We believe a great conference is about sharing ideas and information, and while we always expect that to happen in our classrooms and in the expo, this year we’re hoping our attendees can make connections in a new way.
We’re introducing Life Hacks as a chance to network and get to know other attendees, and we’re looking for people with life skills they want to share. On Sunday morning, in the foyer surrounding the registration area, we want to set up Life Hack stations to encourage people – attendees and exhibitors – to hang out and spend time with each other.
What kind of life skills are we talking about? Here are some ideas:
- How to take a better selfie
- OneNote or Evernote
- How to use LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram
- How to use Facebook Live or Chat
- How to journal
- How to fold a pocket square
- How to use filters on Instagram
- How to use Excel
- How to use PhotoShop
- How to go from couch potato to marathoner in 6 months
You get the idea, whatever your special skills or talents might be. We’re looking for a few people who want to teach and share their knowledge – whether trivial or profound – and help be part of a great experience.
Who should volunteer?
- Extroverts who love meeting new people at conferences
- Exhibitors who want to connect with attendees
- Natural teachers who love to share knowledge and information
- Introverts who want to come out of their shells to meet new people
We’re asking for a commitment of one-to-three hours of your time on Sunday, October 15, from 9 a.m. to noon. You shouldn’t attempt anything that requires any large props, only what you can easily carry with you (such as a phone or tablet). This is a casual opportunity to make connections.
We’re trying something new. Help us make it a success. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP with your ideas and availability.
