The Technology Strategy of Love – Tracy Kronzak of Salesforce.org
Unfortunately we were only able to capture half of the conference opening keynote.
Tracy Kronzak, Senior Manager, Partner Success at Salesforce.org will share reflections on connecting the hard work of technology to the work of the heart of mission-driven communities. Technology strategy requires us to not only know the why of what we’re executing, but the why of what we’re here in service of, and delivery in support of peace and justice. “The greatest act of love is to be of service to another human being. We begin our journey at nonprofits because we act from the heart, and the execution of our technology becomes the new territory of the heart – worth the time, thought, and certitude that all matters of the heart engender.”
