Evo Conference



A few weeks ago, I was invited and sponsored by Avery to attend the Evo Conference : The Evolution of Women in Social Media. It was an extremely enjoyable conference, the setting and venue in Park City were perfection, and I was very impressed. The two ladies who put on the event Rachael Herrscher and Jyl Johnson Pattee are dynamite, and I left the conference feeling incredibly inspired being around such a large group of fine women.

A few of my favorite highlights from the event included:

  • Seeing how social media and the internet has made a huge difference in helping people grant children wishes for the Make-a-Wish Foundation. The quote that stuck with me from that address was, "Courage is not the act of fear, but acting in site of it." - Mark Twain. It was an incredibly moving address, and my heart goes out to that foundation and what they stand for.
  • The closing keynote address about Authenticity by two inspirational women - Karen from Chookooloonks and BrenĂ© Brown from Ordinary Courage. I took copious notes, and there were many things that stuck with me including, "What is your intention?" In life... in everything...
Keep your eyes peeled for the Evo conference coming up next year, it is definitely a great one to attend. Thanks to all involved and the wonderful and talented speakers.

So glad you enjoyed the conference! What an awesome recap post.

I look at the pic you took (with your phone no less!) of salmon and it takes me back to that amazing food workshop luncheon. Mmmmm! Can't wait to create something bigger and better next year and definitely hope to see you back. I almost became a foodie after attending it :D.

Thanks for all you contributed to the vibe of the conference! Looking forward to getting to know you better.

As one of the few men at Evo I can say that from a male point of view the conference was every bit as inspiring and motivating. Finally, a conference with SUBSTANCE.
