Top Ways to Survive Conference Season
I stumbled across this great post by Peter Shankman called Top Eight Ways to Survive Conference Season. In it, Shankman (who travels 300,000 miles per year consulting, advising and speaking) offers his insights on the best ways to get through a conference, now that the summer is over and conference season is nigh.
While his 8 tips are a good start, there are also a number of tips in the comments on the post that make it a worthwhile read.
Conferences can be valuable learning and networking experiences. However, for the unguided, they can also be places to pick up a nasty flu virus and one or more terrible hangovers, especially for the unprepared or uninitiated.
Do you have any tips to offer conference goers – especially newbies attending their first conference? We’d love to hear them! Please leave a comment.
