To get the most from conference networking this month, I use the social media tool www.LinkedIn.com to explore the backgrounds of fellow speakers. After examining their profiles, I reach out to those who might help me achieve my goals. With a Linked In connection we already ‘know’ each other before the conference. At the PMI conference www.pmiglc.org I found published authors, agile project managers, leadership instructors and an expert in web-based meeting tools. I now know what they look like from their profile picture and will seek them out so we can connect in person.
As I surround myself with people I admire, the law of attraction will bring other valuable network opportunities in my direction. Who knows what surprises I will uncover!
