Inside Sponsorship – Paralympics New Zealand – Ian Sargeant – Ep 54 – Feb 18

February 28th, 2018 Posted by

How many of you, who rely so heavily on traditional inventory, things such as signage, uniform branding, home game activations, tickets, and hospitality, would struggle if you could no longer offer them to your sponsors?

 

What about if you are a rights holder who enjoys long and regular periods of sustained awareness and engagement, like an annual twenty plus week season? Would your job be tougher if you couldn’t rely on that high-profile regularity?

 

How would you even approach your job without those things?

 

While they are interesting hypothetical questions for most of you, they are the reality for Ian Sargeant, Commercial Manager at Paralympics New Zealand. In this episode, you’ll learn about how Ian and the organisation deliver a highly successful commercial program, without the plethora of traditional benefits most rights holders boast, as we go inside sponsorship at Paralympics New Zealand.

You can learn more about Paralympics New Zealand, connect with Ian on LinkedIn, or email him directly on isargeant at paralympics.org.nz.

You want more? Lucky that our MD, Mark Thompson, also joins us to discuss a very interesting topic, and not one that is talked about a lot, that being the sponsorship landscape in terms of understanding third-party influencers who could be vital to success.

 

Enjoy.

The Sponsorship Landscape – Understanding 3rd party Influencers is Vital to Success

February 15th, 2018 Posted by

From the outside, the sponsorship landscape looks pretty simple: There are rights holders (those looking for sponsors) and there are brands (those looking to sponsor). Rights holders reach out to brands, they meet, they pitch, and deals are negotiated and eventually done. In reality, the landscape and the process is entirely different and more involved.

For those looking to succeed in this space, understanding 3rd parties, who exert influence on the relationships, and are vital to their success, could be the difference in you being great at your job or not surviving in this  cut-throat industry. (more…)

Recipe – 5 Key Ingredients for Fantastic Hospitality

January 31st, 2018 Posted by

Corporate hospitality, no matter which side of the coin you sit on (rights holder or brand), can be a fantastic opportunity to generate business, network, learn from like-minded individuals or organisations, and generally have an enjoyable time at an event.

How Rights Holders are being forced to adjust sponsorship because of changing attention spans

September 5th, 2017 Posted by

As I sat down to write this blog, I got completely side-tracked by a man outside my office window who was hosing a piece of dirt. My interest was drawn elsewhere and I forgot what I was doing.

Oh, that’s right!

I was about to write about trend 3 in the Nielsen Sports’ Commercial Trends in Sport 2017 – Changing Attention Spans Prompting Rights Holders to Rethink.
