About Megan Himan
Speaker. Writer. Strategist. Solution Architect.
After ten years consulting on the Salesforce platform, I care deeply about teaching technical teams the people and strategy skills that fuel organizational change. I have six Salesforce certifications (Admin, Advanced Admin, Sales Cloud Consultant, Service Cloud Consultant, Community Cloud Consultant, Nonprofit Cloud Consultant), but I am most proud of walking 200 km on the Camino de Santiago (last year) and playing for the US National Rugby Team (many years ago). I'm a three-time Salesforce MVP (named in 2017, 2018, 2019). After coaching dozens of friends and acquaintances on how to start their own profitable consulting practices, I packaged this knowledge into a practical and actionable course so that more women and underrepresented folks in tech can find the same financial and personal freedom that I have. I love presenting to audiences big and small using storytelling, most recently on the stage at Dreamforce. I am founder & principal of BrightStep Partners, where my team helps organizations transform the way they work using the Salesforce Platform. BrightStep Leadership is my newest project, where I challenge technical leaders to think differently about customer experience, communication and strategy.
Ever since I learned the power of storytelling + presentations from a mentor, I delight in taking the time to consolidate and share my own learnings through presentations. I'm available to speak at your user group virtually, and in-person at meetings and conferences depending on availability. I find equal joy in speaking at major events (keynote with 7,000 people at Dreamforce 2018) and user group meetings (virtual talk to user group in Amsterdam).
