The Summit will be hosted at the Evergreen Brick Works, a former quarry and industrial site located in the Don River valley in Toronto. The Brick Works operated for nearly 100 years and provided bricks used in many well-known Toronto landmarks. Today, it's been re-imagined as a community hub dedicated to sustainability and ecology.
We all know that attending at least one conference a year is a great idea for personal development. We also know that there are associated expenses with travelling to these events, and sometimes these expenses need a little extra justification. We’ve put together a letter template to help convince your boss that the Summit is totally worth the investment!
