Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - How to Attend a Conference

« Are You a Social Capitalist? | Main | Words Matter - Upon Trajan's Column »


@Jeremy - You will find that all the points apply to any part of the conference, including the social aspects.

@Chris - extremely social perception (ESP) sounded good on you. Ditto, looking forward to meeting you!

Actually, you and Scott Monty reminded me with your posts that I should give it some love, too. Can't wait to meet you.

I would add:

Attend as many social events during the conference as possible.

If a company sponsors an event one evening and you managed to get an invite, do your best to go to it. This is where the real networking happens. You can get many ideas that are not openly spoken about in the sessions from the people you meet.
