Leverage the Buzz and the Networks. After The Forum, revisit tweets tagged with the hashtag #accpforum to incorporate some of the session’s trending topics into your report. Revisit the stack of business cards you collected and include a section highlighting the professional contacts you made, as well as a key action you plan to take to keep the conversation going for each person.
Check Back In. Have you changed an aspect of your work because of something you learned at The Forum? Set a reminder to send a thank you email to the person or people who inspired the change. Identify a date that’s far enough out—e.g. one month, six months—that allows you to authentically speak about the impact of the change.
Drive Your Own Inspiration Cycle. Create a calendar appointment or set a reminder for November 1, 2020 with a list of your top action items or key takeaways from The Forum. Take some time to intentionally reflect on your progress towards your goals. Refine them as needed and identify new opportunities for action. Follow up with members of your cohort to see what progress they’ve made towards their goals. Schedule another reminder for November 1, 2021.
