In 2002 I attended my 1st conference in Las Vegas, NV and the one memory that stands out was hitting the jackpot on the nickel slots. In 2007 I spoke at my 1st conference not knowing if I would make it out alive. Next week I attend my 50+ conference to speak, learn and network.
I invite you to learn from my experiences in making the most of conferences to help you stand out from the pack and become the unique persona you are destined to be.
Why should you become a student?
More about the teacher
My name is Alex Ivanov I used to be a shy software developer that has overcome numerous personal challenges including my fear of picking up the phone, being in a room full of strangers (i.e. a common theme at conferences to start with) and speaking to an large audience.
With my own personal struggles removed I’m excited to share what has worked for me in the hopes it can work for you as well. Life is so much more exciting now that I have overcome these barriers and together we can ensure you do the same.
