Tech Conference Survival Guide: Dave Overton

  • Print business cards at least 2 weeks before the event.

“It’s always an expectation that people will have.” Having no business card leaves a detrimental first impression about you and your company. That is why it is a must that you should prepare your business card beforehand so you won’t miss any opportunity that comes along. Seize it!

  • Be confident in going to these events.

“Don’t bring any tool that will enable you not to interact.” Tech conference is made for people to interact with each other. If you are an introvert type of person, well, that’s really a challenge for you to overcome. But, you don’t have to worry because there are lifehacks that will help you out to. So, plant it out and map it out. Be confident and just get it.

  • Know the speaker in advance.

“You should have an idea who you want to talk to.” It is not uncommon that people will really ask questions, people tend to be vocal in some ways but there are still others who are way too shy to ask. So, knowing the speaker in advance would somehow help you give an idea about the speaker’s way of engaging to his/her audiences so won’t have any hesitation to ask what you want.

  • Think about how you want people to remember you.

“If you’re not memorable, people will forget about you.” Yes it’s true. Having the best talk isn’t only the ingredient in order for you to be remembered by people. You have to ask yourself, “How do I make myself a better player?” because once you already have the answer of it, you will then know the basic way on how to resonate in the eyes of the people.
