Feeling Rusty? Tips for In-Person Conference Connections

Prior to the pandemic, I spent over a decade presenting my signature “Art of the Schmooze” session to help meeting participants make the most of the events they attended. Even then, it was possible to find information with one click and we counted “likes” as engagement - so making an effort to leave our homes had to mean something. 

That something was the promise of amazing content and quality connections. But designing engaging events did not and does not happen by chance. Only through thoughtful and strategic planning will this promise become a reality. 

I work with organizations to help them design engaging events (in-person or virtual). I believe there are many strategies participants can put into practice themselves to create quality conference connections.
