Tips to Convince Your Boss

Need help justifying your attendance?
The best way to gain approval for the conference is to align your company's goals with the conference program.

SAVE BIG. Approach your manager early to gain approval and receive great discounts! Save up to $400 dollars per person with Super Early Bird pricing, plus we offer alumni savings, or you can easily combine the conference with a multi-day training class or a group discount to save even more!

WORK IT! Let your manager know that you plan to take advantage of the myriad of networking opportunities. There’s no sense in reinventing the wheel, so make sure you learn from others in both formal and informal ways: an evening reception, speaker book signings, Meet the Speakers at lunch, STAR Presenter One-on-One, bonus sessions, and more!

FOCUS ON THE BENEFITS. Strrrretch that dollar! Tell your manager you are going to learn how to do more with less—including ways to control costs and increase revenue while still bringing a quality product to market.

SOLUTIONS. Share with your manager that you plan to attend one of the largest testing Expos in the world at STARWEST! Meet with solution providers to watch demos of their tools and services and find exactly the right solutions for your business.

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. Type them up and email them to your manager and co-workers.
