(I wanted to post more on franchises, but I’ve got something worth interrupting my Soul Train of thought for.)
A few years ago I started doing Geek Career Networking events at conventions. It was a mixture of discussing networking and connecting people in the audience. It wasn’t a true networking event if you want to be technical; it was a panel on networking with real networking bolted on.
I’ve always wanted to try a “real” connection-focused Networking even in the convention scenes. The kind where you mix around and meet people based on your professional interests. I figured one would be useful at a convention, and perhaps in a time where ConSuites aren’t always a guarantee, necessary.
Fortunately, the crew at AODSF let me try out a full Geek Networking event. The results were “pretty good” but let’s get into the details and the lessons learned – because I’d like to not just share, but hear other ideas.
