As a veteran SCCEcei attendee, I’ve learned to come to the conference prepared with a game plan – I call it my SCCEcei playbook. My first year at the conference was a wonderful experience and I left the conference with a wealth of knowledge and contacts, however, I did not have clear plan on how to utilize all of the information.
Now, at least a week before the conference I strategize what work challenges I need help solving before I leave my office. I use the SCCEcei app to bookmark the sessions and exhibitors who can help solve those challenges. I also jot down a few questions to ask fellow attendees who can offer their advice on how they handled similar situations. The SpeedNetworking and SpeedMentoring events are a great place to start these conversations.
Attending the conference can be overwhelming, and having a playbook can help make the most of your experience. Go team go!
