Sponsorship Keynote Testimonials

Two words. Or is it three? Kim Skildum-Reid. She blew the doors off the joint.

Mark Sabourin, Sponsorship Toronto

Kim’s keynote presentation at One-Zero 2019 was a superb conference highlight. Her straight-talking take on the ‘do’s’ and ‘don’ts’ of best practice sponsorship captivated and entertained our audience. Book Kim – she’s great to work with and will commit wholeheartedly to the success of your event

Patrick Haslett, One-Zero (Dublin)

Kim is one of the top speakers in the sponsorship industry. We recently invited her back to Sweden and once again she made a huge success with her enthusiasm on stage and great expertise regarding sponsorship issues. Kim brings ideas and practical tools needed when working with sponsorship, which can be applied locally here in Sweden and globally. We look forward to welcoming her back to Sweden soon!

Niklas Birgetz, Swedish Sponsorship Association (2012)

Kim is one of the top keynoters in the sponsorship industry and a real powerhouse on stage. Her content is global without being vague; even though Sweden is quite a ways from Australia geographically, Kim left the audience at our national sponsorship industry forum with plenty of ideas and insights that could instantly be applied in both a Swedish and an international context. We look forward to welcoming her back to Stockholm soon!

Josefine Hådell, Swedish Sponsorship Association (2010)

Kim was an overwhelming success at our sponsorship event back. Her presentation style was engaging and entertaining but most importantly she was very informative and effective. On top of that Kim couldn’t have been nicer to deal with or more accommodating with her time. I would definitely recommend Kim for any sponsorship event

Olivia Commune, Infopresse (Montreal)

Kim spoke at Exp’s African Experiential Marketing Summit, presenting a paper on ‘Last Generation Sponsorship’. Her content was completely relevant, giving examples, case studies and a clear direction of how to overcome challengers and maximise leveraging of your brand in your sponsorship properties.

Dave Boon, Exp Agency (South Africa)

The world around us has changed and it is more important than ever that we prepare ourselves to succeed – both today and into the future. At a time when picking the resources that will maximize our investments of both time and money is critical, sponsorship expert Kim Skildum-Reid brings a value to the table that is hard to beat. Whether you are a sponsor or a sponsorship-seeker, the return on your investment from this cutting-edge training will come back to you many times over.

Steven Wood Schmader, International Festivals & Events Association (IFEA World)

Kim has been a keynote speaker at two of our conferences which also included a workshop session. Her skills are well respected in New Zealand and she was a drawcard to attract conference delegates, many of whom had attended workshops or sessions with her before. Kim continues to share up to date information, challenges the status quo and provides insights that are incredibly valuable for both sponsors and sponsorship seekers. Using local case studies provides a real situation that participants can relate to and apply.

Kim is always incredibly obliging as a speaker providing great value and is available to delegates outside of the session which is a great bonus. She involves herself in the conference learning and sharing. We would love to have her every year to hear the latest information around sponsorship and marketing.
