Convince your boss

Get a yes from your boss!

Here are some useful arguments in case your manager does not realize the benefits of your participation at Øredev.

In today’s world where knowledge is power, it should come as no surprise that the most valuable asset for any business is the knowledge of its employees. And within our current knowledge-based economy, competent and confident employees are the foundation for a successful business.

  • Meet the greatest minds in the industry at one place, no need to travel!
  • Discuss issues from your daily work with experts.
  • Discover and learn about the next generation of tools and methods within your line of work.
  • Master a brand new framework or technique at one of our workshops.
  • Meet colleagues and exchange experiences — Øredev is a great place to mingle and make new contacts.
  • Broaden your knowledge since Øredev covers the whole software development cycle.
  • Get inspired!

Back at your workplace, you can use the videos to explain the key takeaways to your colleagues. Let your boss know what's in it both for your current and future customers!

Our Best Tip: Put It In Writing!

Take the time to analyze Øredev on paper, give it to your boss, then follow up with a verbal request, your boss will know you are serious.
Sure, it takes time. But if you're routinely turned down for conference attendance, it is hurting your personal development in addition to missing opportunities to improve your company's operations.

Here is a model of letter you could be inspired by:
