Justification Toolkit - Getting Your Managers Approval
In today’s lean economy, many travel and education budgets have been cut. Yet, there is still a great need for employee training. The education you will receive at the EnergyOcean International Conference & Exhibition is very valuable, and you may need to validate to management your reasons for wanting to attend.
EnergyOcean International has compiled a Justification Toolkit to help you get manager approval. We included several helpful tips and documents, including a customized letter to management, to save you time.
When you address your manager, stress the training, workshops and technical sessions you will attend, the companies you will visit at the exhibition (see our current Exhibitor List) and the connections you will form at the networking events.
A few ideas to include when compiling your request:
Conference Take-aways: Offer to share your experience at EnergyOcean International with co-workers. Bring home your conference materials for your post-show report to your team. Every attendee to the event will have access to the proceedings at the conclusion of the conference.
Exhibitor Guide: The Exhibition runs concurrently with the EnergyOcean International Conference. Attendees have ample time to explore the hall, see product demonstrations and talk with vendors about their services. It’s the perfect time to investigate products your company may need, without the expense of doing independent research and traveling to the vendor’s site.
Industry Experts: At EnergyOcean International you will have direct access to hundreds of market experts. Information sharing, question-and-answer sessions and networking are a vital part of the conference experience. The offshore renewable energy solutions you will discover during the conference can save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars in consulting fees.
Networking: Interact with your peers around the global offshore renewable energy industy. These networking contacts are invaluable once you return to work and can provide input far into the future on a variety of work-related topics.
ROI & Cost Savings: We understand that spending several days out of the office can be expensive, so we’ve worked to bring you savings wherever possible.
