Post-Conference Wrap-up: The 2018 SQF International Conference is in the Books!

9 novembre 2018

The 2018 SQF International Conference was a tremendous success! We are excited to report we had over 750 attendees, over 45 sponsors and exhibitors, 20 informative speakers, and an abundance of great workshops!  So now you’re back in the office or work space, all settled in and excited about the information and best practices you’ve learned during the conference…but now what? Que faites-vous de toutes ces informations qui tourbillonnent dans votre tête ou qui sont inscrites dans votre iPad? Voici quelques conseils sur la façon d’apporter le cercle complet de cette expérience de conférence et de partager les précieuses informations que vous avez apprises avec vos collègues et la communauté.

  • Attend our Post Conference Learning Lunch’s in 2019! We received a lot of questions in each session and we plan on continuing the conversation with conference presenters who will share key takeaways from some highly attended sessions, what to do with the information you learned at the conference, and how to understand and plan for 2019 SQF initiatives.  The Learning Lunches will be beneficial to you whether you attended the conference in Atlanta or were not able to make it.
  • Schedule a brainstorm session with your team.You likely did not bring everyone with you to Atlanta, so now that you’re back…ideally as soon as possible…debrief your team. Visit the SQF Conference app to print the schedule, bring your notes, pull up online presentations from speakers, link or share conference photos.  Partager la richesse!
  • Present a conference summary to your colleagues, peers, partners, etc.Just like your co-workers, peers within your local community can benefit from your conference experience.
  • Email, tweet or chat with the speakers.Trust us, it’s okay to talk to them. Et par hasard, si jamais vous rencontrez un intervenant qui est trop occupé pour vous retourner un tweet ou un courriel après la conférence, vous êtes alors trop occupé pour tenir compte de leur avis.
  • Talk to your new friends.Remember that guy /woman from Chicago/Colorado/Cleveland? Leur parler. Envoyer un courriel, un tweet ou bavarder en ligne après votre retour. Leur demander comment ils ont mis en œuvre les leçons de la conférence.
  • Email everyone.For every card you picked up, email that person within a couple of weeks of getting back to the office. Non seulement cela vous forcera à vous souvenir de la personne, mais cela pourrait aussi conduire à des opportunités et des partenariats intéressants.
  • Create an action item list.Did you love a specific idea or best practice? Transfer the knowledge to an action list, work it into your daily routine or the next department meeting. Ne les laissez pas finir dans votre ordinateur portable. Autre point de vue sur la même idée : créer une liste d’arguments. Pull out the conference directory and check your notes and for each session write down the one takeaway. Créer un courriel et vous le renvoyer la liste dans un mois. Répéter le cycle de l’inspiration.
  • Come through on those promises.We all make them…”Oh, I will send you that,” “Let me connect you with her,” “I will give him a call.” Vous devriez vraiment tenir les promesses que vous faites lors de la conférence.
  • Connect through social.The people you met, the speakers, even the people who started following you during the conference. Les retrouver sur Twitter, Facebook ou LinkedIn et parlez-leur. Don’t forget to also follow us on Twitter @SQFI , LinkedIn , Facebook and YouTube

Register for next year’s conference!

Réservez la date! November 5-7, 2019 at the JW Marriott, Hill Country Resort & Spa, San Antonio Texas!
