It is a good practice to collect notes and information in a way that makes it easy to access when returning to the office. At the end of each presentation and Q&As, write down the three key takeaways and any follow-up you want to do on the topic or with the speakers. This will help jog your memory and give you specific to-dos when you return to work and your colleagues.

Don’t be afraid to ask questions or hang around (even as the last person) at a session to say hello, tell them you loved the presentation, and grab their business cards.
