Meet the Speakers: WordPress Enterprise Gap Meetup

Person, Photography, Dancing

What’s the WordPress enterprise gap? It’s the distance between how WordPress is seen, and how effective it is for enterprise users.

We believe that enterprise companies can move faster and deliver better digital experiences for their customers by embracing the power of the open web and open source.

​We also believe that WordPress is the best platform to enable this, and we must work together as an industry to close the gap between WordPress as a platform and ecosystem, and the needs of its enterprise customers.

​Organised by Human Made and friends, we’re hosting a meetup in Bangkok in advance of WordCamp Asia on 16th Feb. We’ve invited people who are creating and executing solutions in the WordPress Enterprise space, and we hope that coming together will inspire us all to collaborate to move WordPress forward as a project, a brand, and most importantly, as a community. 

Without further ado, let’s meet the speakers!
