If you haven’t heard by now, Rave’s Annual Summit will be taking place virtually from September 21-23, 2021. Rave Summit will deliver every element of a live event in an online environment with major product announcements and training, best practice sessions, our collaborative Guru Lounge, two exciting keynote speakers, networking opportunities and more.
We are honored to have Jake Wood, co-founder and CEO of Team Rubicon, and Siri Lindley, world champion triathlete and high-performance coach, as our keynote speakers!
Jake Wood is the co-founder and CEO of Team Rubicon, a nonprofit organization that recruits, trains, and deploys military veterans to disaster zones around the world and within the United States. Since 2010, Team Rubicon has scaled to 100,000 volunteers and deployed teams to some of the worst catastrophes of the century. Jake is the author of the best-selling memoir, Once a Warrior: How One Veteran Found a New Mission Closer to Home (2020).
Siri Lindley shares fear-shattering strategies for changing the thoughts, habits, and behaviors that hold people and organizations back. With an infectious and authentic passion, she empowers audiences to strive for peak performance, work through and ultimately conquer the demons of fear and self-doubt. Today, as the world’s former #1 ranked triathlete, an in-demand coach, one of Tony Robbins favorite motivational speakers, and cancer survivor, Siri has made it her business to change lives for the better.
For new Rave Customers, this might be the first time you are hearing about #RaveSummit. For customers who have been partnered with us for many years, you might have attended or thought about attending. Our customers often ask us, “What will I get out of attending?” In addition to seeing keynote speakers, here are some of the top highlights:
We thought for years the biggest benefit customers got from attending was being able to sit down and have a meal or a beverage with our product team, executive team and the folks at Rave who design and build the solutions they use to enhance safety and communications. We were not wrong with that assumption, but might have been narrow-sighted. The truth is customers hear from us a lot, but want to hear from each other even more! Sure, it’s awesome to hear road maps and give feedback to the people who build products at Rave, but we’ve heard the interactions and conversations between customers who attend the Rave Summit can be even more valuable.
Attendees from last year’s Summit overwhelmingly said their favorite part of the conference was talking to a school of their size or county/city of their population about how they made the most use of their Rave products. How they overcame similar challenges, collaborated with other schools, counties or companies around emergency communication. Listen to how someone with a similar role and responsibilities as you in a different state handles the same situations you deal with day to day, and provide them with more perspective and lessons they can apply in their community.
So when you ask yourself, “Should I go to Rave Summit this year?”, take into account the networking events, powerful keynotes, product training, and guru lounges – but don’t forget about inspirational insights, solving problems and creating valuable industry relationships.
