What have people learned?

On Sponsorships:

“While my program is advanced and well equipped in securing and managing corporate sponsors, I thought Mazarine was an exceptional presenter and delivered real value to programs looking to advance or start a sponsor program.” -From Meals on Wheels National Conference 2013

“With the uncertainty around federal funding, it is imperative that we find unique ways to raise funds for our program. I found your trainings at the Meals on Wheels conference to be so helpful and already have a great idea around finding a sponsor for our meal program.” –Brynn Evans, Executive Director Meals On Wheels of Lamoille County

“Within four hours of soaking in all of your wonderful lessons and advice, I was able to empower someone to bring in a hefty item for one of the Silent Auctions, and secure a major score of my own.

Better yet, using what I had learned within the prior twelve hours, I was able to put together a variety of sponsorship packages for a recently-revealed connection in an industry you mentioned AND

“Wow!”, I not only secured a $1500 sponsorship for a specific need, but just found out that we received a 15,000 sponsorship, as well. I’d say that’s a darned good return on one webinar!  Thanks a million!”    -Judi DeSouter, Director of Advancement at Catholic Elementary Development Partners, New York, NY
