Need help getting the approval to attend?

Let’s face it..

When you’re working for someone else, it’s hard to ask permission to spend their money, especially when it comes to attending a conference. The ticket cost, airfare, hotel, and other expenses start to add up in your boss’ head before you can mutter the words, “Can I go?”

We’ve got some tips to help you get that approval to register from your manager!
