What duck9 did not teach you about crashing industries (that he does)

– Buy 2-20 copies of the book an author wrote. Ideally, they’re attending the conference you’re crashing already.

– Record your crashing effort in a journal. Goal = get your invested capital back before day 1; Hour #1 of the conference you’re “crashing”.

– Fill in the holes and solve a problem. Conferences have holes. Conferences have problems. Solve the problems. Fill the holes.

– Buying real-world-insurance. In short, you dual track execute and have a plan B. Crashing a conference means “taking two, down the aisle” — GOOGLE THAT PHRASE

– Learn to leave a couple voiceMails.

– wrangle in Industry Specific Celebs. Ideally, they’d coincide with the conference theme. So for example, “Economy: Next”, I’d invite Jeremiah Owyang (and execute a honeycomb themed afterparty) or Jessica Scorpio and execute a Getaround plug.

This site is targeted at college grad and young professionals, contains user contributed content, and material that may be confusing to a lay audience.
