Dear [Boss Name Here],

I’m interested in attending Microsoft’s SharePoint Conference 2014, March 3th-6th in Las Vegas, NV. This is where the experts go.  I will learn priceless knowledge and come back with solutions and strategies that will help us increase our productivity, become more agile, and position us to be more competitive. 

 

COMPELLING SESSIONS

There are more than 200 breakout sessions. I will find out where the industry is heading, the direction of SharePoint and associated products, the best practices, and news about upcoming integration across technologies. From overviews to deep-dive sessions, I will learn about the comprehensive scope of features, functionalities, and solutions that SharePoint and Yammer can offer, and I will bring this information back.

 

THE TOP SOLUTIONS

Hundreds of partners, Microsoft engineers, Microsoft Certified Masters, and MVPs will be attendance. In fact, Microsoft World Partner for 2013 met at SharePoint Conference. On top of having exclusive access to the experts, I will have the opportunity to network with partners, receive training, and get our questions answered while learning how SharePoint and Yammer can provide solutions for us.

 

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

I will have complete access to all of the sessions and content after SharePoint Conference, and can bring it back and share what I have learned throughout our organization. There are also focused hands-on lab environments and instructor lead lab scenarios that I will benefit from. I can take certification classes and attend showcases with new products and features. I will learn about best practices and solutions that will benefit these projects:
