Every time we attend an event, whether it’s a local networking event or an industry conference, it’s important to accomplish your goals for attending.

How do you know if you accomplished your goals?

Jim Sterne, organizer of the E-Metrics conferences, recommends that people attending his events decide ahead of time what they want to achieve. He tells how to Identify, record, and share your desired three outcomes:

Each of your outcomes will be effective when they meet the following criteria.
S – Specific (the What, Why and How)
M – Measurable
A – Attainable
R – Realistic
T – Timely

So, before attending events have a few clear objectives in mind so you’ll return successful — and ready to attend again.
