In this captivating episode of the Academy Committee special series, Emma Grace Myers, Community Engagement Manager at iMiller Public Relations (iMPR), engages in an insightful discussion with Phillip Koblence, host of Nomad Futurist. Transitioning directly from college to the digital infrastructure world two years ago, Myers has been on a journey of growth. Alongside her role as a Board Member and Advisor for the Nomad Futurists, she holds a unique position as the head of the Audience Quality Assurance committee, actively contributing to shaping and promoting the curriculum of the Nomad Futurist Academy — a dedicated resource tailored for emerging data center professionals.

When reflecting on her motivation while working with fellow committee heads, Myers expresses she is driven by collaborating with remarkable people:

“It’s inspiring to be around passionate people because that stirs up that passionate side in you.”

Discussing the experience of building an academy from the ground up, Myers enthusiastically proclaims:

“The freedom that’s come with this blank slate has been the most surprising or thrilling part of it for me because when the information does come in or content is submitted, we get to decide how it’s reviewed.”

Myers remarks on what has made her passionate about propelling the industry forward and dedicating her time to the Academy:

“The amount of conversations I have had with strangers around my age at coffee shops about the data center industry, who have no idea what it is… And then I just think wait until the Academy is launched. And there’s one link that I’ll get to provide them. It’s comprehensive, there are no learning gaps, and it’s all centralized in one free online platform to be.”

Emma Grace Myers’ episode expands upon how the Nomad Futurist Foundation is bringing its mission to fruition through the creation of the Academy.
