#132: 10 Tips from Attending a Conference [Podcast]

Listen to this episode

To touch, to move, to inspire. This is a true gift through podcasting.

Modified from a quote I love by Aubrey Lynch on dance, but as applicable to podcasting.

Session Summary: 

Feature Presentation: I have returned from attending and speaking at Midatlantic Podcast Conference and I share 10 tips from attending a conference as follows:

  1. If you can travel a day or more before, it is ideal because it gives you time to prepare and relax for the upcoming event. I was able to get extended time with three awesome podcasters Super Joe Pardo, Nick Goblirsch and Anthony Hayes
  2. Be kind wherever you go. Kindness goes a long way.
  3. Pack as lightly as possible.
  4. The main theme throughout the conference was embracing your authentic message through podcasting. Don’t try to be, simply be. This is also important in networking.
  5. Determine how you define connection. Staying in touch with social media? Waiting till another event? How is your follow up process?
  6. If a situation is draining you, remove yourself from it even if you can only do it temporarily.
  7. It’s not your job to try and make everyone like you. It’s your job to honor yourself and to connect with those whom you are supposed to make a connection with.
  8. Ask yourself:What is the quickest way to implement after you’ve learned? What makes the most sense to do next?
  9. Define your outcomes before attending the event.
  10. Take confident ownership of who you are and the value you bring.
