Pizza and beer!
Got your attention?
Nearly everybody who's had anything to do with web design has heard of WordPress. Not so many people have heard of Joomla!, and those who have may have heard of it at the end of a discussion that began with "WordPress doesn't do that ..." or "I can build that for you in WordPress for $x ..."
Many Joomla! professionals have trouble getting their foot in the door with clients who assume that WordPress must be the solution to their problems because that's the only CMS they've heard of. It's time to change that.
Russell Searle will give a short and sweet (I promise!) talk aimed at giving you the confidence and ammunition to tell your prospects something like this:
"If you are sure your business will only ever need a blog site, then by all means go with WordPress. But if you think that some day you may want to publish your sales, marketing or business activities on your web site, or you want to retain your options to turbocharge your site to make it stand out from the crowd without costing you an arm and a leg, then here are good business reasons why you should look at Joomla!"
We'll also have a crack at scheduling an agenda for the year ahead, another round table discussion about members' problems and needs, case studies, lightning talks if anybody wants to sound off ...
Oh, did I forget to mention that there'll be pizzas and a drinks bar?
