The Annual EXPAND Conference and 20th Anniversary Awards Dinner
“Getting to Yes!”
It is not always easy to ask for approval to attend training courses or conferences, especially in the budget conscious environment we are currently in. To assist you in seeking approval from your Executive for the EXPAND conference we have created a template for you to attach along with the details for the conference and awards dinner.
Some tips for your sales pitch!
Professional learning and development is important to build on your skills, knowledge and experience
Provide your executive with details on what plans you have made to ensure the office runs smoothly while you are away and what the return on investment will be for them
What can you take back to the office and provide them with an update when you return so they can see benefit
Share what you will have learned upon returning with the other EAs in your department and Cc your Executive
Emphasise the importance of networking and learning with your peers and EAs from other departments in the APS
The Bureau will take time to understand the individual needs of your conference or business event. We can provide a range of options to address your requirements within your budget guidelines.
