Back from a Conference. Now what?


Last week, the ILN hosted our 2010 Regional Meeting of the Americas in Houston, Texas. I'll be putting up some posts this week re-capping some of the sessions, but I thought I'd start today with my recommendations for what to do when you get home from a conference.

At our meetings, although the business sessions are very valuable, the key is relationships - our members rely on their relationships for both referral work and collaboration. And these relationships don't have to take a hiatus just because you're back at work. So what should you do once you get home?

1. Reach out: At our conferences, we provide both a delegate & companion listing, and a listing of delegates with their photos. It's a great idea to go through these during and after the conference, make notes of who you met and what you talked about, and take a few minutes to email them once you're back in the office to let them know you enjoyed meeting with them. If appropriate, you can arrange a phone call to continue a conversation that you were having during the conference.

Please see full article below for more information.
