December 21, 2016 — Cath Beaton (Phase Creative) and Troy Dean present their ideas and experiences of how they have developed and grown as individuals in their respective businesses by being prepared to get out of their comfort zone.
The amazing online community spirit that is synonymous with WordPress has allowed them to feel supported whilst they navigate the tricky terrain of growing up as business owners. WordPress truly is unique in that it unites people and allows niche communities to develop very quickly. This sense of belonging fosters collaboration and nurtures relationships which quite often result in new friendships, business partnerships and enormous self-development. Their talk will inspire other WordPress users to find support in their own online communities so they too can evolve and develop in whatever field they choose. They will also touch on some of the technology behind this growth (BuddyPress and bbPress).
