So you want to attend ESPC19, The European SharePoint, Office 365 & Azure Conference in Prague, next December but you need to convince your manager / supervisor first. It is important when you ask your boss to make sure you know the location, date, cost, can summarise what you’ll learn and the benefits you can bring back to your organisation. To save you time we have made a customisable letter you can send to your manager / supervisor.
