“Ask Me About…” is a new AWRA program that encourages fun and informal networking between conference attendees.
Conference attendees wear “Ask Me About…” ribbons on their nametags. During conference breaks, lunches, and networking sessions, attendees are encouraged to initiate conversation with anyone wearing “Ask Me About…” ribbons. The “Ask Me About…” ribbons function as conversation icebreakers, resulting in interesting and fun discussion among conference attendees.
- Pick up an “Ask Me About…” ribbon at the conference registration desk. Fill in the blank on your ribbon with a word(s) that provides a clue to your work, background, or professional interests. Attention-grabbing, witty, interesting, yet professional ribbon content is highly encouraged.
- Wear your “Ask Me About…” ribbon on your nametag throughout the conference.
- Engage in conversation with conference attendees by explaining your “Ask Me About…” ribbon.
- For the benefit of the novice conference attendees, experienced attendees should share conference tips, provide professional advice, and facilitate networking with others.
Let the water conversation flow…
