If your company’s training and development budget is
tight, don’t assume you must miss conferences and seminars. Sure, these events
are costly. But if you’re eager to attend without forking over a registration
fee, try bartering for a reduced rate or even a free pass.
Example: A training
coordinator at a state university in Georgia volunteered as a conference
“session monitor” for a day to help speakers, collect evaluation forms and make
sure audiovisual equipment worked. In return, the organizers let her attend the
last three days for free.
