Experience The Birthplace of America While Visiting the resco.next Conference
written by Barbora Piatrova on September 21, 2016
So, What’s the Main Idea Behind our Conferences?
Well, sometimes, you simply have to take a break from the “work” of your work to sharpen your skills. You know, what they say: ‘A dull axe won’t cut a tree nearly as effectively as a sharp one’.
This is what conferences are for. They are, indeed, all about smartening yourself up and letting you break out of your comfort zone. You can learn in a new space, network with strangers (that can eventually turn into perspective partners/customers), and get a line on new tips & useful tactics. However, for what it’s worth, at each such event, you often get a chance to experience an authentic feel of an unknown city!
This year, we picked Philadelphia for the American edition of resco.next.
