Have you ever been really interested in attending a training event, but needed to convince your boss to let you go?
Events such as the SMSF day are an important way to learn about the latest issues and strategies around SMSFs, something which may professionals recognise and is why they attend each year.
We understand that sending a staff member to an event can be a significant investment. It’s not just the cost of the ticket, but also the opportunity cost of time away from the office.
Some will see your enthusiasm and pro-activeness to learn in a positive light, knowing that it will benefit both you and the firm. Others may not be so sure, potentially sceptical of the benefits. There may be budget constraints, or concerns about workloads, all of these things can act as a roadblock towards your desire to attend.
However, what if I told you that much of this decision will come down to HOW you present the idea?
The key is preparation, ensuring that you are familiar with the event details and how it applies to your functional role and expertise.
So, if you are keen to attend the SMSF day, it’s now time to convince your boss!
