A Success Story
Jeremy received the following email from a Live! 360 attendee later in the week. The sender has asked to remain anonymous but is glad to have us share his story.
"I just wanted to tell you that your brief talk during the keynote struck a chord with me. You talked about your experiences in the past regarding conferences and talking to other people. I haven't been to a tech conference in about 5 years but I was exactly the same way. After listening to you I decided that I would at least attempt to talk to some people during this conference.
"Well during lunch on Tuesday I eventually said something to someone at the table regarding a session we were both in. That conversation didn't really go anywhere but the guy sitting next to me jumped in on the subject and we got to talking quite a bit and then guy on the other side of me jumped in as well and before I knew it I was learning all sorts of things. It was pretty awesome and made me want to talk to more people to get their opinions on topics. Over the next couple days I made a point to talk to more people during breaks and lunch and had some great conversations. Thanks to your speech, this conference turned out to be even better than I expected. Now I'm already looking into going to my local .NET users group meetings when I get back home!
"I also went to both of your sessions... I stayed after both sessions just to listen to the great conversations going on with you and even asked a couple questions. In the past, I would have left the room immediately after the session was over."
