Do you need some reasons to convince your boss?
Or yourself? To make it easy, send one of the following to your manager.
Dear [Insert your manager’s name here],
I’m interested in attending the Australian Digital Workplace Conference on 23-24 August in Sydney.
This is Australia’s largest SharePoint/Office 365 event – nowhere else is there such a concentrated group of industry professionals expert in SharePoint, Office 365 and related technologies. This conference is all about exploring the benefits and solutions of how we can improve digital capabilities in our workplace.
The Conference website is here: www.dwcau.com.au. You might also consider attending just Day 1 yourself!
I will hear the latest trends, and what’s new in SharePoint, Office 365, Skype for Business, Azure, Yammer, CRM, Project, OneNote and many 3rd party tools. I will have the chance to personally connect with the best in the field: engineers who built the product, Microsoft Certified Masters, and MVPs.
There are over 30 breakout sessions distinctly tailored to audiences interested in Thought Leadership, Business Productivity, Case Studies and Technical streams. This allows us to deep-dive into some topics, and learn first-hand how others are successfully using products and solving challenges. There is no other place I can access to this amount of content – two days, for just $990 incl GST.
My time is limited so I need to pack in as much knowledge and networking as I can into 2 days. There will be a broad range of attendees: end users, business managers, IT administrators and developers. There will be case studies by customers who share their experiences, lessons learned, and success stories. There will be business sessions with a focus around SharePoint/Office365 Solutions, using various technologies to deliver and aimed at business people, power users and site administrators.
The exhibition area will allow me the time to see what else is on offer to help us extend our capability and delivery with digital workplace technologies. This opportunity is golden, as everyone is in the one place, I can use break times to see product demos and find out what’s new!
This is the place to advance my career! There will also be dedicated training opportunities at pre- and post-conference workshops by industry experts and MVPs – so again, a very limited opportunity, to be tutored by the best. I can up-skill in specific areas of expertise.
Here is a blog post with more advantages of attending the conference.
Thank you for considering my request to attend this event. I look forward to your reply.
