As a creative or an entrepreneur, you just never know where inspiration can strike, and conferences are a great way to get those gears moving! And once you start going to a few each year, you can begin to see which ones work best for you and curate your conference experience (or CX, as we like to call it!) to ensure you’re making the most of every opportunity. 🔥 Click the link in our bio to view a roundup of the conferences we’ve attended so far in 2019, what we’ve learned, and why you should make conferencing an integral part of your business strategy.
