Ask your Manager

Welcome to edit this text to ask your manager's approval and/or sponsorship for your attendance to our Symposium. We hope this helps you take the time to keep developing professionally.


Dear [Manager's Name],

I’m seeking for your approval to attend 16th Project Management Symposium organised by PMI Singapore Chapter on 11–12 November 2021. The theme for this year is ‘Creating Stakeholder Value: Navigating in a VUCA 2.0 World’

This prestigious event brings subject matter experts from across different fields and provides an excellent platform to discuss economy and industry trends, latest developments, best practices and future trajectory in Project, Program and Portfolio Management, and Leadership. Here is their one-pager brochure:

There are ample benefits that I will acquire, for example:

  • gain new perspective & a practical toolkit which I can apply to work in our organisation right away
  • learn from 15+ Top Tier Leading Experts with their stories, professional skills expertise & industry trends, plus complimentary access to the video recordings and materials after the event.
  • expand professional networks with up to 500 Project/Program/Portfolio Management Professionals, Executives, Scholars & Practitioners
  • earn 16 PDUs (Professional Development Units) to maintain my [insert the PMI certification(s) you hold] certification

I intend to participate the event [choose: In-person at Marina Bay Sands or Virtually]

They offer discounted corporate registration for 3+ people if we reach out to them. The investment for me to participate individually is SGD [xx, please choose the rate from for In-person rate and from for Virtual rate]

I strongly believe my attendance is critical, not only for my professional development, but to improve daily work in our organisation.  If required, I’ll submit a post-event report with an executive summary, major takeaways and a set of recommendations. I’ll also share relevant information with key people in our organisation.

I appreciate your approval and will work to make sure we get the full value of this event.

Yours sincerely,
