Now that RevolveConf is in your rearview mirror, don’t allow the new things learned, the renewed excitement for what you do, or the connections you made to fall by the wayside. Here are a few suggestions for continuing to leverage your RevolveConf 2017 Experience.
While at the conference (during an interactive session, getting your silly on at the Lucent Booth, or even while putting your mark on the color wall), you encountered people from different parts of the country, and even local Charlestonians you’d never met before. You collected business cards, Facebook friends, Twitter and Instagram followers; now it’s time (if you haven’t already done so), to reach out and keep those connections warm.
Keep the conversation going, join the REVOLVErs groups on Facebook, or LinkedIn to cement and further the relationships forged – imagine how cool it would be next year to reunite with your fellow #revolversforlife …
Be realistic! Follow-up with fellow attendees and speakers, who resonated with you for whatever reason, let them know you enjoyed meeting them. Set up a phone/skype call, or face-to-face meeting with anyone you specifically want to do business or cement a relationship with.
Pay it Forward
Without a doubt, you’ve had your picture taken, learned about Pixrit; and gained loads of new information, inspiration, and contacts at the conference. One of the best things you can do with these resources is to share them with your co-workers, colleagues, and friends.
Be bold about sharing your RevolveConf Experience and takeaways. Share links to slides of the sessions you thought were particularly valuable. Give a talk about something you learned at your next staff meeting, or community meetup; tell your boss/meetup attendees about some of the interesting contacts you made. Who knows, your boss or meetup organizer may feel led to bring one of your contacts in to share in your space.
If you share your new skills and knowledge, hopefully your colleagues will reciprocate the next time they go to a great event. Start a trend of sharing, why don’t you? That said, be sure to save the dates for Revolve Conference 2018 – November 12 – 13, 2018. Next year we’ll be back at the Charleston Marriott, and as always we’re looking to level up our conference game!
Also! 2017 Attendees should keep your eyes peeled for Revolve Conference 2018 Alumni Ticket Pricing … it’s usually less than the Early Bird price … for a limited time only! More on this later …
