Even though we are working from home, it’s important to continue growing professionally by participating in various online summits, webinars and conferences. Yet it is equally important to inform your boss about your plans so you can fully dive into the event and enjoy the experience without being afraid to be “uncovered” or feeling guilty for not having communicated it with your manager. Here are some tips on how to convince your boss and receive “the green light” to use your working day as a day to learn from top industry experts, expand your network and upgrade your skills.
Step 1: Have a look at the tracks and speakers. The conference is free to attend so there is no need for allocating a budget for travel, stay, tickets, etc. Your boss should be definitely happy about this benefit!
Step 2: Create a schedule with a list of keynotes / sessions or/and summits you'd like to attend. The full agenda is coming soon, some speakers are hard to get on board :)
Step 3: Define your top three reasons for attending and how is it beneficial to your professional growth and thus to the company you work at:
You will want to explain to your boss as clearly as possible why this conference is unique and why it is worth attending. Don’t forget to mention that the mission of the conference is to unite 100.000 women in tech to share, exchange and learn from each other.
You will want to add that you will position the company while networking with other international participants from all over the word.
You can also mention that learning from world-leading speakers who are experts in the tech field will help you (and thus your company) save time (which equals money) to figure it out on your own. Check out which tracks are the most relevant to your company.
Step 4: Send a formal request-email to your boss (if required).
We hope you found these tips helpful and we are looking forward to seeing you at our conference! Stay safe!
