Making the Most of The NASC Symposium Experience

“The buck stops with you” at the NASC Symposium. You get out of it what you prepare and put in to it.

That is easy, we all know that in whatever and wherever our jobs and tasks take us.

After 13 years attending NASC Symposiums, there are tips that allow for you to be highly successful and take back with you. These are not necessarily original, we all know them. A little reinforcement always is good.

LISTEN MORE THAN YOU TALK

Ideas can come from the most unlikely places – listen to people, draw out and learn from them.

KEEP IT SIMPLE

There are many simple ways to accomplish what you need to accomplish. Maintain a focus of what you want to accomplish at Symposium, be innovative, but don’t try to reinvent the wheel. Consider, if yiou have not done so, enrolling in the NASC CSEE Program.

TAKE PRIDE IN YOUR WORK

Take pride in what you do and within your organization. You and your staff are your biggest brand advocates. Taking pride shows when you are selling your event, destination or product/service; it can make for an easier sale.

HAVE  FUN, SUCCESS WILL FOLLOW

Have fun at Symposium in the Marketplace, in the Break Out Sessions, at Extra Innings. Networking means having fun. Don’t forget you have to be up and early the next day and do it over again.

TEAR IT UP AND START OVER AGAIN

If you happen not be having fun, or being productive, or are in a funk, start over again. Learn from what went wrong, don’t get disheartened, seek out your peers and start all over.

Believe Your Symposium Experience will be a good one.
