It’s a super interesting chat as we get into some basics that I get asked about a lot: How do run meetups, then grow this community and then run larger conferences. Luke did this and he drops a lot of knowledge on how he achieved it.

Listen on: iTunes / Podbean / Stitcher / Spotify / YouTube / Sign up for our newsletter for more info on getting you started running amazing events.

It’s time to introduce my co-host on the podcast James Sayer. James and me met at my second ever conference, which I ran in Bangkok six years ago and have been running events together ever since. In that time we have ran over 100 events together of all sizes in almost every country in Asia so it’s been a real adventure.

We hope you enjoy this ‘origin story’ recorded from Prague and Bangkok.
