Speaking at WordCamp Fayetteville gives you a chance to share your knowledge, to give back to the local WordPress community, to build authority for you and your brand, to meet new people, and to be part of something wonderful.
Everyone knows something that somebody else doesn’t know! We need speakers who can help the most beginner of WordPress users in our 101 Track. We also need speakers who can share their knowledge on a myriad of WordPress-related topics for mid-level and expert WordPress users including bloggers, small business, nonprofits, educators, developers, and designers.
What do you want to share with your fellow WordCampers this year?
What’s a good WordPress session?
WordCamp presentations need to have these qualities:
- Directly relate to WordPress in some way
- Have practical takeaways for the audience.
- Be enough material to fill an approximate 40-minute session with 10 minutes of question/answer.
- Be adaptable to a slide presentation (will be required of all speakers)
Consider who uses WordPress and what that audience might need to know … just relate it directly to WordPress and you’ve got a pitch!
Apart from that, WordCamp is a chance to share and learn. WordCampers may be bloggers, entrepreneurs, business owners who use a WordPress site, students, professional WordPress developers, artists, web designers… anyone who uses WordPress or is thinking about doing so.
Please note that speaking is a volunteer contribution and you will receive your ticket free for WordCamp Fayetteville 2017. We cannot, however, provide travel stipends for out of town speakers. WordPress is an open source community and speakers will be required to submit their PowerPoint to share with the greater WordPress community.
