“What does my sponsor actually want to see in my sponsorship package/proposal?”
In our session together, we will walk through EXACTLY what to include in your sponsorship proposal/package, how to write packages/proposals that your sponsor prospects will actually read, and how to use data to sell more sponsorship. You’ll walk away with some questions you can begin to ask in your organization and some takeaways that will leave you set up to be more successful in your sponsorship program.
The training will take place at
815 St Laurent Blvd, Ottawa ON, K1K 3A7
