Join Be Social Change for Building Partnerships with Impact with Emily Chong on Monday, December 5th where you’ll learn how to build partnerships with corporations that are genuine, meaningful, rewarding and creative – ones that lead to real impact for your business and the world.
An effective partnership is critical in building momentum for your nonprofit or social enterprise. The right partnerships can make the world of a difference. It could mean avoiding the laborious task of door-to-door fundraising, having the resources to develop the programs you want, and being able to hire the staff you need. Partnerships create new opportunities you would have never dreamed of. But similar to dating, you need to find the right corporate partner that is the perfect match for your organization.
In this class we will dive deeper into the art and practice of building relationships with corporations that lead to monetary partnerships. We will cover how to build and nurture relationships with decision makers, the process of designing a tailored partnership, tactics for negotiation and how to close deals.
