rise community

RISE is a vibrant global community dedicated to exploring the future of marketing. The marketing profession is changing with bullet-speed. In our community, we are working on our continuous journey of relevance by teaching and encouraging each other.

Our community is kind, generous, and professional. You will be respected and valued. I think this screenshot sums it up!

Our topics and projects shift as the world progresses, but current themes in the community include:

  • Active experiments in the metaverse
  • A co-created book project
  • AI-generated content and art
  • Web3, NFTs and tokenized economies
  • Changing consumer behavior
  • Evolving social media platforms
  • Podcasts and content strategy
  • Personal development, speaking, personal branding

… and much more.

Our learning environment is also driven by free webinars, debates, and special live events with acclaimed experts like Philip Kotler, Tom Peters, Ann Handley, and David Meerman Scott.

We also have a lot of fun with meet-ups, either live or in the metaverse!
