Make a commitment to limit the use of your phone. We are in a digital age now and certain apps can be distracting when you are supposed to be listening. It can be tempting to take notes on your phone or tablet, but writing on a note pad may be more beneficial as it removes the option of reading messages or searching through your favourite apps.
Communication is Key
Talk to people! Conferences are important because they enable you to network and showcase your brand. If you ever find yourself in a moment of boredom, you aren’t making the most of your opportunity to interact with others and potential clients. If this is the case, find someone and start talking! You’ll be in a room full of people from all different backgrounds and it provides a perfect opportunity to learn from others.
Make sure that you stay hydrated and energised so that you are able to power through a long day. There is no point in going to a conference if you will be unable to concentrate because you are hungry and tired. Take advantage of the buffet, canapé’s or the endless supply of coffee.
Research all of the speakers ahead of the event and this will give you an idea of what to expect and who to look out for. This will keep you focused and excited about the day and enable you to engage in conversations with confidence.
