I spent over a decade making all of the common mistakes before I discovered a systematic process to engage sponsors.

It took a lot of trial and error but after testing these concepts with tens of millions of dollars in sponsorship sales and am excited to share them with you.

I have now worked with thousands of sponsorship seekers, written well over 200,000 words on the topic and spoken at conferences all over the world, sharing the concepts identified in The Sponsorship Blueprint.

Chris is the President and CEO of The Sponsorship Collective and a self-confessed sponsorship geek.
