From organizing get-togethers, to hosting workshops and providing resources — our Global Leaders are the engines that power the Webflow community — and our team is so grateful to work with our Global Leaders every day.

Recently, we sat down with three of our Global Leaders; Fiorella Cisneros, Théo Roland, and Isabel Edwards, to catch up, learn about their Global Leader journeys, and see what they’re excited about this upcoming year. 

Fiorella Cisneros

Lima, Peru 

Why did you become a Global Leader? 

I became a Global Leader with the aim of bringing visibility to the Spanish-speaking community that was getting started with or already had experience with Webflow. As I got started, I realized that there were many people using the tool in my region alone, giving us a great jumping off point for planning networking meetups, facilitating collaboration, and creating community. 

How has the Webflow Global Leader program supported you? 

The Webflow Global Leader program and team members have been so encouraging to me and the Webflow Peru community. With their help, our community members have so much more confidence to participate, present, and be involved. As a Global Leader, the Webflow team and their resources have been great, providing guidance for any questions or projects I might have.

What are you looking forward to in 2024? 

This year, we hope to continue hosting the different talks we started recently. We also want to spin up workshops for entrepreneurs who want to learn about Webflow, as well as students and professionals who are choosing to grow their skills and learn more  about no-code tools.

What advice would you give to someone who wants to become a Global Leader? 

I highly recommend listening to the community and making them feel part of the entire process from start to finish. Our community has responded well to getting the opportunity to choose the topics of interest they want to delve into or activities they want to do together.

Théo Roland

Paris, France

What does being a Global Leader mean to you? 

I have always had a passion for sharing Webflow with those around me — whether it’s been via YouTube, Meetups, or coworking. For me, being a Global Leader means being the cornerstone between the French-speaking community, the Webflow team, and other communities at large. 

What has been the best part of being a Global Leader? 

Before the Global Leader program, the French Webflow Community already existed on its own, mostly online on Slack, Gathertown, or Discord.  

With the end of the pandemic, there was a huge need to take things offline, meet, and share our experiences. The Global Leader program made it possible to not only strengthen digital events with the support of Webflow but also to create real moments on a larger scale.

I’ve really appreciated how the Webflow Community team and Global Leader program has been so communicative and helpful in getting our community off the ground.  Thanks to the Global Leader program, we’ve organized 30 online French-speaking events — such as mentoring, office hours, and lives —  and around 10 in-person events including coworking, meetups, and watch parties. 

What are your goals for 2024? 

The big goal for 2024 is to create regular meetings and to facilitate more events and initiatives from Webflow France members. Currently, we have a schedule of weekly online meetings, and we’re looking to add several coworking sessions, meetups ,and different events, such as esports and other types of meetings. 

For us, 2023 was the genesis of creating Webflow community events in France, and 2024 is the year of diversifying the types of events for our community.

What advice would you give to someone who wants to become a Global Leader? 

Here’s my four guiding principles as I’ve helped build out the Webflow France community: 

  1. Build your community without worrying about size. 
  2. Create for yourself and for those already here.
  3. An interesting and caring community grows on its own. 
  4. Celebrate events together and share without expecting anything in return.

Isabel Edwards

Manchester, England

Why did you become a Global Leader? 

It's hard to put into words how much the Webflow community has helped me over the past 6 years — I've gained lifelong friends, taken huge steps in my career, and learned invaluable design skills. I was so eager to give back, and the Global Leader program was the perfect way to support my local Webflow community here in Manchester.

What has been the best part of being a Global Leader? 

For me, the program has grown my confidence, allowed me to build the best support network I could ask for, and presented new and exciting work opportunities. Perhaps most importantly, it’s provided a sense of fulfillment that I've been searching for since starting my career in web design.

What are you looking forward to in 2024? 

I'm so excited for what we have planned this year! Me and my fellow FlowMCR organizers are teaming up with our friends in Leeds to plan a huge event for the Webflow community in the North of England this summer. With our combined forces (or should I say superpowers) — who knows what's possible? Stay tuned!
