Reason #2: Dynamic Speakers & International Panels

This year’s Nonprofit Summit will feature a dynamic mainstage, which will be home to a timely panel on the current climate crisis. You will hear from Darren Walker, president of the Ford Foundation; the COO of Boys and Girls Club of America, Lorraine Orr; members of the aforementioned Mary’s Meals; representatives from OXFAM; and so many others!

In addition, this year we will be featuring six customer spotlight videos featuring; Save The Children, Make-A-Wish, UpLift Family Services, Thrive Scholars, Greenpeace Nordic, and Cure Cancer. We know that our global nonprofit community spans a wide array of mission focuses, so we’re creating an experience that’s designed to support you wherever your needs may be this year.

Reason #3: Learning Labs & Hands-On Training

You spoke and we listened. We know that you don’t just want to hear from leaders in your industry; you want to interact with them. So we’re excited to invite you to the second day of programming, designed for networking, hands-on training, and deep-dive workshops. You’ll be able to sign up to attend our new learning labs and hands-on training closer to the event, but we know you’re probably curious about these new program opportunities, so let’s fill you in!

Learning labs: Learning labs are a reimagined way to collaborate and learn in a virtual environment. Discover best practices and industry insights. Then you’ll engage in a live “lab” with other customers and Salesforce experts where you’ll develop a valuable resource to guide your next steps.

Hands-on training: Hands-on-training sessions are a chance for you to learn and practice new skills. You’ll get access to your own temporary workshop org and follow along with step-by-step instructions, guided LIVE by our adoption experts!
