18 Unsolicited Pieces of Advice for Novice PAMLA Conference Attendees/Presenters

18 Unsolicited Pieces of Advice for Novice
PAMLA Conference Attendees/Presenters 

  1. Go to other folks’ sessions, and during the Q&A at the end, ask a real, thoughtful question or two (don’t make a speech disguised as a question). Doing so will be good for you, and good for the presenter and the entire session. Good listeners and thoughtful, polite questioners make a conference more successful.
