Time for another meet-up of we nomads known as WordPress Users Wales – and this time Chapter have kindly offered us somewhere to pitch up. Date: Weds 13th June. Time: 6.30 – 8.30pm. Room: Mediapoint, to the right at the top of the stairs.

Our theme is to be WordPress for education and for making money – and the interactive sessions will be around the ethics of making money online through teaching. Based on your feedback after the last meeting we will structure the discussion for this, more like we did at our first meet-up.

Now our speakers, who we are thrilled about:

Cathy Presland former government economist and head of strategy at the Welsh assembly, is now a business strategy and growth expert, who is very active online using WordPress. A queen of twitter, she has an incredible 27,ooo followers. If anyone can bring out your inner entrepreneur, then this lady can… she’s written books and produced videos and training programmes. Her theme will be WordPress and Wonga: 5 ways to make money on your WordPress site.
