If you have missed APMP WBVE 2020, you can get my biggest takeaways, insights & actionable strategies in my article.
I dedicate this article to our APMP community.

APMP Winning Business Virtual Experience is scheduled to happen from July 22 to July 23. WBVE is an online conference endorsed by APMP. This exciting event will be delivering 32 straight hours of industry-related education across all time zones. You can access this content from the comfort of your homes. 

If you haven’t registered for the session, please register

There are in innumerable sessions and seminars to choose from but you can make the most out of this event by following these tips given below:

Get Comfortable with the Event Platform

APMP is using a tool called Pathable to host and manage the event. Make sure you use the application and get comfortable with it before the main event. Learn the navigate the tool, update the necessary information and try using the chat function. If you wait till the last minute, you might end up losing valuable time from technical mishaps. APMP is also planning on sending out a user training video to attendees which will be a helpful guide. 

Build a Personalized Schedule using the Pathable Tool

Since many sessions are happening, it would be best to check out the schedule of events and take note of the ones you would like to attend. Check to see if there are pre-recorded sessions, which you can watch at a more convenient time. For live sessions you want to attend, you can easily add those events to your agenda by clicking the “X” in the top right of the session description box. This will change the X to a check symbol. Finally, you can export your personalized agenda directly to your Outlook calendar. Now you have a well-planned schedule for each day.

Keep Track of the Sessions You Attend by using the CEU Journal

Keep track of the sessions, the content, and the time you spend participating by updating your CEU journal immediately after the virtual conference. This will help you to remember and document what you learned. 

Make Time for Some Fun Events

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. In addition to some great educational content, WBVE has planned some fun virtual sessions as well. These include happy hours, bingo events, wellness sessions and more! Make some time to wind down during such stressful times.

Even I am conducting a lively session on breathing and exercise on the 22nd called Strong and Stable Foundation – Time Under Tension at 5:00 PM BST (1200 ET). You can read more information about this session and the other sessions I am conducting below.


Reaching out and connecting with other attendees and presenters is also important during APMP conferences. Chat with people, build a relationship and connect with them on LinkedIn. Make sure to maintain the contact even after the conference. We need to learn from each other and each connection is valuable. 

Reflection and Implementation 

It is important to reflect on what you learned from the conference. Make a note of the things you want to embrace and adapt. Monitor the progress. Identify the changes and practices that you would like to implement and share these with your team. Set up a plan for achieving the goals and check on your progress regularly. 

Though it might seem overwhelming, you can make the most out of the conference by making and following a personalized schedule. This is an event where you can enjoy meeting new people, catching up with colleagues and learning new things.

The Happy Hour?

We’ll go around to each guest and ask the following: Tell us 2 truths and a lie. After they provide their answer, we’ll take turns going around the group and guess which is the lie. We will be polling the audience to see which of the 2 stories they think is the lie. Then the person tells us which is the actual lie, and then tells us a story about one of the truths if it is wild/crazy/unbelievable. 

If you haven’t listened to Scribble Talk, you can find 50+ Scribble talk episodes. Listen or re-listen here
