Last year over 160,000 people registered to attend Salesforce.com’s spectacular Dreamforce conference, with over 8,000 attending specifically for nonprofit and higher education causes. Heller Consulting will be front and center in the nonprofit-focused Salesforce.org Lodge again this year prepared to help organizations get the most from their technology investment. We have a deep understanding of nonprofit strategies and technology, and how to bring the two together to improve fundraising, program management, and engagement efforts. Come by and visit us during the conference, or better yet, let’s set up a time to talk! Just use the contact form to the right and we’ll contact you to pick a convenient time!
Where we’ll be:

Join us in the Power of Us Theater
Heller will be on stage in the Salesforce.org Lodge again this year sharing best practices and effective procedures we’ve learned through hundreds of client projects. This year we’ll discuss creating a roadmap for an effective CRM solution that leverages the strength of the Salesforce platform for today’s needs, as well as building a foundation that will allow future growth and functionality.
Please join us, and be sure to stay in the Salesforce.org Lodge afterward for open discussion and a relaxed gathering with other nonprofit professionals.
