I always enjoy conferences, but IM Spring Break was by far the most fun I have had at a conference in years.
It was not because there was some crazy parties or because I got some really awesome contracts from speaking… Rather, it was how simple the entire event was, how engaging the networking parties were, and how easy it was to find yourself 4 hours into a big roundtable without even knowing it.
There was no rush to gather and go anywhere, nor did I have to meet someone, only to say “sorry but I have to run out.” When I got to meet awesome people, like Missy Ward, we were able to spend hours talking without interruption. (You still owe me $5 Missy 😉
The sessions were very laid back and informative, and I took more notes than I did at my very first conference as an attendee.
As promised, here are the slides for both of my presentations. Unfortunately, I tend to only use slides as a visual aid, so they might not pass on the full value.

If you didn’t make it to IM Spring Break, then I would really recommend you make it to the next one or Scary SEO, which is put on by the same people. It was definitely worth attending and I will be be trying to make all of them that I can.
