How to convince your manager that you should attend the Tribal Empower Conference

Posted by Lauren Hancox on March 9, 2018

Possibility, Curiosity, Openness… we lose this after a while in the same job role as we're often expected to just 'have the answer' as a professional.

Often our objective of the day is to just 'get stuff done' … We say 'empower yourself!' have the intention of the beginners mind, nothing good happens sat at your desk. Get out, meet people in the sector with the same challenges as you, learn new ways of overcoming those challenges, have the space and time to think differently and feel inspired to inspire. Don't underestimate the power of Empower 2019. 

In July 2019, Tribal is once again combining the SITS:Vision, Maytas and ebs user conferences to bring you the Tribal Empower Conference.

If budgets are tight or there are deadlines coming up, it can be hard to convince your manager that you should attend industry events. We have put together a list of reasons why our conference will be beneficial to you and your wider team, which you can use when convincing your manger that you should book your tickets to the Tribal Empower Conference today:

 

You'll discover how to overcome common challenges in education with our eight hours of networking opportunities

At the Empower Conference, we have over eight hours of dedicated networking, as well as our evening dinner at the end of the first day. This will give you the opportunity to meet and network with peers who are focused on the same challenges as you. Not only this, but you will also get to meet individuals and third-party exhibitors who work in different areas of education, some of who will be very familiar with the same challenges but will have a solution or will be tackling them in a different way. If there's ever a chance to get a new perspective on a scenario that you could take back to your team, the Tribal Empower Conference is chance to do this.

You can use your takeaways to influence change at your institution/company

The Empower Conference agenda is coming together, and we will shortly be releasing our list of breakout sessions. Delegates will have a wide range of sessions to choose from, plus our Higher Education attendees will have access to our SITS:Vision User Group. Our sessions cover everything from thought-leadership to technical classes and training programmes based upon our software and services. Going to the Tribal Empower Conference may help you bring new ideas to a particular project you are working on - and will give you the chance to share your takeaways with your team post-conference. We always try where possible to forward on our presentation slides to delegates, making sharing even easier.

You'll get hands on experience and demos of our products in our Tribal interactive zone

Tribal has some really exciting projects in the pipeline, including our much-anticipated Tribal Edge product. Tribal's Empower Conference will give you a chance to see the products first-hand and even demo the systems yourself. With mobile apps like Engage you may find yourself going back to your institution/company with a ready-made pitch to help improve student/staff communication. You will also be able to discuss any queries regarding your existing products, where our sales and support teams will be on hand to answer any questions you may have.
