13. If you’re uncomfortable putting yourself out there and introducing yourself to new people at a networking event, chances are others are too.
I can’t tell you how many people I’ve seen talk about how nervous they were about the Friday night social and introducing themselves to new people. HOWEVER, since everyone is in the same boat it means so much when you initiate conversations with people.
I’m thankful for all the wonderful people that I was able to connect with and all of the inspiring speakers. This conference happened to hit during a very good time in my career and reassured me while in the midst of taking some big risks (announcement next week!).
Have you attended a conference recently? What were some of the key takeaways for you and how did the conference help you grow?
