Justification Toolkit

We understand it can be difficult to ask for approval to attend Greenbuild 2018, November 14-16, so we have created this Justification Toolkit to assist with gaining approval.

We encourage you to review the materials in this section to gain a greater understanding of Greenbuild and how to communicate the value it can provide when attempting to hack attendance approval from your manager. With expert advice, pre-conference justification documents and post-conference reporting templates, your manager or supervisor is sure to appreciate the investment made into your training and development as well as to your company's success.

Download the cost benefit worksheet to calculate the cost of attending and organize your key objectives for attending the expo and/or conference programs.
