Paul Lacey

Hi, I’m Paul, WordPress expert, designer, speaker & podcaster, Guinness World Record holder.


I help niche agencies and leading WordPress / tech-industry brands, design & develop beautiful websites. Brands I have worked with include GeneratePress, Beaver Builder, Pentagram, getronics & Church of England.

Design & UX for the GeneratePress website & starter templates

Between 2017 - 2020 I co-ran a design agency.  One of our proudest moments was designing the website & starter templates for the GeneratePress WordPress theme. 

Designing for Beaver Builder & Beaver Themer

I’m currently working with the team at Beaver Builder designing a series of templates, rows & elements for the Beaver Builder, Beaver Themer & Assistant Pro plugins. 

Sharing knowledge & experience

My passion is sharing knowledge through public speaking both online and on the stage about my insights & experiences in the web industry and in overcoming mental health life challenges as an entrepreneur.

How giving back to community gave me strength to move forward

A heartwarming story told at Agency Transformation Live 2019 of how sometimes in our darkest and most lonely moments, those people we helped sometimes come back to save us.


If I could scale up business,
A true entrepreneur,
If I could market more not less,
What would it all be for?

Podcasting & media

In May 2017 I sat terrified as I was about to record my first ever podcast interview with two of WordPress's most esteemed personalities Nathan Wrigley & David Waumsley on the WP Builds Podcast. Since then I've gone on to make over 100 appearances on top industry podcasts, virtual summits, live streams and YouTube channels worldwide.

Co-hosting the This Week in WordPress podcast

Along with my dear friend Nathan Wrigley (host of the WP Tavern Jukebox podcast), I co-host our popular This Week in WordPress podcast - a WordPress current affairs show streamed live to Facebook & YouTube and repurposed to an audio podcast.

Featured interview: The uGurus Digital Agency Show

One of my favourite appearances was being interviewed by uGurus founder Brent Weaver (an amazing interviewer) for his Digital Agency Show. The episode was called The power of finding your community and purpose.
