If you haven’t heard by now, Rave’s Annual Summit will be taking place virtually from September 27-29, 2022. 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 Brett Culp, Acclaimed Filmmaker & Social Entrepreneur, and Dr. Jillian Peterson, Forensic Psychologist & Professor of Criminology, as our keynote speakers!
Brett Culp is an award-winning documentary filmmaker whose work inspires audiences to embrace and accept change, empower others, and spark innovation. His in-person and virtual keynotes leave audiences better equipped to master their leadership challenges. Brett is known for the films Legends of the Knight and Look to the Sky, both of which explore the power we possess to create positive change and work toward a better tomorrow. His uplifting films are featured on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and Apple TV.
Dr. Jillian Peterson is a forensic psychologist, professor of criminology at Hamline University, and previous investigator on death penalty cases in New York City. She is the co-author of the highly acclaimed book, The Violence Project: How to Stop a Mass Shooting Epidemic, based on four years of in-depth research into the lives of mass shooters. Dr. Peterson believes the best way to prevent violence is to deeply understand the life histories of people who commit it.
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.
