Sponsorship coaching

This new initiative will assist organisations to audit existing sponsorships and products so they can be aligned with sponsor partnership objectives. It will also help organisations understand the market value of an existing sponsorship, eg naming rights and identify opportunities to evolve existing, or develop new, products for sponsors.

Specialist provider The Gemba Group will provide coaching on one or more of the following modules via an application process:

  1. Product Audit: an audit of existing products via a face-to-face workshop.
  2. Sponsorship Valuations: using Gemba’s repository of New Zealand sponsorship agreements you will receive a market valuation of the sponsor partnership.
  3. Partner Targeting Principles: will help you identify the industries most aligned with your organisation and audience base. You will be coached on how to identify potential partners, eg in banking, automotive or insurance, based on consumer insights, and how to effectively target potential partners.
