Last week, I presented "CRAVE Your Conference Goals!" at the conclusion of The Network of Executive Women's Leadership Summit in Atlanta. 

There's a common occurrence when most of us attend a conference. We gather information, enjoy inspiration, make promising connections and then...we go back to work. We often never even review our notes or unpack our bag of materials and other goodies, discovering them months later tucked away in a closet or the trunk of our car. I've been there.


In this program, I guided participants through a simple process of setting their conference goals and then introduced them to the CRAVE strategies so they could achieve those goals faster and easier. They left with an action plan to make the most of their investment of time, money and energy. It's something you can use for any conference or meeting.


In this segment, I'll show you how to set your goals. Next week, I'll follow up with the CRAVE steps. 




What information or insights do you want to explore? Think about what you learned at the conference and the exercises you may have begun in your breakout sections. What breakout sessions did you miss that interested you? Look through your notes, the printed agenda and perhaps the event app to refresh your memory. List the information that you'll explore.



The next category is inspiration. Think about the speakers you heard over the last few days. The authors, experts and representatives from companies you admire who fired you up. Are there books or reports you want to read? Perhaps video clips to view or webinars to participate in? Websites to check out and newsletters and blogs to subscribe to? Begin your list here.




The final category is connections. Who have you met at the conference that you want to pursue a relationship with? It might be the person you sat next to at lunch or a general session. Or someone who spoke. Sort through the business cards you collected and review the list of attendees. Make a list of those names and why you want to connect. Then, decide how you'll connect. You might ask them to join your LinkedIn network and schedule a phone call, Skype session or, if they're local, lunch or coffee. 


Next week, I'll share how to apply the five CRAVE steps to make the most of your next conference.

Have You Heard What They're Saying?
"As a conference organizer and attendee, I know how common it is to return from an event, store away your materials and cards, and get back to business as usual. At the Network of Executive Women Leadership Summit last year, we concluded with the 'CRAVE Your Conference Goals!' action workshop and it made our event more meaningful and memorable. Attendees got so much out of it that we hired Tricia this year to repeat her program."
