“This course is truly the first worthwhile and complete set of instructions that I have been taught on how to develop successful sponsorships. While my events are smaller than the events presented in the course, I know that I'm now using the same tools that the "big dogs" are using, and I'll have a much better and more effective end product. This course was invaluable!”
