Last month I attended TEDActive and SXSW, two huge and innovative conferences. My mind is still buzzing! And I met some outrageous people along the way. I’ve had some new ideas percolating in my head, and I am ready to share some of what I’ve learned.
I created this short video to explain what I am about to do the next couple of weeks. Get ready to up your networking game.
TRANSCRIPTION of VIDEO:
“Hi this is Jodi. I just came home from back-to-back conferences I was at SXSW (South By South West) Interactive in Austin, Texas and then before that I went to TEDActive in Palm Desert, California and got to hang out with TEDsters from all over the world!
I just keep learning and growing and building relationships both with people on stage as well as the people attending. I’m really been learning quite a bit about networking and growing my business from connecting people in these large settings.(Interesting fact: TEDActive had about 800 attendees with approximately 400 of them being TEDx organizers from all over the world. SXSW Interactive has over 25,000 people attend! It’s a lot of people!)
So I wanted to give you heads up that I’m sending you a couple more emails than usual in the upcoming weeks. I’ll be integrating some of the tips and strategies I learned from these conferences, as well as what I learned from my Building Your Professional Network Coaching program that I offered in October. Because I find, I learned along the way to as well. I want be able to pass that information onto you, so you can make use of it right away, too. There are practical and simple and it’s just one of those things (ie networking consistently) that the more we do it (ie networking, reaching out, building community, staying in touch, following up) the easier it becomes and then we’re doing it without even noticing.
So that’s my hope and goal.. I want to let you know that that will be coming your way soon. Ooooh, wait, I have other big news! Save the date for April 18. I’m going to be launching something new and fabulous and fun. I’m just so so excited. So I wanted to let you know that’s coming up too.
But for now I’m in a go do laundry, unpack and repack… and get ready for my next upcoming conference. I hope to see you along the way, and if not, I will see you online.
