In addition to the development of innovative approaches to fund raising and sponsorship Tony also secures the funds himself – utilising:
- his understanding of the imperatives that underpin an organisation’s preparedness to support a particular initiative;
- tailored sponsorship programs that suit the goals and priorities of individual potential sponsor organisations;
- payment scheduling to align with the organisational needs of organisations;
- his extensive business and government networks.
Throughout his career Tony has worked in the public, private and not for profit sectors and has developed an in-depth understanding of the culture and operating conditions of each. As a senior executive in business and government he has been responsible for the decision to sponsor organisations - this experience is vital in developing fundraising and sponsorship strategies.
Most of Tony’s sponsorship success comes from a personalised approach – meeting with senior executives of the target organisation, gaining an understanding of their priorities and developing a specific proposal that suit the organisations priorities, positioning and budget.
