Convince Your Boss

Want to come to All Day Hey! 2024, but need to justify it to your boss or manager? Here's a template to help you convince them of the business benefits of attending (and investing in your personal development by purchasing your ticket ๐ŸŽ‰).


I'd like to ask whether you'd consider sending me to All Day Hey! 2024 as part of my ongoing professional development โ€“ it's a single-track conference for developers, designers and technology leaders in Leeds on Thursday 2nd May, 2024.

I know there are lots of tech conferences out there, but this one really appeals to me because the line-up and topics this year are so strong and relevant to the work we do here. I think it's a good opportunity to learn from some of the industry's leading experts who are working with the technologies, tools and methodologies we use daily.

In addition to supporting my own professional development, I hope that I'll be able to apply the insights I take from the conference for the benefit of the business.

I think it could also be useful for other members of the team, especially %TALENTED_COLLEAGUES_OR_TEAMS% โ€“ if you are onboard with the idea and want to extend the invitation.

About the conference

It's the North of England's leading conference for developers and designers โ€“ a single day conference and networking event, with speakers from some of the world's leading tech businesses.

This year, they've got speakers from Monzo, Samaritans and Co-op amongst others, and there's an industry networking event/social afterwards.

Themes include deep-dives into the fundamentals of the web, fun experiments with new technologies, migrating large codebases in big organisations and cultural reflections on the way we work.

The full line-up and schedule can be found on their site.


The conference fee is ยฃ169 including fees and tax. Recordings of the day will also be published after the event for me to revisit the content delivered on the day.

Thanks for considering my request โ€“ I hope you see the value in me attending.

Kind regards,
