Getting Approved for Training

We recently received a request for Joan to write an assistant with some tips on persuading her executive to invest in her attendance at the 2016 Annual Conference for Administrative Excellence. We found that many of you may actually want to access these tips as well as we’re often asked for tips on getting approved for training. We’re posting Joan’s message here for that purpose.

My first word of advice is to not use the word “cost.” Immediately that can send a negative to an executive. Instead you want to use the word “investment” because that is what your company is doing. They are investing in education for you that they will get back from your learning and executing the good ideas you learn at our conference.
