Arrive from 6:30pm for a 6:45pm start.
This month's meetup is targeted at WordPress beginner users.
WordPress developers and advanced users are encouraged to attend next month's meetup (March) instead.
The agenda is as follows:
How to Add Content to your Website - for WordPress Beginners (Andrew Davis)
Andrew will run an introductory presentation showing business users (i.e. non-techies) how to add content - such as text, images, videos and maps - to WordPress-based websites.
Andrew's company Boxless provides IT consulting and training on WordPress, and on "cloud" services such as Google Apps and Salesforce.com.
How To Write For An Online Audience - Vikki Maver
This talk will help business owners learn how to create online content that gets results.
With so much emphasis on web design, writing effective content is often overlooked.
Vikki will explain why specialist writing techniques are needed for the web – and show you how to make your website message clear and compelling.
Since 2008, Vikki has been training other professionals on how to improve their writing at work through her business Refresh Marketing. Vikki finds helping people improve their writing skills extremely rewarding and loves meeting interesting people along the way.

WordPress Beginners' Q&A (Time Permitting)
Bring along your question (on a WordPress beginners topic), and we'll hopefully be giving attendees an opportunity to ask their question to the group.
Please note that this Q&A session will only be run if we have time after the two presentations.
Open Discussion and Socialising
At the nearby Post Office Hotel in Richmond.
