Convince your boss
Time to Manage Up.
Bosses are busy and are generally concerned about ROI, so let’s go in with some strategy.
Tie your journey in with your boss’s.
If you don’t know your boss’s goals, you should probably start by learning them and figuring out how to help reach them. Chances are, your trip to Conference will align with their interests. Whether it’s our general education sessions, scouting out new products and services, or bringing back life-lessons from our keynote speakers, you can come here on a mission.
Have an after plan.
Going to Conference and gathering knowledge and inspiration is one thing. Putting what you’ve learned into action is a whole other level. Figure out how you’re going to put what you’ve learned into action or at least figure out how you can bring back information for the entire team and let them help reach your boss’s goals, too. We definitely recommend you have a nice team brief ready when you get back.
Promise to bring back samples.
There’s usually a few goodie bags that people return with. Maybe if you promise a few samples? Oh, and bring back business cards and lots of photos, too.
