TO SUPPORT YOUR DEVELOPMENT

I would like to share information about Design Matters 23 (In Copenhagen & Online), a conference I want to attend, and I would like your approval for [COMPANY NAME] to cover the costs. The conference will happen on September 27-28, 2023 in Copenhagen. This event is a great opportunity for me to grow professionally, while making meaningful connections to the design community, not only from Denmark, but globally. My participation will help in supporting and amplifying the voices of designers from different corners of the world, giving them a global stage and opening opportunities to be recognized as the leaders they are, but also to connect with me and other attendees, who are highly specialized in design, tech and creativity.
This conference will bring me inspiration, education, and connections needed to continue growing successfully in my career. But this isn't all. Design Matters in not the standard conference. They put focus into making the event a safe space, diverse, inclusive and fun! I have no doubt that it will make me better at my job, and I'm sure others in my team would appreciate the opportunity as well.
If you feel like getting to know more about Design Matters 23, you can have a look at the lineup of speakers from their upcoming event in Sept 2023., or taking a look at the insightful themes they will be presenting at the conference I want to attend.
I’m sure that participating will directly influence the quality of my work at [ORGANIZATION'S NAME], and when I get back, I’m happy to share my learnings with the team. I would love to present what ideas from the conference we could discuss or implement.
The approximate cost of my participation would be:
