#TBT Venture Event Manager Plugin Is Now Available At The WordPress Repository

Granted, today’s headline is definitely a current event and while having the plugin available at the WordPress repository is a big step, it did bring to mind the past seven years of progress with The Venture Platform that led to this latest development.

It seems like it was only yesterday when the entire platform was just getting started:

An Invitation To Be At The Forefront Of A Paradigm Shift

We enjoyed steady and rapid growth between each major upgrade cycle. Within the last year, the specter of losing Net Neutrality helped fuel the largest cycle of improvements that helped lead to launching the event management component as a standalone, free WordPress plugin.

When Caution Pays Off

The WordPress Plugin Directory is the largest directory of free and open source WordPress plugins. With more than 70 million current WordPress users, it’s nice to know they all have direct access and can automatically install it right from their plugin admin panels.

Venture Event Manager

Everyone on my team is excited to see where this new endeavor goes and to see how it supports our ongoing work with The Venture Platform.

About Drew McManus

"I hear that every time you show up to work with an orchestra, people get fired." Those were the first words out of an executive's mouth after her board chair introduced us. That executive is now a dear colleague and friend but the day that consulting contract began with her orchestra, she was convinced I was a hatchet-man brought in by the board to clean house.

I understand where the trepidation comes from as a great deal of my consulting and technology provider work for arts organizations involves due diligence, separating fact from fiction, interpreting spin, as well as performance review and oversight. So yes, sometimes that work results in one or two individuals "aggressively embracing career change" but far more often than not, it reinforces and clarifies exactly what works and why.

In short, it doesn't matter if you know where all the bodies are buried if you can't keep your own clients out of the ground, and I'm fortunate enough to say that for more than 15 years, I've done exactly that for groups of all budget size from Qatar to Kathmandu.

For fun, I write a daily blog about the orchestra business, provide a platform for arts insiders to speak their mind, keep track of what people in this business get paid, help write a satirical cartoon about orchestra life, hack the arts, and love a good coffee drink.
