We’re going to set the scene: You have possibly been using Salesforce for some years and you have seen sales significantly increase, business processes become more streamlined and even employee satisfaction improve. You’ve actually been able to try new innovations you hadn’t even thought of when Salesforce was first proposed to you.

But are you missing out on something?

This article was originally published, with help, in Dutch on the Salesforce NL blog. It is continues below in English…

Salesforce have Circles of Success, Accelerators and a huge online community as options available to you, but we think one of the best methods is talking to your peers – people in a similar position to yourself. Fortunately, in the Netherlands this is very possible!

Whether you are a business user, product owner, administrator or CEO, every month in the Netherlands there are many opportunities to talk to peers on similar journeys courtesy of the Trailblazer community-led program.

Our community has doubled over the last year (the accompanying photo shows the Amsterdam User Group’s Summer Social). We hope that with the member-led workshops, presentations and personal stories, we’re just going to keep on growing and offering even more!

Here’s what’s happening just this September…

Amsterdam User Group (6th September)
The short headlines are: Field Service Lightning; Challenging Personal Demons: Change Management for Your Life; Equality and Perspective.

We have Jodi Wagner MVP and Kathryn Chlosta (our very own co-leader and Vice-Chair, YeurDreamin) presenting and all we can say is “highly recommended!” For more details and to RSVP click here. Also many thanks to Newcraft who are sponsoring.

Amsterdam User Group presents: Apex Adventures for Beginners – Developer Basics Training (22nd September and then weekly)
