After the Love is Gone...

After watching this "Look Back at AIIM17" video, it’s hard to believe that more than a month has passed since we were in Orlando. And yet, the keynotes, sessions, festivities and fireworks feel like they took place ages ago.

How to Turn 3 Days at #AIIM17 into 365 Days of Action

The problem with most conferences is that, while they inspire and motivate onsite, they fail to provide lasting prescriptive guidelines or hacks that can be applied “back at the ranch.” This deficiency may lay with the conference program itself, lack of planning on the part of the attendee, or both.
