Value to Sponsor

  • Event Signage
  • Facebook (+500 Friends)
  • LinkedIn (+500 Connections)
  • Blog Posts
Other Value:

➡️ I typically receive 2-5 speaking requests per month for various events. Unfortunately, most of these requests are for unpaid events, and I am no longer able to accommodate all of them due to balancing events that are also paid. While my social media platform has yet to reach desired numbers (currently around 2,500 and growing), I have experience presenting to groups of 50-500 people both virtually and in-person, from various locations.

I have found that each presentation I give leads to additional offers to speak elsewhere. I am confident in my ability to provide value through my presentations, but I understand that not everyone I serve can afford it.

Ultimately, the key to bringing value to you as a sponsor is to understand your goals and needs, and to work collaboratively with you to develop a customized approach that meets your specific objectives. I am willing and able to work closely with you so that we can build a strong and mutually beneficial relationship that delivers value to all parties.
