Not long ago I did a series on Conferences and a lot of you contributed by giving some wonderful tips and advice in the comments section. If you missed any of the posts, you can find them in the archives: Why Conferences Cost So Much, Learn Without Going, How to Choose a Conference, There’s More to Schmoozing than Schmooze, and The Party’s Over.
Joe will be here Thursday to put the capper on the series with some truly great advice, especially for those who haven’t gone to a conference because of the cost or who want to give back to others while benefitting from a conference. He’s going to tell you how he did not attend or pay for a conference, yet got more out of that conference than most of those who did.
Check out Joe’s website and blog, then come back here Thursday to read what he has to say.
