Every year, I offer a limited number of public workshops for both sponsors and rightsholders. Here is just a small sampling of their feedback. I’ve also included participants’ responses to the question, “Do you believe you will be able to implement your new skills in your organisation?”. Click here to skip down to those responses.
I am so excited about the results I can produce and the buy-in I can generate/influence within my organisation. Love the course structure. Great Job! Incredible value – info, strategies, resources, network, coaching, expertise. You rock, Kim! Thanks for sharing your wisdom and expertise.
Kim, you are the most inspirational sponsorship person in the world. This is my third workshop with you in the last nine years and I will keep coming!!
Thank you very much for an engaging and motivating few days.
Best part was breaking down the value add of sponsorships. Reviewing from the ground up makes it easy to understand why we actually engage in sponsorships.
Best aspects of the workshop? Everything! A whole new world has been opened up to me. Awesome, clear, concise information and materials, and you are a fantastic, engaging, entertaining facilitator.
Thank you for a great workshop. I’m busting with ideas! This was my first formal training in sponsorship after working in the industry for a few years. All the content was really valuable.
Thank you for an awesome two days – literally the best two days of content in any course/seminar I’ve been to.
I loved the practical, step-by-step nature of the course. I could totally see how it could apply to my job. Also loved Kim’s style of presentation and workshopping. Thank you so much for the insight!!
Having access to the steps and confidence from allying it to real world projects in the session has made me certain we can implement these skills in our organisation.
Kim is amazing!
Kim, your workshops were fantastic! I cannot wait to implement your techniques into my workplace. I loved seeing real life examples and creating real, simple, and exciting leverage ideas that can be easily transferred across a range of our programs and events. Look forward to putting it all into practice. Will be back next year!
[This workshop] has blown apart my set ideas about sponsoring. Great workshop.
The best aspect was the strategic focus of the course. I had attended other courses and was worried this might be the same. This was an excellent, engaging presentation that has made me re-examine our approach to sponsorship.
Excellent presentation skills. Engaging workshop on leveraging and sponsorship measurement.
Lots of light bulb moments. Excited to change the way we work with sponsors. Lots of opportunities.
Covered a wide range of relevant tools to better manage our sponsorship portfolio. Great, accessible case studies. I liked the ability to put tools into practice with other participants.
The best part was keeping the admin in the book and learning more about involving the company and the partners in the process.
Relevant, to the point. It explains and makes us so aware of what we need to be to obtain and keep a sponsor. The hands-on nature makes it so real. Kim, your enthusiasm and learnings you are prepared to share with us are so inspiring. I have learned some amazing skills and feel I can carry so many of them forward in future roles.
The practical brainstorm was great. So easy and well-executed, and definitely a tactic that I’ll be using with the stakeholders internally.
Everything about this workshop was great!! I’ve enjoyed every minute. It’s so full of insight, revelations, and new knowledge.
Really useful session. Glad I attended.
Really enjoyed the two day workshop. Was very informative and learnt new skills that I can’t wait to put into action. I always felt sponsorship procurement was a bit scary. Now, I feel that I can be more confident with an approach to a potential sponsor. Thanks, Kim.
This has been a fantastic workshop. I think it is great value and I have come away with a huge amount of ideas, but also much more confidence in how to approach our sponsorship.
The best aspect is Kim’s hands-on approach – not just being talked at. This philosophy of sponsorship is wonderful – makes sense and feels doable. It’s a springboard to a new way of doing business.
The best aspect was the clear explanation of the methodology to develop a sponsorship proposal, the practical approach, and ideas.
Entertaining while also being hugely informative. I felt I was discovering endless invisible insights into the world of sponsorship – money can’t buy stuff. Thank you!
Thank you for a wonderful, inspiring, thought-provoking, and relevant session.
The workshop was loaded with info, and Kim is a concise and succinct presenter.
Really enthusiastic and passionate speaker that makes learning enjoyable and easy. I enjoyed the practical brainstorms that help you develop the skills being taught. I also liked the case studies and examples of sponsorships that really get it!
I enjoyed changing the traditional thinking and reversing expectations. Thank you, very insightful.
The presenter was motivated and passionate. I’m pleased I attended, as the content was very useful.
Loved the case studies and practical exercises. Great speaker, down to earth, kept me engaged the whole time!
Excellent speaker with valuable knowledge. Excellent topics, which were very relevant. Kim is very engaging and she really knows her stuff!
Really practical advice. Lots of discussion in the workshop amongst attendees. It’s given me the confidence to reframe our offer.
