industry. Moving from sports to technology was a big shift, but a welcome one. Being hired onto the world’s #1 CRM platform, Salesforce, Barb would get to work with customers on developing their SaaS adoption strategies. This eventually led to a desire to resolve complex customer issues in global escalations, where she has now built and manages a team of escalation managers in North America. Barb’s other passion lies in coaching and high-impact teaming facilitation, which she leverages at Salesforce and as an Executive in Residence at California State University San Marcos. She truly believes any job can be your #dreamjob if you design it that way.
