I am a successful professional, I have received teaching from masters in their area of expertise. This training is the best investment I have ever made for the benefit of Unbridled Thoroughbred Foundation. As a nonprofit, sponsorship partnerships are key to advancing our mission and growing into a sustainable entity. The depth and breadth of this course has far exceeded my expectations. Kim provides a no nonsense practical application of how to articulate your vision into actionable steps to develop meaningful and relevant win-win-win partnerships for your fans, property, and Sponsors. With the right partners nonprofits can achieve the great work they set out to accomplish. What I love the most is Kim's straightforward approach and concision. Her generosity compresses the learning curve from an idea to activation. I have wholeheartedly embraced and utilized Kim's tactics to make magic for The Horses Of Unbridled. If I can do it, you can too!

'Getting to Yes' provided a solid foundational understanding of the new sponsorship space. Clearly going through the creative brainstorming process to extract various assets and build internal buy-in, to providing a complete and concise proposal, and minimising the errors, Kim kept it succinct yet expansive to create a wide ranging foundational understanding. It will allow the further exploration of the sponsorship space with certainty.

I was introduced to Power Sponsorship over seven years ago. This course has been a great update to my initial introduction. I really enjoyed the flow and pace of the material that was presented. I felt it was a value based training. I will be telling many others about this training. The downloads have been really useful and I've taken many notes to "jog" my memory because she includes verbal gems throughout the videos.

Thanks Kim for the opportunity to soak up this course content over a few weeks, whilst at the same time working through real-life sponsorship scenarios. I watched each chapter a couple of times as I was working to apply my learnings and I found this to be extremely valuable. I have also completed the Getting to Yes live training with you; I loved it and got a different kind of energy from the live course due to the ability to bounce ideas off of others in the room. With the online course I was able to case study my own events rather than hypothetically brainstorm someone else's event but there is value in both versions! The online training was a great way for me to test my knowledge and recall from the live training and I was really pleased with my level of understanding and ability to apply concepts to my current client portfolio. That's thanks to your awesome teaching skills! I have been a long-time fan of your work, I own one of your books with the piggy-bank on the front!! I appreciate the confidence with which you approach sponsorship, your directness and sense-of-humour resonate with me and I always come away from reading your books, live courses, or online training buzzing and excited to crack into sponsorship seeking! I'm keen to do more online training so please keep me posted of new training options as they become available. Thanks a mil... Karen

This training course in Sponsorship is one of the best I have experienced. The structure of the training is thoughtfully executed from start to finish, including the importance of developing a clear marketing strategy for the business before being able to start reaching out to Sponsors. Understanding how to develop leverage ideas and ways to measure sponsorships is truly invaluable. I cannot recommend this course enough.
