Everyone learns differently. Some people process information by taking detailed notes, some people do their best thinking out loud in conversation with others and some people prefer to see visual representations of the subject at hand. Whether you fall into one of these groups or have a learning style all your own, Safety 2018 has learning opportunities designed to help you become a better safety professional.
“It is the premier safety conference in the country,” says Mary L. Silva, CSP, PDC planning committee chair and senior consultant in risk engineering for property and casualty insurer Crum and Forster. “The educational opportunities are unparalleled – from the keynote presentations to the concurrent and flash sessions – and the networking opportunities are unsurpassed. It’s a great place to meet the faces behind your e-mails and phone calls.”
But even with easy-to-use scheduling tools and ambassador recommendations, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the options. Which concurrent sessions will you attend? Is your time better spent networking with your peers or working on an elevator pitch to launch your latest innovative safety idea? To help you decide, here are 10 ways to learn at this year’s PDC.
