Starbucks Via, Altoids, Power Bars, a big bag of raw nuts, & Purell at your conference booth #protip

By Scott Sambucci | January 7, 2012

If you’re working a conference booth, bring Starbucks Via, Altoids, Power Bars, and a big bag of raw nuts with you.  Trust me on this.

Conference coffee is awful – it’s watery and never has enough caffeine to do the trick.  Fill your coffee cup then lace it with Starbucks Via – a legal equivalent to uppers.  The Altoids keep your mind and mouth fresh from drinking coffee. Power Bars are adequate replacements for missed meals. Nuts are a filling alternative to the sugary cookies and Nutri-Grain bars served during breaks. Purell keeps you relatively germ free.  Not everyone washes their hands.

That’s is all.  Carry on.

[Of course, if you like these little nuggets, register now – see form on the right – for a copy of “How to sell if you never have before & really, really need to right now.”]

Really appreciated your eforft for a well written article from an angle and standpoint at a relativley independent position and a more macro perspective. These days, largely because of the noisy. piecemeal and disorderly environment or discussion platform, it is easy to get lost in the information ocean, and many HK people are struggling for their living and hardly spare the time. Anyway, this will be over somedays, and besides all the foes, for many people we can learn from it and become better trained in the future. Your article illustrates the lessons — we have paid the price, and at least, we do not need to pay again in future. Thanks.
