Let the Networking Begin!

September 6, 2009 - Attending the APDT Conference is about so much more than seeing the great speakers we have lined up.  After all, you could just skip the conference and buy the DVD, right?  Well, sure... but the DVD doesn't contain all of the amazing networking opportunities that you missed! 

The conference offers opportunities to catch up with previous acquaintances as well as make new connections.  You can meet trainers from across the country, and even across the world, that share common interests with you. Learn about new products and training techniques, and share your own tricks of the trade with others.  Finally put faces to the names of people that you chat with on all those training-related yahoo groups you belong to! 

Whether you help stuff conference totes on Tuesday, attend the "Networking Roundtables" sessions on Thursday evening and Friday and Saturday mornings, or just make plans to go out to dinner with other conference attendees, the opportunities to build connections within the training community are priceless!
