Thomas Marks (, Carol Margolis (Smart Women Travelers), Cynthia Drescher (

Everyone thinks traveling is glamorous, but not so much when you’re in a big city by all by yourself.

Or if you’re traveling alone for work, what do you do after the conference or business meeting is over? Not many of us can say that dining by ourselves is our favorite thing to do, but what options do we have when we feel isolated in an unfamiliar place?

In today’s world, with the power of social networks and trip sharing, the ability to connect to those around us (wherever we may be) is at our fingertips. However, we have yet to fully take advantage of all the tools that are available to engage with acquaintances and to make new connections.

In this session, come learn how you can harness the power of social media to fully take advantage of networking connections that may be right around the corner.

Vote here by August 31, 11:59pm CST.
