Convince Your Boss

Convince Your Boss

Getting conferences and trips approved is tough, especially when you work in a food product facility. To help overcome those hurdles, we’ve come up with some tips and templates to help you get started.

Focus On What You’ll Bring Back To The Company

Does your company have to get certain training certifications like Produce Safety Training or Foreign Supplier Verification to be in compliance with government regulations or buyer demands? Highlight how you can get those certifications at Safe Food California. Beyond that, stress the exciting speakers who will be discussing everything from Food Safety 101 to Recall Readiness.

Plan Proactively

We all know that when it comes to food safety, there never seems to be enough hours in the day. When you talk to your boss, come prepared with a plan for how the plant will run while you are at the conference. Set up schedules and deadlines for projects to show you’ve thought the trip through and the operation will run smoothly in your absence.

Overcome “It’s Too Much Time”

This year’s conference is specifically designed with you in mind. By choosing the track that works best for you, you will be able to focus on the information that you and your boss find valuable. Show the sessions you would like to attend and the time needed away from the plant. Work with your supervisor and review the educational sessions on the topics you would like to attend and the topics they would like to attend, then both goals are achieved.

Prove That Networking Matters

Making organic connections with industry leaders at Safe Food California is not only great for increasing business, it is also a great way to gain valuable insight, learn from industry leaders, and elevate the presence of your company. With over 400 attendees and 20 speakers, this conference is 4 days of nonstop education, networking, and inspiration.
