Want to learn about corporate partnerships - the opportunities & risks?

The Corporate Partnerships: 'Look & Learn Before you Leap' Online Summit is the first of its kind in Australia. At BePartnerReady.com® we deliver an online learning program teaching changemakers a 7-step process to engage & win high-value, transformative corporate partnerships & sponsorships.

BUT, what if you’re not yet ready to invest the time and money implementing a corporate partnerships strategy?

  • Perhaps your Board are uninformed or inexperienced in the corporate arena, or maybe they’re highly risk averse
  • Quite possibly, you or management are not aware of the critical organisational readiness factors that will set you up for success
  • Maybe you don’t know enough about what embedding a strategy would entail, or the benefits – and risks - of having a corporate partner or sponsor
  • It could be that you just don’t know enough to make a decision, or you don’t know what you don’t know!

Well, this Summit has been designed especially for you!

You could be a CEO or Board member, a manager of Fundraising, Communications or Business Development. No matter what your role, by the end of day two, you’ll have a clear understanding of what organisational readiness factors are essential, what the risks & opportunities are, and be empowered to make a decision about whether a corporate partnerships strategy is appropriate for your organisation.  You’ll be Inspired & Informed.

Your learnings and insights will come from people at the frontline – people who are already deeply engaged in corporate partnerships.  Bring your juicy questions to ensure you get clarity on all your niggly concerns and doubts. 

“Information is power only if you can take action with it.  Then, and only then, does it represent knowledge and consequently power”

The Details

Where: Online

When: 25 & 26 August, 9.45am – 5.00pm AEST both days, with plenty of breaks. We’ve set these times so that our friends in WA and Aotearoa New Zealand can join in the fun.

Who it’s for: Changemakers working within non-profit organisations & social enterprises. CEO’s, Board members, GM’s, managers of fundraising, communications, business development or corporate partnerships. Consultants are welcome (although heads up – you’ll be unable to use any of the material in your consultancy).

What it is: BePartnerReady.com® invites you to join the inaugural ‘Look & Learn Before You Leap’ Summit. It’s for anyone interested in exploring and understanding the idea of partnering with corporates & brands to bring more income, resources and innovative thinking into your organisation. We know how valuable your time is, so we’ve curated 16, lively and intentional sessions based on research with hundreds of changemakers like you. It’s a 2-day Summit, but you can also register for just Day 1 or just Day 2.

We have a stand-alone session on Day 1 that is exclusively for C-Suite called CEO Wisdom - CEO’s & GMs are able to register solely for this session. On Day 2, we have a stand-alone session that is exclusively for Board Members of non-profits or social enterprises. 

The speakers: We’ve gathered some of the freshest minds who serve the sector, along with brilliant people who are at the frontline of corporate partnerships, to share their insights & learnings. Our summit will be intentional, interactive, lively and practical – like all of our training. You won’t get bored or fatigued. You’ll be energised and excited!

Interaction: The Summit is set up as a meeting, so all guests will be live and present, and will be able to ask questions verbally as well as through the chat box.  We will be able to see you and hear you, so plan ahead to ensure you attend in the quietest and most appropriate environment.  And dress up (well at least from the waist up!)

All our sessions are LIVE, and none are recorded.  We want everyone – speakers, panellists, and guests – to feel safe sharing, and we believe that recording sessions prohibits this.

  • Tools & Templates will also be supplied, where appropriate, to ensure all learnings can be practically applied in your organisation
  • A workbook will be sent to guests 1 week prior for completion during the Summit
  • Additional resources – infographics, e-books & research reports will also be provided
Placeholder Image

For guests registering for both days, we’ll provide a free seat to the CEO session on Day 1, for you to gift to your CEO (they must register with the free seat code provided).

The CEO Wisdom panel session on Day 1 is $57 + GST and the Board Insight panel session on Day 2 is $57 + GST.

“Do yourself a favour and check out the awesome training from BePartnerReady.com®.  It helped me secure a partnership with Vodafone Foundation which lasted 6 years” 

~ Jamie Moore, former GM, Hello Sunday Morning

To be crystal clear, we will share our 7-step process for winning high-value transformative partnerships, briefly as part of the introduction. Aside from this you will NOT learn the intricate details of the process – the HOW to win partners, which includes large pieces of work on Asset valuation, Brand valuation, Prospecting & Pitching. This 7-step process requires an investment of over 100 hours across 7 months and is taught through our BePartnerReady.com® program. There are no shortcuts, there is no dumbed-down version, because it simply wouldn’t generate results FOR YOU in the real world. This Summit is for those that are not yet ready to make that investment, hence the title ‘Look & Learn Before you Leap’.  If you believe you’re ready to make the leap into implementing a strategy, start by calculating your Corporate Partnership Readiness Score – free, on our main website here

Mindset Matters!

10:30am - 11:30am AEST

It’s said that life isn’t about what happens to us, but what we make it mean, and how we respond to it (mostly outside of conscious awareness). There’s something working away, mostly on autopilot, day and night, that drives how we behave, the choices we make and ultimately how others see us.  The mind.

Change is inevitable - how we perceive change becomes a choice when we have the tools for a resilient Mindset.

Join us to learn how to master your mind and eliminate fear and scarcity thinking so that you are unshakeable!

Session Presenter

Stories That Change Brain Chemistry

11:45am - 12:45pm AEST

One of the greatest communication challenges in 2022 is how to cut through all the noise – the sheer volume of messaging as well as fake news. Our brains are neurologically wired to learn through stories, and told well, a story can compel audiences sit up, listen, remember and most importantly - act. Changemakers have brilliant stories but they’re mostly missing the mark.

Session Presenters

Simon is a master storyteller who combines cutting edge research from neuroscience & psychology with years of direct experience as a live storyteller and performer. He helps social entrepreneurs and changemakers supercharge their communications through neurologically targeted stories.
