Traction Road Trip 2017: A Driving Force for Good from Montreal to Toronto

‘80s mix tape? Check!
Neon sweatband? Check!
Do-good attitude? Double Check!

These are the packing essentials as we get ready for our first ever Traction Road Trip between Montreal and Toronto in April. For four years, our West Coast office has been supporting non-profit organizations during the Bandit Tour for Good, a road trip from Vancouver to San Francisco. Now, we are bringing the action east.

From April 17-20 we will be driving through Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto, providing pro-bono Salesforce services to non-profits, teaching girls to code and performing countless acts of kindness.

The inspiration behind Traction Road Trip is our Traction for Good philosophy of “giving what you’re good at.” Tractionites have demonstrated time and again that they are more than good at leveraging their knowledge of the Salesforce platform to enable non-profits to be more efficient!

And that is why we’re putting out a call to all non-profits currently using Salesforce in Montreal, Ottawa and the Toronto-area. We are providing support and guidance to these organizations so they can focus less on their day-to-day operations and more on delivering their mission.

We will be offering three pro-bono services:

1) System training: Want to know the tricks of the trade for Salesforce administration? With this option, you will sit down with a group of Salesforce consultants who will answer any questions you may have.

2) Report building: Want to leverage the sophisticated reporting engine in Salesforce to analyze your contacts, opportunities and other data sets? Learn how to build valuable dashboards to support your organization and how to use the data on a daily basis. Moving forwards, wow your board with data-driven decisions and visuals that tell your organization’s story in a meaningful way. In essence, get out of Salesforce what you put in, but better.

3) You choose! Is there anything else Salesforce-related that you need support with? Let us know.

Apply now to tap into the expertise of pro-bono consultants at Traction on Demand. The application deadline is March 30th.

We hope you can join us on our inaugural Traction Road Trip adventure. It is sure to be filled with lots of smiles, laughs and ‘80s hits!

Can’t join us in person? Connect with us online to catch all the action: Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram.
