Make the Most
of a Conference

Network–Approach someone standing alone; find out what she does, why she’s there and what you have in common, then exchange business cards.

Have a purpose–Networking isn’t just about building relationships; if someone can help you in a specific way, ask for it.

Tweet tweet–Fire up that Twitter account and monitor the conference in real time; it’s a great way to connect with people.
