I’ve known Maddy for about a year now, and our professional circles cross often. After noticing her ability for connecting with people in a networking setting, I invited her to apply as a speaker for WordCamp Chicago, which I organize each year. Maddy was able to find a great niche within an already specialized event, and put together an excellent presentation. I’d love to have her back again next year!
