Conferences Worth Investing In (Any Advice?)
I am looking for some good conferences to attend in 2009.
[Side Note: I am a recovering “I hate conferences dude.” Although I still don’t necessarily like the flash and hype of some conferences (not to be mentioned here), I really appreciated many of the conferences I have attended of late that really do feed the soul, provide practical insights, and help to create working networks with some great people. In fact, I’ve met many of you through conferences. I wouldn’t trade that for the world…Awwwww…Come on, join me…Awwwwww.]
Do you have any suggestions on conferences that I should consider going to next year? I am looking for conferences that particularly deal with creativity, leadership, innovation, social justice, church health, community development, and networking.
Maybe you could share a couple of websites to visit and give a brief explanation of why you like those particular conferences. (Also, where are these located and how much?)
In light of our economic downturn, I thought this conversation could benefit all of us.
Thanks in advance for participating.
