Convince Your Boss

Sample Letter

Dear {Name},

I’d like to attend Spinnaker Summit 2023 taking place May 8-9 in Vancouver, Canada. I’ve researched many conferences and found this is the ONLY technical AND business conference focused on modern software delivery techniques using Spinnaker— with content from the community for service providers, enterprises, and cloud providers.

Spinnaker Summit is taking place with cdCon + GitOpsCon, all co-locating at Open Source Summit North America. At Spinnaker Summit, nearly 400 talented individuals from across the ecosystem will gather to share learnings, highlight innovation, and discuss the future of continuous delivery.

Here’s how I envision my attendance at cdCon strengthening our company:

  • cdCon offers a variety of sessions, including presentations, deep-dive technical lectures, and visionary keynotes from industry leaders. Attending these sessions will allow me to build my knowledge and learn best practices from other community members.
  • The “hallway track” at cdCon will allow me to meet the top technical minds in the ecosystem. I hope to meet others that face the same challenges and problems we do so we can work together to solve technical issues now and in the future. Creating strategic partnerships at the event could be very useful in the future when we encounter new challenges.

You can learn more about the conference and view last year’s keynotes and other videos here.

If I register before March 19, the fee is only $795. Included in the registration fee is access to all keynotes and sessions, the sponsor showcase, hallway tracks and lounges.

I would be happy to write a post-conference report detailing what I’ve learned and recommend any changes we can implement to improve our practices.

Please let me know if you have any questions. I hope we can make this opportunity work.

{Your Name}