I really enjoyed Kim’s hands-on approach, and that she took the time to get to know our organisations and unique challenges. The processes are applicable to any organisations, and Kim proved that.
Gave me structure/steps to follow. Really knowledgeable presenter – Kim was awesome. I enjoyed working with others in my line of work. Kim, you’re amazing – I’m in awe!
The best part was the group work and opportunity to apply learned knowledge straightaway.
Great theory that can easily be applied practically. Awesome two days!
Information overload, well-delivered. All relevant information. Kim, you’re great at your job! Thank you.
Excellent presenter. I liked the fact that we got the basics prior to the event, so we could cover a lot more. The workshopping section was very useful – it was a chance to see it in practice.
Your presentation skills, passion, and knowledge are fantastic.
Perfect, step-by-step guide to help refocus and implement. Thanks so much. It was a fun and engaging session and left me inspired and motivated to get started!
Your approach is great. You held my attention the entire time. All the knowledge in this has been priceless.
The real life case examples were really helpful and provided a lot of context.
Reinforcing the journey I’m undertaking with our sponsorship portfolio is the right thing (to realign) and gave me further tools to sell in my future vision.
Enjoyed the activities/exercises – love all the ideas! As a seeker [attending the sponsor workshop], it was really good to hear the difficulties the sponsors in the room are experiencing.
Enjoyed learning the process of creating leveraging ideas from a sponsor’s perspective, and the overall steps to go through before the proposal stage.
I have had the book for a while, however hearing, seeing, and experiencing this in person is the cream on the cake. My manager attended this conference last year. I can see so much of what we are learning here already implemented in the structure of our department.
The workshop was fun. Thank you so much. It will be good to refresh our sponsorships with this framework.
The best workshop I’ve ever attended, because it’s so practical and has the take-homes to be able to implement the knowledge.
Covered all aspects and Kim allowed time to answer individual questions. Really went beyond expectations and offered a lot of value.
Great ideas that have opened up many doors!
The best aspects were Kim’s enduring energy throughout the day, the clear and logical delivery with participant interaction, portfolio review, and working through the examples as a group. Thanks, Kim. A great day for me.
Kim you are completely inspirational, honest, down to earth, and real.
Great workshop that demystified sponsorship!
This course has been really enlightening and helped me to approach sponsorship with a stronger strategic focus. Kim’s experience and case studies are current and fresh, which reinforced the messages. As a newbie to sponsorship, I’m more confident that I will present a sophisticated proposal to potential sponsors and better leverage my own sponsorship opportunities. I’d highly recommend this course to others working on sponsorship deals.
Loved the brainstorming process – breaking down the steps. And pricing – we are way underselling!
The best part was changing our mindset to sponsorship from fundraising. But more importantly, giving us a clear process/concept to follow to be successful. It couldn’t have come at a better time for us!
Kim is a fantastic, enthusiastic presenter.
Loved the straighforward approach and sharing of experience and stories around what works and what doesn’t work! Enjoyed understanding how to leverage existing sponsorships, how to evaluate and understand sponsorship requests, and how to take care of our fans!
This workshop has a thorough, process-driven structure which provides real tools and examples that I can implement in my job. This new way of thinking/approach to sponsorships will greatly enhance my events.
Clear and concise content, supported by anecdotal examples. Amazing presenter – great energy. Useful to attend with other people from our organisation. Can look at shared brainstorming and cross-organisational plans.
Most comprehensive workshop I have ever been on. You’re awesome. I would like to bottle your enthusiasm! It’s contagious!
The delivery was very concise and to the point. Content covered all aspects needed to move forward with sponsorship. The interactive approach was just right.
Simplifying a complex landscape.
Great workshop. I’m glad that I have finally been able to attend and sample Power Sponsorship in person.

Some of the best aspects of the workshop was the customer experience focus, and Kim’s articulate description and storytelling.
Interactive, example-driven, great takeaways.
Looking forward to putting as much as possible into practice, and will be recommending your services to our partners.
Great to tap into obvious expertise. Case studies are an excellent accompaniment to the theory.
Thank you for the opportunity to attend this workshop. It has been brilliant. Lots of ‘light bulb’ moments, information, interesting and compelling.

I will be following these steps with the major sponsorship I’m about to prep. This has given me a real confidence in that my pitch will be relevant and successful.
Head is full of ideas… thank you!!!
I loved the step-by-step approach to coming up with ideas for sponsorship and leverage. Creating a background and profile for the target market was amazing.
So relevant for me and loved it. Focused and intense for learning, but not boring. Highly recommend.
