Okay, so there’s no award for best sponsorship training. But my AU/NZ workshops have sold out for three years running, and they do get rave reviews across-the-board, plus participants fly in from across the region, Asia, North America, and the Middle East.
So, you could certainly do a lot worse than spending a jam-packed, inspiring, and really fun day or two with me, learning how to make best practice sponsorship work for you.
For 2017, I’m offering workshops for both sponsors and sponsorship seekers:
Sponsorship seekers – 14-15 June 2017
Sponsors – 16 June 2017
Sponsorship seekers – 19-20 June 2017
Sponsors – 21 June 2017
Short overviews of both workshops are below. These workshops follow a process of theory, case studies, practical skills development, group exercises, and free-flowing Q&A. For complete workshop outlines, download the full PDF brochure.
Getting to “Yes”: Strategies, secrets, and street smarts for dramatically increasing your bottom line
This two-day workshop for sponsorship seekers is the gold standard for sponsorship training. Kim Skildum-Reid works primarily on the sponsors’ side, and knows what they expect, what you’re competing against, and what it takes to get them to “yes”.
This workshop is highly interactive and incorporates group, small group, and individual exercises, as well as ample opportunity for addressing your questions. Case studies and examples are used throughout, and your property may even be chosen for one of several live demonstrations.
You will learn to…
- Structure your offers so they are worth far more money
- Create a proposal that makes it easy for a sponsor to say “yes”
- Identify new potential sponsors and sponsor categories
- Significantly upsell current sponsors
- Sell sponsorship on a short lead-time
- Navigate sponsor politics to your advantage
