How to virtually share conference content (on the cheap) | Plan Your Meetings | Event Planning | Scoop.it

See if this sounds familiar: Meeting stakeholders want you to broadcast and capture the conference’s educational content, but there’s no budget for technology.

Networking for Introverts

Networking for Introverts | Event Planning | Scoop.it
Find the type of gathering that works for you.


The night before a conference where I was scheduled to speak, I found myself in a crowded bar just south of Greenwich Village. The organizers had arranged a VIP reception, and — having just moved to New York — I figured I should attend.
