In less than two weeks (November 6, to be exact) members of the iWave team will head to Dreamforce, the largest software conference in the world. But why should you and your nonprofit care?
“Four days of transforming your career, innovating, giving back, having a ball, and connecting with your community of fellow Trailblazers — all at the largest software conference in the world. Sound amazing? It is.
