Automate anything, empower everyone. At MuleSoft CONNECT 2022, IT leaders, product experts, architects, and community members met in four cities around the world to dive deep into how to drive a scalable, values-driven digital transformation leveraging the latest innovations from MuleSoft and Salesforce. 

An inspiration-filled keynote

This year’s keynote featured such luminaries as organizational psychologist, #1 New York Times bestselling author, WorkLife podcast host, and Wharton professor Adam Grant, Salesforce co-CEO Bret Taylor, and MuleSoft CEO Brent Hayward.

Adam Grant emphasized the importance of keeping an investigative mind and proactively re-strategizing. “There is a growing body of evidence that if we teach IT and business leaders to think more like scientists, you actually make better decisions,” Grant said. 

Bret Taylor focused on adhering to your company’s principles: “It has never been more important in this world to lead with your values.” Not only does this differentiate your company from the rest, but with the use of cutting-edge platforms from Salesforce and MuleSoft, you can lead with your values and still drive bottom-line efficiency and productivity.

Other expert speakers at this year’s keynote included MuleSoft’s Patty Cheung and Stephen Hsu; Bayer Crop Science’s Geoffrey Hickman; and Western Union’s Tom Mazzaferro. To find out more about how you can encourage new ideas and effectively transform your business, watch the full keynote
