Building and Leading Teams for High Performance to Achieve Sponsorship Goals – Presented by Partnership Group – Sponsorship Specialists™ 

What are the two key components to any business? Revenue of course, but the other is people. Without strong talent to perform at high levels and support the vision of your organization, the revenue will not grow to the expectations of senior management or your board.

Join us on May 28th for this education and networking event and see how the sponsorship department at the Calgary Stampede doubled their annual revenue in under 10 years through innovative partnerships and by bringing on a high level of talent who came together with a common purpose.

Networking session to follow.
