HOW Conferences: What Are You Good [At]?

Written by in Events

What do you do well?


In the thick of it.

Four conferences at once. Insanity. But loads of fun. Michael Osborne spoke this morning at the Dieline Packaging Conference. Dyana Valentine was  here to speak to the the Freelancers Creative conference and Design Live. Those three all overlapped today, Friday June 24. Times Square on New Year’s Eve here at Michigan and Wacker by the Chicago River.


Trouble with a capital T: Osborne, Alexander and Potts.

“What do you do? What do you do? What do you do?” You+Them=Loads of Good Ideas. Dyana Valentine has been performing her talks for five straight days. Whatever stamina meds she takes, I hope she blogs about it. Whew!


Dyana knows how to mug for the camera.

Well, okay!  We started the morning with Valentine workshop, Don’t Be a Deer in the Headlights Again, a three-hour workshop that saw Valentine challenge nearly 100 find deeper meaning behind who they are what they do and for whom they want to do it. Valentine is very good at engaging the crowd and keeping the focus on personal honesty and growth. What a great way to start the conference. Here are some pic. Bekah Kinsella will be shooting bigger, better pics for us all weekend long!
