Although we all wish that T2 Connect could be in person this year, we are committed to making Virtual Connect 2020 as informative and useful as conferences in years past. During these unprecedented times, we know it is easy to get distracted and disconnect, so we wanted to provide some useful tips on how to make the most of T2 Virtual Connect.
T2 is committed to you, but we need you to make the most out of the experience. Show up and use these tips and tricks!
Make a Plan & Goals
Given the flexibility of a virtual event, it is important to have a plan. Be sure to know the times of the sessions you want to attend and the ones that will be most useful for your company. It’s also helpful to set some goals. What do you want to take away from T2 Virtual Connect? How will the takeaways affect you and the way your organization operates?
Interruptions happen, but it is important that distractions are minimized. You wouldn’t want to miss out on the most important comment throughout the entire event because you’re checking an email or Slack message. Block off your calendar and utilize automatic replies on your email.
Familiarize Yourself with Resources
T2 will be using a few different tools to make the event as accessible as possible. Be aware of all the tools and be sure to use them!
Be an Active Participant
Besides being an active listener, take it a step further and participate! Ask questions. Utilize the chat. Be active on social media.
We want Virtual Connect to feel as natural as possible, and we want you to connect with us and other attendees. Attend the virtual happy hours and other events offered!
Utilize “Do Not Disturb”
On the same note as minimizing distractions, use “Do Not Disturb” on all your devices during the event. There will be time in the morning, in-between sessions, and in the evening to check email and social media, but during the sessions is not the time.
Use the Resources Provided During the Event
The resources are there for your benefit, so be sure to use them!
