WordPress Community Interview With Blessing Mpofu and James van der Hoven

I am publishing two interviews this week because, well, basically I screwed up. I have been randomly choosing people to contact after looking at recent WordCamp sites. I was looking at the WordCamp Cape Town 2016 website and I just happened to contact Blessing and James within a few hours of each other. They both replied that they would be happy to chat.

Blessing Mpofu

Blessing works as a Team Director and Digital Media Manager. He also blogs about inspiration and leadership at blessing.im. On his blog About page, Blessing states the following – “You haven’t led until you lead people who, in a sense, don’t really have to follow you, but do so by choice”.

Blessing is also working toward his degree in Theology.

You may notice a slightly different format to the video. Blessing wanted to use a video conferencing service called Zoom. It worked great! It looks like each person on the “call” can record their own video. There are some other nice options as well.

James van der Hoven

James is the owner of Vane Digital and gave a talk at WordCamp Cape Town 2016 titled “Integrating OroCRM into WooCommerce”. He leads a team who are “capable of implementing the best performing ecommerce solutions for our clients and to ensure the smooth integration and automation of their business processes“.

More videos from WordCamp Cape Town 2016 can be seen here.
