Making the Most of PASS Summit 2019

Some of us are going to the PASS Summit for the first time, some of us are repeat attendees. The question most people ask after the event is "did we make the most of the event". Some people ask candidly enough, the same question, before they attend. Grant Fritchey PASS President and Paresh Motiwala will present this awesome topic that will help you get the most out of this summit. They will share their years of attendance and volunteering at the summit. They will cover: 1. Why go ? 2. How to convince your boss? 3. How to plan on a shoes-string budget? 4. How to choose sessions? 5. How to network? 6. Making most of the Microsoft CAT Teams 7. Spending time to talk to vendors 8. How to follow up? 9. What touristy things we can do there? 10. How to make your money go a long way, in case your company doesn't sponsor your trip.
