Five Tips for Getting the Most Out of a Convention...

Conventions are a part of many of our lives. They are exciting, full of new possibilities, intentional networking, and learning opportunities, and often exhausting. So how do you get the most out of a crowded convention? Here are some tips for maximizing your time:

  1. Sign up for some workshops being offered, and get there early. Someone once said, “On time is late for leaders!”

  2. Spend time with your colleagues. Maybe you are there for different reasons, but take advantage of being together outside of your normal work environment to get to enjoy each other’s company.

  3. Take good notes. Whether you capture them digitally or by hand, you’ll be glad you did when you want to reference what you saw and heard.

  4. Get out of your comfort zone and schedule a coffee or a lunch with someone in your industry that’s more successful than you. Ask questions and share ideas; and prepare to be inspired.

  5. Wear comfortable shoes!

The main business event I’m looking forward to this summer is the Catholic Marketing Network convention to be held in Schaumburg, Illinois, this July. I’ll be sure to take good notes myself so I can share with you some of the key highlights and takeaways. If you’ll be attending, plan to stop by the Servant Books booth and see our latest offerings!

"And now let us begin this journey, the Bishop and people, this journey of the Church of Rome, which presides in charity over all the Churches, a journey of brotherhood in love, of mutual trust. Let us always pray for one another. Let us pray for the whole world that there might be a great sense of brotherhood.

I will now give my blessing to you and to the whole world, to all men and women of good will."

-Papa Francis quote

He does not know you, yet he prays for you.
He will most likely never meet you, yet he loves you.

This is your chance to show your love, for as the Bible teaches, "Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven."
