Creating a BRAND New you will require you to gain new or additional knowledge in areas you unfamiliar to you. I feel that one of the best way to get started gaining that knowledge is to attend conferences.

As the founder of Go Girls, Madalyn has attended and organized numerous conferences.

As you could image she has a wealth of knowledge and experiences regarding the right way and the wrong way to attend a conference. We discuss them all including the importance of having a plan in place before each conference.

Additionally, we discuss specific items to take with you such as:

  • Pen and Paper
  • Business Cards – Madalyn gives a great tip on what to include on your business card.
  • Cell phone battery pack
  • Cell phone charger – Carry it with you!
  • Water
  • Chapstick (This one is mine)
  • Backpack
  • Powerstrip – You’ll be a hero.

We discuss the use of business cards, selfies, how to find the best networking sessions, what social media apps to use while at the conference and how to properly follow-up after the conference.

Yes. You need to follow-up. Madalyn gives us a great suggestion on how to follow up in the most memorable way.
