Make the most of that conference

by on
in Workplace Communication

At your next professional conference, balance the time spent in formal sessions with informal time talking to others in your field.

Three ways to reap the benefits of a conference, beyond the tracks:

1. Hallway huddles: Between sessions, build relationships with smart people working in similar roles.

2. Round-table discussion: Pull up a chair next to new people at every meal.

Sometimes, you’ll get more from these sit-downs than from a formal conference session.

3. Party talk: You’ll be tired. But resist the urge to head back to your room at the end of the day. Make a beeline for that new, interesting person you want to meet.

To get those hallway and meal-time conversations started, ask the other person something related to the conference, such as, “What do you think of the speakers so far?” suggests Eduard Ezeanu, founder of Conversation Starters.
