Speaking of, the Teach Them Diligently Conference has 150 to choose from over the course of two-and-a-half days. Many of them occur at the same time and they all sound amazing. How is a girl to pick? Talk about an impossible task.
I want to sit in on a variety of topics and not duplicate speakers or subjects. So, in typical Type A fashion, I sat down yesterday with the schedule, pens, highlighters, and spreadsheets and narrowed down my selections one block at a time.
This is what I came up with. Granted, I've heard that once onsite you can change your mind, so I've got plan B choices as well. Of course I do. ;)

Any other tips for a 1st timer? I've been looking forward to this for months! Everyone has been really nice so far and I'm excited to see people in real life that I've only "met" online until now. Plus, as an event planner by profession, I'm eager to see how conferences in other industries execute their events. Lots of research to be done and knowledge to be gained over the next few days.
I'll be posting about my experience so be sure to follow me on Twitter, Instagram and bookmark www.stacibishop.com.
Here we go.... Day 1.
