Just Seven Days to go - Rootstech London

This time next week I will be arriving at Gatwick for Rootstech London as a bleary eyed traveller who has survived the 23hours 45 minutes flight (if there are no hiccups along the way) from Sydney to London.

Ready for Rootstech
My Dance Card is filling up. I need to keep track of my movements and communicate with genimates whilst in London. I will be using the Rootstech App on my phone to keep in touch with Rootstech news and announcements and follow the speaker program. I will be keeping in contact with Aussies at Rootstech and Rootstech Ambassadors in Facebook Groups and employing Facebook Messenger for messaging. My mobile phone plan allows me to make calls to and from 70 countries so I can also use that.

Twitter will be the tool I use to share news and thoughts during the conference - I just don't have time to blog. Of course I will be grabbing folk for interviews too.

I will be using my Google calendar as my main scheduling  tool. This is for a few reasons:
  • I have a shared calendar with Mr GeniAus who is travelling with me so it makes sense for us both to use the same app that we can access on all of our devices. 
  • The Rootstech app only allows one to schedule events within the Rootstech time frame whereas the Google calendar option gives me a platform I can use for all of my 8 days in London.
  • After the event it's easy for me to download my Google calendar into my digital diary that I keep on Excel (read about it here: http://geniaus.blogspot.com/2013/10/the-book-of-me-prompt-6-journals-and.html).
I have a pre-conference checklist that I use and modify each year (the latest was for THE Genealogy Show in Birmingham - I need to take a look at that plus look at the Rootstech London sessions that are must attends for me. Watch out for my next Rootstech London blog post.

Also worth remembering that you can all your messenger contacts as you would with a phone call. I’ve been enjoying early morning chats and video with my other half.
