Going One Step Further

Showing up as an attendee is great, but SPEAKING at a conference can impact your career in a myriad of ways:


Why Should You Listen to Me? (My Street Cred)

One of the things I help my career coaching clients do is find conferences/events to speak at and pitch them. I’ve been on the planning team for many a conference/event (100 – 15,000 attendees), and I get all the politics that go into selecting speakers.


Point 2: Engage with the Conference on Social Media

Conference organizers want butts in seats. In order to get butts in seats, they need people talking about the conference – especially on the interwebs.


Point 4: Follow & Connect with Individual Organizers

Find the conference organizers on LinkedIn and Twitter, and engage with them! They’re probably posting about the conference year round, and you can stand out from the stack of speaker applications through 1:1 authentic engagement!
