Need to make the case for meeting me in Thailand?

Use this template to justify your trip and secure your seat at my signature retreat, Sense of Self.

Dear Boss,

I’d like your approval to attend the Sense of Self retreat, attended by the most forward-thinking women leaders, for 7 days of inspired learning, growth and self-discovery from October 12-19 in Phuket, Thailand.

Here’s why I should attend:

·   The community of attendees is what sets the Sense of Self Retreat apart from other retreats and conferences – I’ll be among the top women leaders who are actively changing the way companies innovate. Leaders who are ready to make huge leaps both personally and professionally. Leaders that are actively changing organizations. These are the people I want to learn from and grow with, and this retreat will be a great way to do that.

·    Attending Sense of Self will allow me to: better communicate with my team, create a plan to achieve my personal and professional goals, fully articulate the value that I bring to the organization, and help me become more self-aware, which we both know if a key predictor of success.

·    The retreat is facilitated by an HR Professional with over 15 years of Human Resources experience. Her mission is to create a corporate America that is inclusive, innovative, diverse and authentic. That fully aligns with our company vision, mission, values, and goals.

If I register now, I’ll be able to get an additional bonus of 3 Leadership Coaching sessions. Because of the level of personal and professional growth that I will achieve that week, I think that the return on your investment will be well worth it.

·    Airfare: $1000

·    Retreat: $3200

·    Total Investment in Me: $4200
