Before submitting a speaker application for the WordPress Essex meetup, here are a few bits of information you should know.
As per the standard WordPress community, we do NOT pay speakers, nor cover speaker expenses, such as hotel, travel or food.
When speaking at the event; you agree to abide by the WordPress Essex code of conduct.
As our event is typically two and a half hours on one evening each month, we don’t have a speakers dinner. We do typically have 30 minutes of networking before the opening remarks, and an opportunity to network after the presentations have finished.
We don’t have the ability for specific child care support, though youngsters who ideally won’t disturb the presentations are welcome to attend.
Our venue is a university, so is sufficiently accessible.
Even if we have agreed for you to speak at an event, we still require speakers to fill out the form below. Only when this is done do we consider the application to speak to be formally submitted, so that it may be accepted. The information submitted here is used on our website, meetup.com and for other aspects of organising and running the event.
If you would like further support with your application please feel free to contact us. We are a very accessible team that want to support both new and seasoned speakers from in and around the WordPress community. As a team, we’re available to chat on Slack, you can also catch us on Twitter, or you can message the organisers directly via our meetup page.
