Whenever I go to a conference that costs me or my employer money, I expect to bring back at least three things.
- I want to get at least one new idea I can put to use quickly.
- I want to make at least one connection with another person who is doing interesting things in their work and who I can follow up with later.
- And I want to be inspired. I look for a passionate speaker who makes me want to do a better job and be a better person.
