A fun Friday strategy. When professional development money gets tight or schedules do not allow you to attend a conference, consider following the conference using social media. I have collected the highlights of national and regional conferences by using the conference hashtag. As an example, I do not anticipate being invited to Davos for the World Economic Forum this year but using #WEF or #davos I am able to view real-time postings from the summit and its auxiliary events. I found links to a number of video clips and resources that were of great interest and value. Best of all, I was able to do it on my time. Although I would have loved the journey to Davos it saved me a couple days of travel and thousands of dollars.
