When you invest your time and money to go to an event, you want to get the most out of it. But just as soon as you get home, you have to get right back into the thick of everything that needs doing. If you are lucky, you’ll find time to do a few critical actions and maybe follow up with a few key people.
Write down the top five ideas from the event: five business ideas and five blog posts.
This is advice I just took myself. I’ve been to a non-stop string of events, starting in March with SXSW Interactive. Of course, I wrote some posts immediately after each event, but there were more ideas in boxes, folders, and piles of paper. So I dug into those piles, took a notepad and drew up lists of the most promising ideas.
Now my piles are shorter, and my lists of ideas are longer. And I hope my writing and business are just a bit fresher.
What advice would you add, to get more from those events you’ve attended?
