Dreamforce: What's in It for Nonprofits?
Still on the fence about attending Dreamforce, Salesforce's annual conference? At Idealist Consulting, we have been attending Dreamforce for nearly 20 years, including hosting our annual party for the nonprofit community, The Engagement Party. Below we'll explore three key reasons why we think attending Dreamforce can be immensely beneficial for individuals working in the nonprofit space: connection, learning, and of course, fun!
Finding Community: A Foundation for Growth
Dreamforce provides the perfect opportunity to connect in person with a diverse range of professionals from various industries, including nonprofits. For first-time attendees, this conference offers the intangible value of establishing relationships in the space when prepping for a big technology journey. However, even for seasoned Dreamforce attendees, the networking aspect remains consistently valuable.
One of the greatest advantages of networking at Dreamforce is the chance to develop relationships with like-minded individuals who share a passion for Salesforce. For nonprofit administrators, connecting with individuals who can provide guidance and support on Salesforce-related matters is an invaluable asset. These connections not only help advance the organization's mission but also offer opportunities for personal and professional growth. Come find your people at Dreamforce!
