Convincing Change: What to Tell Your Boss

We want you to be there in Las Vegas with other Change Leaders! Sometimes there is a need to convince your leadership reasons why your should attend, and below are some key areas of opportunity to help you prepare for the request:

  • Timing is everything: The cost is much lower earlier than later so getting your ask in early is key. Consider discussing in your one on one meetings or over lunch.
  • Remember the Business Case: This conference will not only benefit you as a professional, but your organization will benefit as well with all of the information you will be obtaining. Don’t forget to share this information. Within change management letting people know, “what’s in it for them” is important! Make an outline with bullet points or justifications on why it will benefit you and your organization. Show that you will make the most of it, and why networking and attending the workshops and sessions are important. Ask yourself what your short-term and long-term goals are with your organization’s objectives, and pair them with sessions that will contribute the most to the goals. Explain how it will make the company more profitable, functional and flexible.

Success Stories from Previous Conference Attendees

"I have attended the last two conferences for two very different reasons. First, in the start-up stage of our Organizational Change Management Office we needed development information, the roadmap. By the next year we were ready for more in-depth development and leading topics. The ACMP Change Management Conference met the mark!"

"To gather with like-minded professionals from across the globe to share practices, trends and learnings is an incredible way to build community and connect with a stellar network of change leaders. The experience is inspiring, re-energizing and quite simple a lot of fun."
- Sylvia Doane Stephenson | Future State

"People attend the ACMP conference because it supports their development as change practitioners. The quality of conversations raises the bar for anyone involved in organizations as change agents longing for creating sustainable impact."
- Xavier Garcia-Weibel | Swisscom AG

"What an amazing experience and I look forward to future ACMP conferences! The opportunity to participate in a conference that not only shares resources of what you need today as a change management professional, but informs your thinking on what is needed for you to become a change agent going forward. I had the privilege of contributing to Change Management 2014 by co-facilitating a World Cafe and "What I wish I knew about change and transition." The wisdom that emerged from the cafe was very representative of the caliber of thinking throughout the conference as a whole."
