May 5, 2017

The Twitterati shared some great advice in this chat for conference goers everywhere:

  • When you pack, make sure you have comfortable shoes and a sweater or jacket
  • Don’t be afraid to approach people—speakers or anyone—they are open
  • “Talk to people, not your phone” (@ClaireAgutter)
  • Live tweeting is a great way to make notes for yourself
  • Pen and paper are still popular and useful for note-taking
  • Take photos
  • Don’t be a wallflower
  • When you return to work, try to keep your enthusiasm in context
  • Share what you’ve learned

And, speaking of sharing, here are all the tweets from the chat for you. Happy conferencing! 

Join us again this Friday for our next #HDIchat
