I've been talking to some colleagues recently about what makes a conference valuable and the overwhelming reaction has been: The audience and their participation. I've also spoken at several conferences (most recently at a national conference in the Netherlands) and the one thing that really made the event stand out to me was the quality of the questions and the feedback from the audience.

Whether you think that it's valuable or not, sometimes the 'easiest' questions are the ones that make us think the most. The definition of "why", "how" can really help others understand a unique viewpoint or difference of opinion.

As we start the ramp up to #PMICON18; there is one thing that I'd like to ask of you. Whether you are attending in person or following virtually; i'd encourage you to participate in the discussions and threads that are created. Actively discuss and question the presenters and keynote speakers with the information that you want to know and really try to share the knowledge that you have gained over the conference.

Throughout the conference, my fellow 'Ask the Experts' and I will be posting here as well as on social media (@Em_The_PM) on our experiences, how the conference is going and perhaps some insights/videos from the breakout sessions.

Is there anything that you'd like to see at the conference? Are you burning to know how the networking sessions look like? Do you want to see who the 'Ask the Experts' are? Let me know below and we can make sure that we try to cover it.

Wasn't it last year that Kristin conducting interviews at the conference? I'd like to see more of that.

Thanks Emily. Of course audience participation is important and adds value.

I would really like to see some videos of the networking and live sessions, if you can share of course. Some one to one discussions as well.

Thanks for all the comments!

@Andrew - Yes, she did. That's a good thing to include again.
@Rami - Yes, we can certainly share that.I'll see how much I can physically upload with the WiFi.

Thanks for sharing, Emily

Waiting to see the updates from the conference!

Very interesting article, thanks for sharing

Thanks all! Again, if there's something you want to see or hear then let me know and I'll see what the other 'Ask the Experts' and I can do!
