Podcasting was a massive trend in 2014, virtual summits are in 2015. They are online events, bringing together industry leaders to share their advice in interviews that can be consumed for free.
The WP Summit is such an event, featuring world-leading experts on WordPress and online business. The line-up includes Jason Cohen (founder of WP Engine), Rand Fishkin (founder of Moz), Oli Gardner (co-founder of Unbounce), or Dan Norris (founder of WP Curve).
For me as the host, this summit was a powerhouse of lessons on leadership, interacting with true leaders, and organizing a global event with massive organic growth.
The goal for the WP Summit was, to become the single best event, educating beginning WordPress users and online entrepreneurs on building powerful websites and scaling their businesses.
And it turned out to become just that. Let me share three of the major lessons I learned from organizing this event.
