WordCamp Asia 2024 Expert Panel: How WordPress can better serve the needs of Enterprise

At Human Made we’re deeply committed to the growing of our global WordPress community and we’re very proud to have been able to support by organising and speaking at every global WordCamp to date. I’m really excited to bring WordPress for Enterprise – a topic that has been on the forefront of Human Made’s initiatives for the past year, to the stage of WordCamp Asia 2024.

At WordCamp Asia 2023 in Bangkok we hosted the first WordPress Enterprise Gap Meetup. After the event we decided to put our heads together with other Enterprise WordPress Agencies and to work to improve WordPress’ image in the Enterprise space. The Scale Consortium was founded later that year.

Just a month ago we also hosted WordPress for Enterprise – a virtual conference where we heard from some of the global brands doing incredible things with WordPress like Harvard, PMC and The Times.

On Saturday, March 9th, I will be joined on stage in Taipei by prominent leaders in the Enterprise WordPress space. This panel discussion will focus on strategies for fostering greater enterprise adoption of WordPress.

It’s my privilege to be joined on stage by Kimberly Cole, General Manager for Europe, Yoast, Rahul Bansal – CEO of RT Camp, and Lorna Lim – Senior Account Strategist at Human Made. Together we’ll talk about how we can encourage more enterprise companies to choose WordPress, which in turn increases investments back into the wider ecosystem, thus creating a virtuous cycle of growth and success for our community and for enterprise WordPress as a whole.

If you’re not lucky enough to be attending in person this year, there will also be opportunities to follow along online. But if you’re going to be at WordCamp Asia, come along and say hello!
