Wordfest 2021

WordFest Live is a 24 hour celebration for those of us in the remote work community with a heathy dose of WordPress learning thrown in.

WordFest is organized by Big Orange Heart in support of mental health and well-being for remote workers. This topic is important to us here at Watchful, and so we’re proud to be a regional sponsor for 2021.

More than just seminars online

WordFest Live is free (register here), and will be delivered via Big Orange Heart’s interactive video conference platform. In addition to the scheduled talks, this platform makes it easy to interact with your friends and colleagues.

And the virtual sponsor hall makes it easy to video conference with other remote workers and make new friends and colleagues.

Join us in the Watchful tent!

As a sponsor, Watchful will have a virtual tent that will allow you to chat with us in a group-based video conference. You can also schedule 1-on-1 follow ups in the platform.

We’d love to meet all the Watchers around the world, so feel free to drop by our tent.

We are sponsoring the Americas section of the festival. This means our tent will be open between 12PM to 6PM EST (UTC -5), this Friday, January 22.
