These simple steps will give you everything you need to communicate the value and the long-lasting impacts of attending.
Step 1: Highlight the Benefits
Attending Future Proof Festival may take place next to the beach, but it’s four days packed with a career-transforming experience. Consider how these points will directly impact a specific project you and/or your team is working on:
- Develop critical wealth management skills amidst 80% C-level speakers.
- Network with over 4,500 industry professionals to bring fresh perspectives and potential partnerships.
- Engage in Breakthru Meetings, facilitating impactful connections and business solutions.
We suggest highlighting a few projects you’re working on that will be directly impacted by attending. Giving your boss specific examples will communicate that you’re going in with a plan and show that you’re dedicated to your team’s success.
