Despite writing about my approval to attend Microsoft Ignite in May only a few days ago, I’m disappointed to say that approval has been removed, and I will no longer be attending.
With the local economy in my area under some upheaval, there are many cost-saving measures being implemented at my company and this is one of those measures.
I can understand the reasoning, although I am very disappointed. Unfortunately I can’t put an actual dollar figure on the value my attendance would bring, which is the only way I think it could be justified at this point.
Here’s hoping that my request for 2016 fares better next year!
