Delivered by Hilary Clinton, the former U.S. Secretary of State, this particular keynote was one of the highlights of Dreamforce 2017.

She emphasized on the fact that when children are spoken to and read to frequently, it reduces the word gap, helping them achieve more in life. One of the most inspirational Dreamforce keynotes of 2017!
