Is it time for some 1:1 help?

I know you are doing a great job and you are giving everything you have to your organisation, but sometimes you can really use some fresh ideas.  Someone else’s perspective to help make sure you’re heading in the right direction.

That’s what I do.  Guide you, support you, empower you.

It’s all about fast tracking your success at finding great partners, helping you meet your targets and becoming a better corporate fundraiser.

Some common scenarios that people share on their coaching journey are:

  • I feel hampered or unsupported by my CEO or Board in my fundraising efforts.
  • I feel anxious about picking up the phone to a Sponsorship Manager and asking them to sponsor us.
  • I never seem to have any luck getting sponsors onboard and don’t know what I’m doing wrong!
  • I don’t know how to package and put a price on what my organisation has to offer a potential sponsor.
  • Some companies ask me for proof of a return on their investment, how I am supposed to respond to that?
  • I’m stressed! I am in charge of several roles within my organisation, as well as trying to find corporate partners for upcoming events and programs!
  • I have no idea what sponsors are looking for and what makes a good ‘fit’.
  • I know I need to create a proposal, but I haven’t got the time or faintest idea how to start and what to include.
  • I know that I should negotiate with sponsors, but when it comes time to speak with them, I’m scared they will walk away if they don’t get what they want and so I cave in and give them too much for too little.
  • My organisation already has some sponsors that are hard to manage and I’d like help pulling them into line to make it work for both of us.

If you can relate to any of the scenarios above, then you are definitely in the right place and I can help you.

Abby Clemence

I loved my time employed in the non-profit sector as a corporate fundraiser, before founding Infinity Sponsorship so that I could use my skills to  work alongside more organisations who needed help.  I’m a qualified adult educator, with a Certificate IV in Workplace Training and Assessment and I’ve been coaching and facilitating workshops for more than 20 years.  My very first consultancy business focussed on teaching corporate sales teams to deliver exceptional customer service, develop rapport quickly and easily with customers over the phone and build strong cohesive teams through great communication.

More recently, over the last 10 years I have run hundreds of webinars, workshops, master classes, keynote presentations and coaching sessions that support fundraisers to become the best at their craft.

Focussing on the skills needed to be a great fundraiser is vital, but I’ve also come to know that often it is our own limiting beliefs that get in our way and prevent us reaching the heights we set for ourselves.

When I work with you, the difference is my singular focus on your success.  I will make sure you take action, change what’s not working and keep you accountable, to ensure you get where you need to be at the time you need it.

I know the clock is ticking for you – your CEO and Board wants sponsorship income now.

Together, we will co-create a roadmap specifically for you, that closes the gap on where you are and where you want to be. Then, we ACCELERATE that process by giving you access to all the experience I’ve gained (as well as targeted online courses and resources I’ve created) to make sure that your success is being fast tracked.

I look forward to supporting you on your journey.
