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!
