Get the green light from your manager to attend DoceboInspire

As you’ve probably heard, we’re hosting our first conference! DoceboInspire will take place in Boston on September 18-19, 2017. We couldn’t be more excited to assemble the best L&D analysts, thought leaders, and professionals to network, learn, and ultimately shape the future of the eLearning industry.

Before you start packing your bags, you’ll have to convince your boss that it’s worth the investment and time away from work to attend. Read on for some tips for showing your boss how DoceboInspire can help you reach your organization’s L&D goals.

Building Your Case

As with any new project or idea, the key to gaining executive buy-in to attend any conference is to be prepared for the conversation and/or, in some cases, submitting a letter or an official request for approval.

Your success is your manager’s success – in your letter and/or conversation, be sure to outline everything you wish to get out of the conference and exactly how it will help you improve your performance in your role.

Build a business case for attending DoceboInspire that outlines the following:

  • The skills you’d like to develop
  • The goals you’d like to achieve (both at the conference and afterwards)
  • The topics/sessions you’d like to attend
  • The connections you’d like to make
  • The overall value of the conference
  • The cost of attending

When calculating the cost to attend, keep in mind that DoceboInspire attendees receive a preferred rate at the Westin Boston Waterfront. Also, the earlier you register, the less expensive your event registration will cost – early bird pricing for DoceboInspire is in effect until June 30th.

  • And much, much more!

Be sure to choose the sessions you wish to attend based on the specific goals and challenges you face in your role, at your organization.
