WCQI - Keep your schedule full
Using the Big Rocks analogy, if you put the big rocks in the glass first, then the smaller rocks and pebbles will find their way as well.
Target your time to fit the "must-attend" events, and with the time remaining, make the most of the opportunities to explore new elements.
I also encourage people to get out of their comfort zone and attend sessions or events that are outside of their industry. This not only helps you, it keeps the audiences diverse and interactive.
As a speaker, I always enjoyed and made time for anyone with follow-up questions or requesting more in-depth knowledge. The 40-60 minute sessions are really the tip of the iceberg, and speakers would most likely find it flattering to make new contacts. This would help your own network and intensify the conference experience.
Above all else, enjoy WCQI and if you find yourself bored or stalled, go somewhere and get engaged and involved.
