Ever since I could remember, I have had an extreme love for people. So much so that when I arrived at college I decided to major in sociology -- the study of people. Humans are interesting creatures -- the way they think, what has led them to think the way they do, or their levels of rational is so fascinating. This mindset and fascination for people is why I have my current career, not only working with people of all ages, backgrounds, religions etc., but I connect them!
We’ve all been to those large conferences where you feel like a minnow in an ocean of IT Professionals, amongst a giant advertisement with vendors yelling as you walk by. While the bells and whistles of the booths in the convention center are quite impressive, in the age of information where social media alienates people, we need to find ways of making true connection more prevalent. Regional forums have a larger platform than ever, creating opportunities to be strategic in what is said and who attends. Why not speak with tech execs, whom are on your same level, to grow your personal brand of intellectual property.
