I may look young thanks to my Mother’s good genes, but I’ve already been to a fair amount of conferences and trade shows.
For most of that time, I’ve been covering them as a journalist. I have put a lot of pressure on myself to learn as much as I can during conferences, especially as a representative for those readers who couldn’t attend.
I’ve realized this isn’t sustainable, nor has my approach been healthy or kind to myself. I’ve embraced the attitude of working smarter, not harder when it comes to conferences.
Here are eight ways I’ve learned to make the most of my “on” time while also ensuring I can squeeze in some down time—a must for an introvert like me. And if nothing else, keep this checklist handy as you prepare to attend EHS Today's Safety Leadership Conference October 18-20 in Cleveland.
