In this blog post, we cover everything you need to know about Workday Rising to get the most from your experience.
1. Book your sessions in advance
Because there are so many great sessions and events offered at Workday Rising, it’s easy to get overwhelmed and miss out on things you’re interested in. The sessions offered at Workday Rising cover a range of topics, and by booking in advance, you can ensure you get to attend the ones that are most relevant to you. Keep in mind that popular sessions fill up fast, so it’s important to act quickly.

4. Use your lunch break to network
During Workday Rising, there will be many networking opportunities. But one of the most conducive times to network is during lunchtime. Resist the temptation to rush off to find food alone or to catch up on emails. Instead, grab your lunch and sit beside a stranger, or better still, someone who attended the same session as you. Strike up a conversation and see what you can learn from them.
5. Attend brain dates
Brain dates are sessions dedicated to connecting people with similar interests. Sign up to attend these sessions and leverage that time to meet new people, learn, and even find a resolution to a challenge you might be having.
6. Engage in social activities
Workday Rising isn’t just about attending sessions, networking is one of the main benefits. Be sure to take advantage of social activities to connect with other attendees throughout the event.
7. Create your personalised LinkedIn QR code
Make connecting with your newfound contacts a breeze by having your own unique LinkedIn QR code ready to use. Whether you choose to print it on a business card or save it as your phone home screen, this handy tool allows your new connections to scan and instantly find you.
8. Have fun!
Last but not least, don’t forget to enjoy yourself while attending Workday Rising. There will likely be plenty of opportunities for socialising outside of formal events – take advantage of them! Take some time to explore Barcelona. Try new restaurants, visit historical sites, and enjoy all that the city has to offer.
