Did You ever wonder why speakers love what they do? Why do they submit to Call for Papers of accept invitations for conferences?
The true keys are People and Stories.
Visiting conferences is a great place to meet new PEOPLE. To make new friendships with other speakers, attendees, organization committee. We spend hours drinking, eating and discussing. We collect the ideas and listen to stories. STORIES are not only presented by other speakers, but bring by the audience. We can talk them on "ask me anything corners", in the hall, during after-party or dinner. We can share our experience or give proposals to a proven solutions. We can see smiles and have great time together.
For all of above I am thankful to any program committee or organization that allows me to be a part of their great conference. Thank You very much.
