The WordPress community is unlike most industries. Instead of being full of trade-secrets and competitors— we find ways to collaborate and share our success with our peers.

While communities like The Admin Bar are a great place to network with your peers online, there's a whole “real” world out there to explore too!

Adam Silver (host of the Kitchen Sink WP podcast) joins us to talk about how he's made the conscious decision to regularly attend WordCamps (and meetups and more) as an investment in his company.

In fact— he's now attending around 10 a year (and is an organizer for his local WordCamp in Raleigh, as well as WordCamp US).

In this episode, titled ‘WordPress in the Flesh', we take a deep-dive into these events and talk about the benefits of attending events like this in person, what to expect, what you can gain, tips for speaking, and a whole lot more.

On top of that, Adam tells us about his exciting new project ‘Backup Speaker' and we uncover ways you (as an agency owner) could use this service to help land more speaking gigs at industry events near you.
