Believe it or not, the world is returning to a sense of normalcy. Businesses are opening their doors to the public without many restrictions, restaurants are filled with diners, and ballparks have excited fans on a nightly basis.
But what’s even more important than all of this is a return to the opportunity for human connection.
As we head into the summer of 2021, conferences will serve as an invaluable way for coaches, speakers, and authors to grow their business, connect with new clients, and explore potential leads.
But why do people attend conferences? As much as we’d like to believe that we can get all of the information we need from the Internet, there is so much more to gain by the in-person connection opportunities presented by conferences and networking events.
In fact, a recent study shows that 91% of people who attend conferences gain new connections and more than 64% of them learn some type of new skill or technique. The list of benefits goes on.
If you are an aspiring coach, author, or speaker, there are plenty of opportunities coming up for you to capitalize on them. Here are some of the best conferences for you to attend this year:
