Networking 101 @ VGXPO, October 30 -Past-

I’m going to be giving a talk on effective networking at the Game Career Seminar at VGXPO in Philadelphia on October 28 and 29. I’m working on making the talk as interactive as possible for a big lecture hall. It’s going to be a challenge, but I look forward to it. And if you happen to be attending the seminar or the expo, leave a comment here and find me at the event! I love chatting with my loyal (or not-so-loyal) readers.

On a related note, I just happened upon a great blog post from Suw Charman on how to become a conference speaker. Although it’s also got great advice on how to be an active participant in a conference community, and not a passive conference-goer. A lot of my coworkers who have been to GDC don’t understand why I love it so much, and I think a key part of it is that I try to be active: if I just attended sessions and hung out with people I already knew, I don’t think I’d enjoy myself half as much. The other key part of it is that my coworkers are clearly crazy: GDC is awesome.

I’m doing a poster session at GDC in March, so I feel that.

I really wish I could attend, but I’m going to be out in California at my internship. Good luck though!
