Why You Should Convince Your Boss

Attending the Women of Silicon Roundabout event can serve as a crucial stepping stone in your professional development, providing a vital tool to help you grow in your career. To make the most of your experience, it’s highly beneficial to gain the support of your organisation by informing your manager about how attending the event can benefit both your individual growth and align with company objectives.

We understand the challenges posed by the current climate when persuading your boss the value and investment in attending, such as budget restraints and the difficulty in getting time off work, especially if you work in a smaller team. To assist you in getting started, we have created a helpful template and provided some useful tips for writing to your boss.


Top Tips For Writing a Convincing Letter

  • Explain the purpose of the conference: Explain how it is relevant to your role and the company’s objectives. Highlight the specific skills, knowledge or insights you will gain by attending and how you will apply them in your role and your team.
  • Provide a clear agenda: Include a detailed agenda of the conference, highlighting sessions or workshops that are most relevant to your job role and career goals.
  • Quantify the benefits: Provide specific examples of how attending will benefit the company, such as learning new technologies, expanding your network, or gaining insights into industry trends that can improve company performance. Identify any valuable takeaways which could result in a positive return on investment for your organisation.
  • Address costs and logistics: Be transparent about the costs associated with attending the conference, including registration fees, travel expenses, and any other relevant costs. Provide a clear plan for how you will manage these costs and ensure that the company receives a positive return on investment.
  • Emphasize your commitment to the company: Convey your passion and commitment to the company, and explain how attending the conference will help you to better serve the company’s goals. Reassure your boss that you will remain fully engaged with your job responsibilities while attending the conference, and provide a plan for how you will share what you learn with the rest of the team.
