We hope to see you in a few days at SuperConference. Even if you can't make it, I hope you will consider the tips in this column when you attend future events. While best practices content and CLE are certainly compelling reasons for coming, I encourage you to maximize the peer-to-peer network building potential of SuperConference. And for anyone in job search mode, let's be candid: Networking is really your primary reason for attending.
Here's the thing. No one wants to become "that guy," the one who stalks panelists, or who turns Q&A time into a speechmaking opportunity. We don't want you to be "that guy," either. So, please consider the following suggestions for effective conference networking. Even if you are a veteran of the conference scene and think you already know all there is to know about networking, I encourage you to keep reading. You may find a helpful new suggestion here.
