Event Maven Tip — Quick Connections — Leverage the LinkedIN App Find Nearby Feature

Event Maven Tip — Quick Connections — Leverage the LinkedIN App Find Nearby Feature

Event Maven #ProTip — I learned this brilliant trick during a recent International Association of Microsoft Channel Partners — IAMCP SoCal event from one a gal, one of our awesome members. As a conference speaker, community member and Microsoft MVP I have the great privilege of meeting many people at various events that I’m involved with around the globe.

And I would love to take the moment to connect with everyone who is attending a session, sitting at a meetup table, in a hallway conversation, or in a reception but business cards get forgotten in a bag and there is never enough time to connect and put someone in your phone with every person especially in those larger sessions.

So I share with you a great way to network and connect with people that is super easy. I now put a slide in the beginning (above photo) of every presentation I give and start all meetups, gatherings, etc… with this action.

When You Break Up With Your Phone & Invite The Quiet

When You Break Up With Your Phone & Invite The Quiet

I have thirteen Twitter accounts on my phone that I “manage” or do things with for either my two companies, a smattering of clients, organizations, and a few family members (they get stuck sometimes).

I have six Facebook accounts as well, three Instagram, only one Snapchat, a myriad of messaging apps and conference calling software.

Countless email addresses, seven that I actively use daily.

A bunch of Office 365 Tenants.

And now double-digit Microsoft Teams.

One Slack, yes just one.

And I am absolutely and utterly angry that I now wear readers, which I lend to many to read menus.

It's All Your Fault - @theswingshiftco

I often tell certain people in my life that “it’s all your fault.”

And with Nancy McSharry-Jensen it is her fault. It’s her fault that I have this beautiful career working in and around Microsoft.

Blockchain Blows My Skirt Up.

Blockchain Blows My Skirt Up.

Here I am again in a room full of

developers and entrepreneurs.

Ritual de lo habitual.

People talking about tokens, ICOs, use cases,

Blockchain, Bitcoin, Etherium, “hard forks”…

In tech and computers,

why does it seem that as much as things change they stay the same?
