REvolve: From Events to Communities is a free digital event taking place on March 3rd, 2022, from 11AM - 3PM EST.
Opening Keynote: Zara Rutherford
Zara Rutherford, as seen on CNN, The New York Times, and BBC, is a world-record-breaking pilot and women empowerment activist. She will be delivering the opening keynote during REvolve to inspire audiences.
In 2022, Zara Rutherford circumnavigated the globe in a small aircraft and became the youngest woman to fly solo around the world. Zara aims to encourage young women to pursue their dreams and reduce the gender gap in aviation as well as in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
The event organizers aim to strike a balance between inviting industry experts to deliver insights and getting their own community members onto stage. Much of this event will be crowdsourced: ambassadors helping with promotion, survey results impacting the subject of the sessions, and during the event, attendees will be workshopping the values of the community in small groups.
Other speakers include Keneisha Williams, Scott Gould, Jack Owens, and Andrew Roby. Sabrina Meyers will be returning to emcee this event, as she did for Evolve 2.0 back in February 2021, alongside Swapcard’s new Director of Community, Matt Snodgrass, previously from MarketingProfs.
“As we head into the third year of this remote way of working and living, people are craving connection like never before. With the launch of REvolve: from Events to Communities, we’re excited to not only share our vision of what a virtual event can be, but to help eventprofs around the world recognize the power of moving from a one-off event-based mentality, to one that embraces year-round engagement and interaction with the community.
