When you need something, you  don’t have to borrow from the person sitting next to you, which makes it more awkward. Your seatmate might think of you as irresponsible for not bring the important things needed for the seminar. Moreover, when you have something to write about, it gives you the opportunity to take down strong points from the speaker easily and immediately.

2. Avoid distractions

Perhaps, you are holding your phone while texting with your friends, or opening social media and doing your own thing. Well, that unless if it is related to the seminar that you are attending to. Tweeting about the talk, researching the terms the speaker used is an exception. However, you should not spend too much of your time on the things that you are doing since it will definitely distract your focus from the seminar.

Making friends with the person sitting next to you, and/or with other potential people will definitely be to your advantage. The person whom you mingle with is most likely to share his/her own knowledge about the SEO. There is a caveat though, you have to be keen and/or observant to the people around. There are people who attend the seminar just for the sake of attending without any determination to learn new things.
