From influence to action – Evolve Events Creative Director, Anna Peters, named Events Influencer of the Year 2024 

We’re thrilled to announce the latest accolade for our Creative Director, Anna Peters, who has been awarded the prestigious title of Events Influencer of the Year at the Conference News Awards 2024. It’s a remarkable achievement, especially considering it’s her second consecutive win!

By highlighting the significant environmental benefits of train travel over flying, she has not only raised awareness but also inspired tangible change within the industry.

Her efforts have not only earned her recognition as a Power Green Champion 2023 but also secured her a spot among the 50 Most Influential People in the UK Event Industry in 2023.

At Evolve, we’re proud to follow Anna’s lead in embracing sustainability. From offering train travel options to our clients to joining Climate Perks and providing flight-free travel incentives for our employees, we’re committed to making a positive impact.

Anna’s dedication extends beyond environmental advocacy. She actively shares her knowledge with clients and industry peer through our newsletter and regular breakfast briefings, mentoring aspiring professionals through Fast Forward 15 and empowering voices within the events community.
