Convincing the boss to pay for you to come to Social Day

So you are a Social Media professional, a marketer or someone in your organisation who has been given the task of looking after client accounts or your own company Social Media channels. You want to come to Social Day but need to convince the boss to let you put the ticket on the company or get time off to let you attend.

Staying on top of the current trends, understanding the challenges and looking at where future of social media is going is integral to doing your job effectively.  Social Day offers insight from over 15 speakers, in the format of workshops, presentations and panel debates.  A chance to network and discuss the issues with other delegates who are as passionate about social media as you are.
We understand that convincing the powers that be to take a day out of the office for an event is often difficult, in fact getting you to come out of the office for anything other than annual leave is difficult.  Your dedicated and hard working so why should you take a day out?
