The last day of CMC 2019 is filled with events that you don’t want to miss. From the closing breakfast, to the comedy workshops, to the final goodbye, Day 4 is sure to be memorable to say the least. While you might be thinking about checking out of your hotel, making sure you have all of your new business cards safe and sound, and all of those last minute packing activities that typically happen at the end of the conference, be careful that you don’t become trapped in the all too familiar metaphor of a chicken running around with its head cut off. In other words, Day 4 should be a time for reflection, capturing those final tidbits of wisdom, and having a few laughs along the way. Fortunately, the following guide will help you to avoid the headless chicken conundrum so that you can end CMC 2019 on a high note.
Make The Most Out Of CMC Day 4
They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, which is why you should be sure to attend breakfast from 8:00am to 9:00am. During the first few days of the conference you hopefully made a few connections with your fellow attendees and speakers. On Day 3 take a few moments to set up a breakfast date (professionally speaking of course) for Day 4. Whether you want to make it a group activity with your fellow attendees, or are hoping to snab a few moments of one-on-one time with your favorite speaker, Day 4 breakfast offers a great opportunity to put your networking skills to good use.
Next, be sure to attend at least one of the comedy workshops. This year, CMC 2019 is filled with speakers who will have you gasping for breath, clutching your sides, and becoming a living version of the laughing while crying emoji. You have been forewarned. On Day 4 you will have the opportunity to see the following speakers:
