Conference Season: Proven Techniques to make you a Pro in the Game
1. Attend small ones or even local Mom meet ups just so to get the hang of connecting and yes, socializing with style and confidence. I have attended a few and it has helped a lot.
2. Seek out and connect with those attending PRE-conference. Twitter is a great venue to do this. Then join in on any sites pre-customized for the event to see whose attending. It's always helpful to see a familiar face in a crowded room.
3. Now the best tool to survive a conference, is to go with the flow. Connect. Connect. And Connect. Socialize! Who knows what opportunity it will open up for you. Best of all BE YOURSELF. Don't be afraid to have fun!
4. Last but not the least, DON'T FORGET your BUSINESS CARDS! And make sure to trade them every chance you get. You'll thank yourself for it. Trust me.
