JiveWorld17 Conference Proposal



Re: Proposal to attend JiveWorld17 Conference

I’m writing to ask for approval to attend JiveWorld17, May 1-3 in Las Vegas.

JiveWorld is three full days of communication and collaboration best practices from a diverse base of customers, industry influencers and product experts. There will be more than 40 case studies, hands-on training sessions, and customer-lead demos.

This one conference convenes an entire community of Jive experts. At a total cost of about $2,527, it's the most cost-effective way to ensure that we’re getting the most from our investment.

In particular, I’d like to focus on finding solutions or best practices that could benefit these projects:

• [add project or initiative]
• [add project or initiative]
• [add project or initiative]

In addition to 40 breakout sessions featuring Jive Software customers, the conference also offers the chance to engage directly Jive product experts, consultants and strategy and technology partners. And the Jive Solution Showcase, which features deep dives into Jive product demos, is an ideal place to pick up new ideas to drive more value from our Jive community.

Here’s an approximate breakdown of conference costs:

Airfare: $450
Transportation: (round trip taxi from airport to hotel): $40
Hotel: (3 nights at $189 tax) $567
Meals: (most meals covered by event) $75
Registration Fee*: $1,395
Total: $2,527

This conference should deliver incredible value. I’ll develop new contacts with industry peers and gain knowledge in specific areas of the Jive platform. These “wins” will pay off in the form of streamlined practices, tested solutions, and a network of Social Business Software peers to network with for advice and support further down the line.

I’ll submit a post-conference report that will include an executive summary, lessons learned, tips and a set of recommendations to maximize our current and future investments in Jive.

Thank you for considering this request. I look forward to your reply.


*If we send three or more people the registration fee drops to $1,125.
