<Today's Date>

Dear <manager-name >:

I would like to attend TechMentor, August 20-24, at Microsoft Headquarters in Redmond, WA.

I am confident that the 5 days of sessions and workshops at TechMentor will improve my technical skills and make me a more valuable asset to the company. The techniques I'll learn will make me more efficient and productive in my various IT projects. Saving even 10 minutes an hour would give me over 345 hours per year to spend on additional critical projects. Plus, I'll be able to share these valuable takeaways with the rest of our team.

The 5-day conference price, including pre- and post-conference tutorials and hotel, is just $2,795. Compared to the time and money we spend every year on IT development, this is a small investment that will improve productivity and management of resources.

TechMentor provides in-depth real-world training in 8 tracks:

  • Becoming a Microsoft Virtualization Expert
  • Learn the Secrets of How Microsoft Does IT
  • Managing an Application Delivery Infrastructure
  • MCITP Certification Skills Refresher
  • Security Tactics for Servers and Wireless Networks
  • Smarter Administration for Windows
  • Windows Deployment Servers and Desktops
  • Mastering Windows PowerShell

Because the event taking place at Microsoft Headquarters, there will also be an entire day of training on Microsoft's latest technologies, directly from the people who designed them.

If you have any questions about TechMentor, please let me know, and I will share the conference literature with you. You can also view the conference website at http://techmentorevents.com/.

I hope you'll agree that my attendance at TechMentor will make a significant impact on our organization.

Thank you for considering my request.
