I love sponsorship leverage (aka, sponsorship activation) and write about it a lot. In this blog, I’ve tried to pick the most important of the 50-odd leverage blogs on this site. It’s probably 60-90 minutes of reading and viewing, but you’ll probably also have a few pages of notes and ideas.
If you like any of these, I encourage you to share them on Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, or whatever social media you prefer. Let’s spread the word (and thank you)!!
