Chris Brogan Helps Me Get the Most out of My Conferences

Conferences in 2015


an image of Conference file000282826464.jpgIn March, I’m heading to San Diego for two conferences.  I’m attending Marketing Mayhem Live and Social Media World.  This is really exciting for me, I’ve NEVER travelled to mainland USA and I’m going to be meeting up with so many people who I know from my online communities.  One of the people I’m most looking forward to meeting is Chris Brogan and to help me even more, he’s given some great advice just before I leave on how to get the most out of my conferences.

Are You Getting The Most Out of Your Conferences?

“I had a wonderful time at Michael Port’s Heroic Public Speaking event. There was a lot of value offered for those who attended. As a speaker, I loved sharing what I knew with the folks who were there. But I also operated as an attendee, listening and absorbing, and also getting what I could out of meeting and talking with other attendees. I had a secret opportunity: almost a dozen people there were friends as well as attendees. So I got a LOT out of my time there.

This post couldn’t have been more timely and exactly what I needed than if I written Chris and asked for some advice.  I’ve got some great tips on what to do, quite a bit of work to do to prepare myself for my conferences and I know I won’t return home trying to figure out what “three pigs in a tree” stands for.  

I’ll be writing about my trip (have I mentioned how excited I am yet) and I will definitely let you know how the post helped me.  I hope if you are in San Diego in late March, we meet up!

    Chris makes some awesome points. All of them are helpful, but I think number four is best for me. Connecting with a small group of people before everything gets going would really help to lessen the overwhelming feeling I get in a huge crowd.
