To this moment in time, I still can’t believe the team over at Big Orange Heart did the second Wordfest in 6 months. The first one was in January and was excellent. The other one was on Friday (July 23rd) and was even better.
I was glad that Goldstein Media was able to be a micro sponsor and that I was able to help out, even just a little, with the digital swag bag and helping throughout the day.
Part Deux of Wordfest had more mental health topics than the first one, I think, and it was very much welcome.
The core team and all the volunteers did a great job putting on a great event.
Rumor has it that they will probably be keeping up with the cadence of 2 a year, just not so close together.
I hope that I’ll be able to help out more on the next one.
Not only did they throw a great event. They raised over $11k for A Big Orange Heart, which is a non-profit aimed at helping remote workers with their mental health.
It was all recorded and you can go back and watch the sessions at WordFest.Live.
