When it comes to Corporate Partnerships, an organisation’s performance can be assessed in one of these five categories.
- Potential: Each organisation enters the world of corporate partnerships with potential, bright eyed and bushy tailed. Which direction you head in from here depends on whether you have a systematic approach.
- Frustration: Many organisations face frustration on many levels, when they realise that corporate partnerships aren’t as quick and predictable as other fundraising activities and some well-intentioned partnerships can be resource heavy and unprofitable.
- Failure: Without the required experience and skills specific to corporate partnerships, success is elusive and staff turnover is high.
- Progress: By approaching corporate partnerships the right way, you can begin to attract the right partners that are profitable and build deeper relationships between the two partners.
- Stellar: Stellar Partnerships go far beyond a big cheque or employee engagement. They involve multiple people from both sides working cohesively on a shared vision. Together they make an impact far beyond what they could have achieved separately. They are sustainable, profitable and set the benchmark for other organisations.

I felt that I already knew a fair bit about seeking and servicing partners… Well. I was wrong. At each session Linda and Sharon taught me something new – from a different way of looking at the value that we have to offer as an organisation, to identifying the who and why of potential partners, and how to go about positioning the value of thepartnership program internally. Most importantly they opened my eyes to the value of partnerships over and above funding; where a partnership can bring value far exceeding the bottom line. I recommend you jump on the next program. It will exceed your expectations”.
"I cannot recommend the Partnerships Acceleration System highly enough. Linda and Sharon share the benefit of their extensive expertise with class members and provide all the tools you need to develop and implement your own corporate partnerships program, designed specifically to suit the needs of your organisation. It’s a very thorough course that is broken down into easily digestible steps with each session building on the last. Along the way, you’ll hear and see practical real-life examples that help to bring the theory to life. I found myself really looking forward to these sessions. I have valued this course highly, and I think you will too. Thank you Linda and Sharon."

“I loved the Partnerships Acceleration System and highly recommend this program to all Corporate Partnership Leaders. Linda and Sharon have created a very easy to understand system which segments the steps needed to develop effective and sustainable corporate partnerships. The class size was small, which enabled great conversations amongst the group as well as sharing resources and ideas between us. As a Corporate Partnerships Leader who has worked in the corporate-community space for the past 12 years, I have found Linda and Sharon’s approach and system to be invaluable. The templates, steps, and materials have been thoughtfully designed and tested, and is designed to suit organisations and corporate partnership managers of all levels. If you are looking to develop corporate partnerships in your organisation or looking to take it to the next level, I highly recommend this course to all corporate partnership managers and leaders.”
