by Lynnette Nolan | Nov 13, 2012

Carbonite SVP of Cloud Backup Pete Lamson is sharing his top five tips for busy professionals to stay connected with their industry in honor of Global Entrepreneurship Week. You can check out

Tip #1: Check out a webinar

Tip #2: Attend an industry event

 

If you’re looking to actually leave your office, industry events are a great place to learn from and network with others in your field. You can find listings for upcoming events in a variety of places, including professional association websites, media outlets, and event directories that let you search by keyword and location, like Eventbrite. You may find it valuable to attend both industry-specific events (for fields such as accounting, real estate, law or IT) and broader business events, such as the NY Business Expo — where Carbonite will be presenting on November 15 — or Entrepreneur Week.
