As many of you know I work for Salesforce.com.   This week we had our conference Cloudforce Japan in Tokyo.   We had the pleasure of two very special guests; Former Secretary of State for the US General Colin Powell and President and CEO of Toyota Motor Corporation Akio Toyoda join us.   I had the privilege of meeting General Powell the evening before.

I quickly become the go to photographer and snapped some shots for co-workers.   Here is my co-worker Joe Poch speaking with General Powell along with the CEO of Yelp Jeremy Stoppelman.

The next day at Cloudforce I was able to capture this great moment when our CEO Marc Benioff stopped with General Powell and Toyoda-san to wrap some christmas presents as part of Operation Tomodachi and speak about the need for corporate philanthropy.
