Year round learning for web and digital professionals

Web Directions Stories–share yours

Web Directions has of course been a huge part of my life, over coming up on 20 years now. Recently we received an email from one of our online attendees about how a Web Directions conference impacted their life.

This will be my first Web Directions conference since 2012. That was a life changing conference for me, changed my entire career path!

I was a web developer for a SEO-powered lead gen company that did many, many bad things to the internet. It was Relly Annett-Baker’s part on content strategy that really opened my eyes. After that conference, I turned my focus to making the internet a better place. I even went freelance for two years, doing a mix of content strategy and web development… and the lessons I learned at that conference still resonate with me.

And while the impact may not be quite as large for many, we know it has played a part in quite a few folks’ lives as well–from getting their first job, to meeting their life partner and a whole lot in between.

When we hear these stories, often years later, and particularly after the challenges of the last 3 years, knowing that what we’ve worked so hard on over the years has had a positive impact on people’s lives and makes a real difference. This inspires us to do even more!

Share your Web Directions Story

With a return to our Summit in person this year, we’d love to hear from you if we’ve had a positive impact on your life! We’d even like to share some of these (we can even do so anonymously) if you’d be willing to let us do so.

Just let us know your story in the form below, including whether you’d be happy for us to share it too!
