Good Afternoon _________,

I am writing to request your approval to attend the EmpowerDenver 2018 Conference on May 14th & 15th in Denver. This event is one of the largest conferences for Women in Business in the state of Colorado. It covers topics of leadership, goal setting, negotiation, communication, and collaboration for women in business roles and encourages women to practice leadership in their workspace. I have included a link to the website so that you can view the itinerary and list of prestigious speakers that will be hosting workshops at this event.

EmpowerDenver 2018 provides a unique learning environment that is hard to duplicate. While an abundance of knowledge can be gained in our office, it can be hard to provide specialized, quality content that goes beyond a specific profession. This continued education will provide me with valuable leadership tools that I will take back to the office for the company's benefit and can increase visibility for our company through networking. 

Many of the workshops at this business conference are clearly aligned with our companies values/goals and they specifically address some of my biggest challenges in the workplace. Learning from real success stories means I will save time and money trying to figure out what works through trial and error. I strongly believe this conference will challenge my current way of thinking, but will also provide me with actionable advice and take-aways. 

The cost of the conference includes 2 active workshops, 6 educational workshops, 2 networking experiences, 2 lunches, and 2 breakfasts for a total cost of $385 before 2/14 or $450 after 2/14. 

I feel this conference could benefit other women in our office and would like to point out that EmpowerDenver offers a business table option for $2,400 that includes a package with all of the same benefits for 6 attendees. 

 

I look forward to your response,
