TINYcon in Seattle, September 19-21Have you reserved your seat for TINYcon yet? Well, you probably should since tickets are going fast and there are only nine weeks left until the conference. Gasp.

Its not an everyday occasion that youll be under one roof with some of the smartest and most innovative leaders from around the world. These arent folks who just preach without practice — theyre line managers, directors, C-suite executives, and HR professionals who are on the front line of reinventing employee engagement and performance management at their own organizations.

But we understand that its never an easy feat to get approval for business travel. To make it easier for you, we put together an email template that you can use to convince your manager or supervisor:

Hi [manager’s first name],

I’m interested in attending TINYcon, the conference that TINYpulse is putting on about reinventing employee engagement and performance management. It’s coming up on September 19–21 in Seattle, WA, and I’d like to run it by you first.

As an attendee, I’ll gain:

  • A network of C-suite executives, directors, and HR professionals from companies such as IBM, Yahoo, Zillow, and more
  • Innovative ideas and insights on employee engagement, talent, and performance management
  • Knowledge on how to get the most out of the TINYpulse platform and TINYpulse certification


The costs include: 

Registration: $XX

Flight: $XX

Hotel: $747 (3 nights)

Meals: $50 (all meals will be covered except for dinner on the 19th)


I believe I’ll be able to come back with some great insights and new ideas for our organization’s culture, which I’ll be happy to share with the rest of the team. 

Please let me know if going to TINYcon is approved.

Thank you,




TINYcon tickets
