Transform Customer Relationships With the Service Trailblazer Community

Connect with service professionals and shape the future of customer experience.

At Salesforce, anyone can be a Trailblazer — customer service manager, business architect, administrator, developer, product marketer, or executive. Trailblazers are innovators, pioneers, and life-long learners who propel the future of technology and innovation. They inspire others with their constant innovation by transforming the customer experience, growing their careers, and making the world a better place.

Our Trailblazer Community is full of groups who learn Salesforce and have fun. For the service industry, we have the Service Insider Community made up of more than 600 Trailblazers. They share best practices, support others, and expand their networks — all while defining what’s next for customer service. And bi-weekly, they take a deeper dive into topics that are top of mind during virtual coffee chats.

Service Insider Elite members are part of our service Trailblazer community. Launched April 6, 2020, the Service Insider Elite program brings together some of our most engaged, innovative, and distinguished Trailblazers. They stand out in the Service Insider Community for these reasons:

  • Expert knowledge and experience with Salesforce products
  • Transforming their career with Salesforce
  • Continually sharing knowledge to help others

Service Insider Elite members are also featured thought leaders with exclusive speaking engagements on behalf of Salesforce, guest blogging, analyst reports, press interviews, and much more. 

Join us in congratulating these Trailblazers. Let’s meet them and learn about what they bring to Service Insider Elite.
