Use this justification letter to convince your company to send you to Think 2019.
Hello [insert manager's name],
I'm excited to tell you about a great opportunity for me to learn valuable skills that I can share with the team while advancing my professional development. With your permission, I'd like to attend IBM's Think 2019 conference, which is taking place February 12 – 15 in San Francisco. This event will give me unmatched access to experts, customers, partners, and IBM executives from around the world.
Think is like no other conference for many reasons, including:
- It's the only in-person opportunity to learn how our organization can get the most out of current (and future) IBM products and technologies.
- It offers more than 1,000 labs, 1,000+ certifications, and 250+ deep-dive technical labs to improve my skills.
- It's a place to gather fresh ideas from global thought leaders and enhance our organization's reputation through face-to-face networking opportunities.
This is the approximate cost for me to attend Think 2019:
- Other expenses:
- Total cost:
If you'd like to approve a team of us to represent our organization, the conference offers bundle packages for companies as well.
Thank you for your consideration. You can learn more about Think at ibm.com/think
I'm looking forward to your reply.
