How do you get the most out of a virtual conference?
Hybrid and virtual events seem to be here to stay, creating even more opportunities for nonprofit professionals to learn and grow. No need to book hotel rooms or figure out flights, these days, world-class leaders are broadcasting straight to your office.
How can you get the most out of these opportunities? How can you make sure your virtual conference experience is more than hours of Zoom?
This week on The Responsive Weekly, Bryan Funk and Kelly Cristaldi joined us to discuss the upcoming Responsive Nonprofit Summit and share tips for making your virtual conference experience more valuable.
Valuable Virtual Conference Experiences: The Quick Summary
- Plan for how you’re going to attend the virtual conference. Which sessions do you want to watch live and which can you catch on-demand? How will you store the resources speakers share?
- Team up! If your colleagues are also attending, create a group note-taking system, and decide whether to watch sessions together or divide and conquer.
- Interact. Without coffee lines and happy hours, the best way to network and connect at virtual conferences is to participate actively in the discussion. Ask questions, comment in the chat, and reach out to other attendees.
