Need to convince your boss to let you attend Tech14? UKOUG can help!

18 August 2014

Even though Tech14 is much more economical and effective than many training days or courses, you might struggle to convince your boss that time out of the office and the additional expense of travel and accommodation is worth it for what your organisation will get in return.

If you work with Oracle Technology in a DBA, Developer, Architect, System Administrator, Data Analyst or Technical Engineering role, then you'll know that Tech14 is an essential three days you need to invest in to further your Oracle knowledge.

What's more, if you work in any of these roles and have already had a look at the outstanding agenda, you’ll know you must be in Liverpool between 8 – 10 December.

However, at UKOUG, we know it’s often not as easy as that.

But don’t worry – help is at hand!

UKOUG has put together a Tech14 Justification Template to help you get the sign off you need.

All you need to do is download the document, fill in the gaps and hey presto – you have a justification for your attendance at Tech14 tailored to the needs of you and your organisation, for you to hand to your boss.

Don’t forget that getting sign off can take a while. We sometimes hear of people missing out because they left it too late and couldn’t get sign off in time for the conference. So don’t wait until November– do it now and get your place guaranteed. 

Plus the earlier you book, the more you'll save on your travel and accommodation, which might make all the difference to you getting that all important sign off.

UKOUG looks forward to seeing you at Tech14!
