WordPress London Meetup - May

  • May 26, 2016 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Sorry for the very late notice but #wpldn is on this month!  Please help spread the word via Twitter, Facebook, smoke signals, general drum banging, whatever it takes so no-one misses out!  

Missed a #wpldn recently?  Catch up at wpldn.uk

How to grow from a one-man-band into an agency.

Taking the leap and loving it.

• 
Building a team, how, who and what to look out for
• Attracting and retaining great clients
• Selling professionally and effectively
• Avoiding bad clients
• Managing Projects effectively
• Developing a culture
• Celebrate the wins
• Learn from the mistakes

Presented by Ben Maden.  Ben has been running Matter Solutions for 16 years, from 2000 to 2006 he was pretty much a one man band, he'd had a try at hiring staff without much success.  When he moved to Brisbane in 2006 he knew he was settled and wanted to step the business up.  He tried a few times to build a team, and failed.  In 2010 he finally got it right and he hasen’t looked back.  Follow him @bmaden

Other speakers TBC.

Follow #wpldn on Twitter for all the latest and like us on Facebook to take the conversation further.  Have a talk you'd like to present?  We'd love to hear from you: [masked]

    Excellent meetup this month. Ben's talk was really interesting and very relevant. At first I wasn't sure about how WPdating was going to work, but, as Dan pointed out, it's good to be pushed outside of your comfort zone and spoke to some really interesting people. Perhaps it might be an idea to match newcomers to established members another time?

    • Dan M.

      Thanks for the feedback Ryan, great idea to match newcomers with existing members. I'm glad the #WPdating worked out for you :)
