Conference season 2013; Have you got your tickets?

April 15, 2013 John Goddard 0 comments

John-Goddard-XSmallWith the year now in complete swing, the conference season is fast upon us.

Blogger: John Goddard, general manager of marketing and sales at Rockend 

There are some big conferences coming up across the country in the next couple of months with big programmes, big name presenters and big promises.

I’m a firm believer of supporting our industries events. Not only do they give you the opportunity to learn about leading industry trends and gain insight and advice from top performers but it gives you a chance to meet and share experiences with your colleagues in the industry. Conferences are a great place to network and to reignite your passion, and you know you’ve attended a great event when can you walk away recharged with new ideas about how you will transform your business and motivate and engage your staff.

Rockend is proud to be supporting some of our industries biggest conferences this year and will be travelling across Australia and New Zealand to attend these events and fulfil our commitment to our clients. 

Whichever conference you decide on attending this year make sure you get the most out of your investment by engaging in meaningful conversations.

Participation is the best way to learn; you only get out what you put in!
