Is your employer sending you to a conference related to your job duties or have you signed up for a workshop to help you improve your design or software skills? While a lot of what you get from these kinds of learning opportunities depends on the speaker/instructor and their presentation, there's plenty you can do to help enhance the learning experience. Do some pre-conference research. Be attentive. Follow-up. Make the most of the next conference, seminar, or workshop you attend with these tips.
