The Annual Women's Entrepreneurial Network conference was yesterday. It was great and frustrating for me all at the same time. Great was the wonderful day put together by the conference committee. We had two inspiring keynote speakers, Scott Ginsberg, "the nametag guy" and Gail Goodman, CEO of Constant Contact. There were wonderful outbreak sessions, too. Both Scott and Gail each led such a session. In Scott's, where he talked about the Seven Habits of Highly Horrible Networkers, I think we probably broke the fire code for that room. Every seat was taken and many people sat on the floor.
Frustration for me was two-fold: 1) my camera didn't work, so I was not able to take one picture of this wonderful day and 2) I didn't get to connect with as many people as I had wanted to. I guess I just need to have a better plan for making the connections happen. I have taken care of the camera issue with the purchase today of a new Cannon SD 600. It is about the size of a 1/2 inch thick credit card. Neat!
When you go to a one day conference that is jam-packed full of people to meet, exhibitors to see, and speakers to hear, what is your secret for making it all happen for you?
