7 pointers for educators who hate conference networking

  1. 1. Picture this… You’re psyched about your first conference session.
  2. 2. The speaker is basically the equivalent of Bill Gates.
  3. 3. You’re sitting in the back row with at least 10 open seats and then...
  4. 4. Someone else walks in and sits right beside you.
  5. 5. They immediately introduce themselves and, not wanting to seem rude, you engage in small talk. But, the chatter doesn’t end there.
  6. 6. They have a single goal. The dreaded sales pitch.
  7. 7. Don’t be “that guy or gal.” Do this instead: šOffer meaningful conversation šEstablish deeper connections šGet results that benefit both sides
  8. 8. Step 1: Scan the Conference Program. This allows you to do two things: 1) Plan meetings around keynotes and breakout sessions you won’t miss. 2) Scout presenters and speakers you want to meet.
  9. 9. Step 2: Know the host city. Knowing things to do in the host city doesn’t mean you’re a walking encyclopedia. It enriches conversation. Most folks devote a few hours exploring life outside of their hotels. Provide value through recommendations. • Points of Interest • Local Events • Good Eats
  10. 10. Trip Advisor, Yelp and Groupon can get you up to speed on the local area.
  11. 11. Step 3: Reach out to conference goers early.
  12. 12. Whatever you do, make it easy by suggesting meeting locations and dates/ times. *Not sure who’s going? Download the conference app. Conferences often provide a list of attendees who have agreed to share contact info like their Twitter handles, LinkedIn profiles, etc. Hi Alyssa, Trust all is well. Noticed a tweet you posted yesterday that said you were heading to ISTE. I’m attending too with a couple of folks from the district and wanted to check-in to see if you’d like to join us for dinner. We have reservations 7pm Monday night if you’re free.
  13. 13. Step 4: Start tracking conference #hashtags one week in advance. Conference #hashtags are a valuable piece of digital real estate even if you aren’t a tweeter. • Conference organizers tweet important updates • Presenters often tweet about their sessions
  14. 14. Step 5: Create a game plan for the expo hall.
  15. 15. Make the most out your experience in advance: šReview conference sponsors šMap out vendors you want to speak with šSchedule time and demos between keynotes/sessions *Hint: A list of sponsors is usually on the conference website or printed program. Also, be sure to connect with your vendors early. Time to chat with them tends to go quickly.
  16. 16. Step 6: Check-in with your current vendors or partners. Many vendors host outside events (cocktail hours, dinners, after parties) and offer exclusive discounts or conference passes for clients.
  17. 17. Step 7: Spread the love. Merriam-Webster defines: Relationship: (noun re·la·tion·ship) the way in which two or more people or things are connected.
  18. 18. Don’t go to a conference with the mindset of being “connected,” go to a conference with the mindset of being a “connector.”
  19. 19. Have an acquaintance who can help someone you meet? Make an introduction. Share ideas. Not only could this lead to a returned favor but, more importantly, it provides value to the world outside of you.
