Top Tips for Getting Your Manager’s Approval

  • Highlight the Benefits: In your email or proposal, clearly outline the key benefits attending the event will bring to both you and the organisation. This could include gaining new skills, networking opportunities, access to industry insights, potential partnerships, or solutions to current challenges your team or company is facing.
  • Present a Cost-Benefit Analysis: Provide a detailed breakdown of the costs associated with attending the conference, including registration fees, travel expenses, accommodation, and any additional costs. Then, demonstrate how these costs will translate into tangible benefits for the company. For example, calculate the potential return on investment (ROI) by estimating how the knowledge and connections gained from the conference could lead to increased productivity, innovation, or revenue generation.
  • Showcase a Plan of Action: Assure your manager that you have a clear plan for maximising the event experience and implementing what you learn upon your return. This could involve attending specific sessions or workshops relevant to your role, scheduling meetings with industry experts or potential partners, and preparing a report or presentation to share insights and recommendations with your team or department.
  • Offer a Compromise: If cost is a concern for your manager, consider proposing a compromise, such as seeking partial funding from the company or exploring alternative ways to cover expenses, such as using personal development funds, leveraging discounts, or sharing accommodations with colleagues to reduce costs.
