WordPress AZ representin’ at WCMSP!

Last weekend I attended and spoke at WordCamp Minneapolis/St. Paul. This was my second trip to the midwestern city and I was glad to visit again!

My first talk ever AND at this camp!

One year ago, WCMSP gave me my first opportunity to speak at a conference. It was only fitting to return the following year and I’m so glad I did!

Tessa, me, and Patrick!

First off, I’d like to give a huge shout out to Tessa! She was the head ringleader for WCMSP this year and really did a great job. Thank you, Tessa, for all of your hard work you poured into planning WordCamp!

The venue was great! The McNamara Alumni Center was an absolute top notch spot.

I truly believe venues are a huge deal for conferences and I was glad WCMSP made this of the utmost importance.And with that, the hotel was amazing!! Oh em jee, I LOVED it! Graduate Hotels have their branding on point. Or maybe I’m just totes their target market, but I don’t care! Graduate Minneapolis had a collegiate/alum brand going on. Even their keycards were branded as student i.d. cards! Oh, it was adorbs! Apparently, there’s a Graduate Hotel in my hometown which I now have to make an excuse to stay at. 😜

raquel landefeld, wcmsp, wordcamp minneapolisI was super please with my talk! Timing worked well, my voice (as it often doesn’t cooperate) was on point, and I really felt engaged with the audience! Check out my slides.

My talks are always about Community. This is still the one message I preach.
