Do you need to convince your Management to send you to the AUSOUG 2016 Connect Conference?

Are you unsure how to convince your manager to let you go to the conference? Then the following may help!

Remember that the cost of attending a conference is considerable. That total could include conference registration fees, travel costs, hotel, and time-away-from-work costs. It is likely your managers will want some serious justification for you to attend.

In addition to showing the benefits of the conference itself, you will also want to demonstrate that the organization should invest Professional Development dollars with you (or your team).

Here are some things you can prepare for your management to help convince them you should attend a conference or event:

  1. Refer to our SAMPLE LETTER to get approval to attend the AUSOUG 2016 Connect Conference.
  2. Get a detailed convention program and outline the sessions you plan to attend and how they will benefit your work. Be specific.
  3. If necessary, have a plan for who will cover for you at work while you are at the conference.

We guarantee that the learning you get at the conference will be valuable (and energising).  So don't leave it at the conference - share your results!  Let your boss know that you will commit to a post-conference briefing for staff, senior management or your team (if they didn't attend), where you’ll highlight what you’ve learned.  

Tie your learnings to your organizations long-term and short-term goals or strategic plan - it's important to show your boss that the conference wasn't just good in theory but that it gave you real, actionable solutions that you can implement for your organisation.
