Have you ever learned something you really needed to know, made a valuable contact, discovered a better way to do things, decided on a future direction, as a result of attending a conference?
Have you found ways to save money for your employer or company? Avoided a mistake or taken advantage of an opportunity that was good for business?
I’d like to hear about it.
I’m writing an article about the value of technical conferences, especially from the business viewpoint. Please send me your anecdotes (could be one sentence long) about dramatic value that you’ve obtained from attending a conference, or if you are the employer or manager, the value of sending your employees to conferences.
You can leave comments here on this blog post, or write to me privately on my contact page.
