EntConnect conference coming up in only four more months
The next annual Entrepreneurial Connections (EntConnect) conference is coming up in barely four more months, from Thursday, March 26, 2009 through Sunday, March 29, 2009. Traditionally the conference consists primarily of a reunion of former readers of Midnight Engineering magazine and a few newbies who have gotten suckered into trying it out, but each year we try to figure out new ways to attract fresh blood. This usually brings the discussion back to the question of what people feel they get out of the conference and how to increase its value to current attendees as well as potential attendees.
You might want to take a look at the current conference Web page and see if it seems right on target or if you think there is anything missing or in any way "off-key."
Although I do try to keep in touch with people, I have no idea how the current recession has been affecting the business and professional lives of past attendees. The say "No news is good news", so maybe everybody is actually doing fine and the so-called "crisis" is just another media scare.
Actually, I do have a fair number of former attendees connected in my LinkedIn network, but I have not seen many job changes since the last conference. Feel free to join my LinkedIn network.
Although the overall conference tends to be "business as usual", I suspect that this year things might be at least a little bit different.
