Another week of conferences passed by in a blur. There were so many good stories; I hope I can reconstruct them from my chicken-scratches! I haven’t even gotten back in touch with people from the two conferences I went to over the last two weeks. I plan to summarize the general conversations I’ve been having, and then get in touch with everyone and have the followup conversations over e-mail. Anyway, here’s how my week went:
- I spent Sunday to Wednesday at the IBM Technical Leadership Exchange in Orlando, Florida. Here are some of the highlights:
- Networking workshop: Looks like I’ve got the basic networking stuff down pat. Well, maybe I could find a better way to do follow-up – a quicker way to do data entry and mass e-mail? Hmm. Also, it might be a good idea to try teaching social networking sometime…
- Presentation secrets from comedians: Some great tips in there, such as establishing the space at the beginning of the presentation and getting the hang of walking backwards.
- Animal Kingdom – It’s really quite a different experience, chatting about tech while going up a rollercoaster… =)
- Keynote speeches – Loved the energy! Someday I’m going to be able to do something like that…
Thought for the week: I like this, but I’m also looking forward to slowing down and catching my breath. =)
