Tips to Convince your Boss

Need help convincing your manager? Here are some useful tips:

  1. PLAN AHEAD. Use the brochure to highlight the specific classes that appeal to you to create your customized learning program.  Address specific pain points your project or team is currently experiencing and tie them to the classes that will help you with your challenges. Go armed with this information! 
  2. SHARE THE KNOWLEDGE. Offer to take your new knowledge back to the office and hold a training session for your co-workers. Plan to keep a list at the conference of ideas you want to implement when returning to the office, and share them with your co-workers when you return. 
  3. SAVE BIG. Approach your manager early to gain approval and receive great discounts! Save up to $600 per person plus a free hotel night when you register by September 18, 2009 using our Super Early Bird discount. Combine two discounts for maximum savings, there are many to choose from—Early Bird pricing, alumni savings, group discounts, Bring a Manager, PowerPass discounts, hotel discounts, and more!
  4. WORK IT!
