How to get the most out of your conference

Here are some great reminders from Harvard Business Review:

  • Shift your mindset and focus on how networking is good for your career. (Bring A LOT of business cards!)
  • Make a wish list of people you'd like to meet from the attendee list and seek them out.
  • When choosing which sessions to attend, consider whether you'll learn something or meet someone new.
  • Take the initiative to join a group for a meal or attend one of the social events.
  • Manage your existing connections, but don't spend all of your time with people you already know.
  • Make time for yourself. Give yourself time to rest and rejuvenate during the conference.
  • Follow up when you're back at work to solidify new partnerships and friendships.

Post-Conference Event

The SMPS SF Chapter invites you to "wave" goodbye to the 2018 Pacific Regional Conference at our Post-Conference Social! We'll be taking over the St. Clair Brown Winery in Napa for a networking event featuring premium Napa wines, appetizers, and live music from the Chime Travelers. This women-run winery+brewery in the heart of downtown Napa features small-lot, handcrafted wines and locally brewed beers with exceptional structural balance and layers of complex flavors. Space is limited.
