8 years in WordPress

Last night, at the WordPress London meetup group, I had the pleasure of telling the story of my time in WordPress.

I wanted the talk to be honest, not just a typical success story, but a ‘warts and all’ account of my journey from starting out in the web, through freelancing and to starting an agency.

It covers leadership, politics, freelancing, agency ownership, the future and the highs and lows along the way.

The event was live-streamed on Twitter and you can watch it below (I’m on at 12:40). Keep watching for JJ’s talk too, it was excellent.


Thanks to Dan, Gary, Diane and Paul for organising a great event. If you’re involved in WordPress and live in the London area, then I’d highly recommend coming along to WordPress London.
