This page features panels at SXSW Interactive 2013 that will be presented within the BiT House at the Hilton-Garden Inn.
Additionally - this page includes panels that will take place outside of the BiT House that self-selected BiT as a tag, or have panelists or subject matter that we think is of particular interest to blacks in tech. If you would like to have a panel included on this page, please email the SXSW schedule page url to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Networking at large events can be tough if you are not prepared. Have you ever found yourself wanting to connect with someone, but hesitated because you felt you didn’t have anything to offer them? Have you ever made a connection at an event but didn’t know what to do in order to keep the relationship going over time? If you answered, “Yes” to any of these questions, you will benefit from Mike Ambassador Bruny’s interactive presentation, “The New Art of Conference Networking: Hashtags to Handshakes.”
During this session you will get practical steps that will cover everything from, what you should do before you come to a conference, how to follow-up and what to do now that you are actually at SXSW. By the time you leave this session you will be clear on what you have to offer in every networking situation, the 2 most powerful questions you can ask anyone you meet and the 3 mindsets that will help make connecting with other natural.
