So you're going to your first email conference

So you’re going to your first conference

Work

Last week I attended my first work related conference, at the fairly ripe age of 30. After working from home, remotely for a year, I was a little bit worried if I could hack it. Not only was I attending, but I’d be speaking on a panel, with three other email marketers.

The nerves set in pretty quickly. In fact they actually set in way before I knew I was going. When I was asked if I’d like to speak and I foolishly said yes. I began thinking if I should backtrack on my decision.

Well, I didn’t. A fact made obvious by the fact that I’ve already said I attended said conference. And I spoke. A few words. And it was all okay. You could even say I learnt a few things about myself and this conference going malarkey.
