  38. 38. NOW WHAT? So how do I make the best of the conference - AFTER during and after? ● CONTACT those who may have asked you a question that you didn’t fully answer ● FOLLOW-UP with those who promised to send you reading lists, links, etc. ● REVISIT your conference notes soon after the conference and make the changes to your proposal, literature chapter, methodology, field work etc. before you forget those inspirational moments
