Interested in being a speaker?

We are especially interested in local members who have something to share. There is no experience needed, and plenty of help to get you set up for speaking.

You can also attend Speaker Training on the 4th Wednesday of the month. These events are specifically designed for local members who want to speak at WPTO events and WordCamp. There are only 3 sessions left, so be sure to come and get your questions answered.

Deadline for speaker applications is 31 July ’17.

Need a hotel? We have a room block with Holiday Inn on Carlton Street. The group code is embedded in the link. That code shows up AFTER you choose the dates for your stay.

Stay tuned for lots more updates.

We’re still working on cosmetics and some functionality for the site. We have blog posts coming, social media updates, and lots of content. You can RSVP Yes to this event to get updates. That will be super helpful when we open ticket sales.
