Seize every opportunity to network, especially during the networking breaks and the after work on day 1. This is a fantastic setting to meet new people, exchange ideas, and potentially discover new business opportunities.
10. Implement Tools and Learnings Into Your Organization
OBF's value doesn't end when the event does. Make sure to revisit your notes and implement what you've learned into your organization. Remember, you have access to the content for 365 days after the event, providing ample time to refresh your memory and act on the insights gained.
