Are conferences worth it ?

As I travel down to London on the train, I am thinking about how best to use my time at the next conference.

Then I think about how much time is required to attend and wonder if it worth going at all.

What will I learn. I won’t know if I don’t attend. Who will I meet. You never know.

Over the years I have had my fair share of conferences. Good and bad. I’ve been lucky enough to travel as well visiting various exhibitions abroad.

On the whole though my business benefits from me taking time out of the day to day stuff and gets me focused on the future. This process works even better if you don’t travel alone.

This time I am travelling with Tom, my business partner. We have made at least 3 significant business decisions already and it’s only 9:30

So as I reflect and ask myself if it’s worth it. The answer is a resounding yes. Time on your business away from your business is not to be underestimated.

So find your next conference and get it booked. Your business will thank you for it.
