      The Secret of Sponsorship Workshop

      Would you like to secure business sponsorship, but are unsure where to start? Do you wonder why other organisations can attract big sponsors when you can’t? Would you like to change your sponsorship relationships so that they offer real value to your organisation? The Secret of Sponsorship is a one day workshop for schools, sports clubs, event organisers and non-profit organisations and explores the idea of developing business sponsorship for your organisation. In this workshop you will discover: - The difference between donations and sponsorship. Are you approaching sponsorship in the right way? - Where to find potential sponsors in your own community. Which businesses would make a great fit and how do you approach them? - What businesses are looking for in a sponsorship relationship. Is it really logos and thank you speeches or have you been missing the mark? - The true value of what you have to offer. How do you provide genuine sponsor benefits without ‘selling your soul’? - How a sponsor can actually add value to your programme or service. It’s not all about money or product. - The ins and outs of sponsorship proposals and contracts. How do you manage the process for the best chance of success? - The importance of developing a genuine relationship with existing sponsors and how you can do it well. This one day workshop will give you the tools and strategies you need to develop an effective sponsorship plan, and will leave you feeling re-energised in the process. Be prepared to re-think how you do sponsorship in your organisation.

      Rotorua Roaring Knights Chess Club

      The Rotorua Roaring Knights CC is a new chess club in Rotorua. Chess enthusiasts from all ages and levels are welcome to join. Chess is a great way for you to train your memory and reasoning skills, use your imagination and so much more: chess teaches you how to make decisions and how sometimes you have to give up something good to obtain something better. Good chess players think what the opponent's next move will be and thus learn to look at a situation from another's point of view. Chess also teaches you that good outcomes are the result of the combined effort of all the pieces on the board. One strong piece usually is insufficient to make a difference. The skill to coordinate all the pieces, letting them work together is one of the keys to improve in chess. Do you like playing chess? Come along with some friends and play against others from different schools. Do you want to learn how to play chess? Every week, we organise a chess lesson. Also absolute beginners are welcome and we'll be happy to explain you the very basics. Do you want to improve your skills? Advanced lessons are given as well. Biscuits are available as well. Please bring a 5 $ contribution. Looking forward to seeing you all there. Please don't hesitate to contact Laurens Goormachtigh at Goormachtigh.Laurens@gmail.com or 021 177 4887 should you have any further questions.
