Course Name : Sponsor / SRO Development Workshop

Donnie delivered this session for us over a facilitated dinner. This unique approach coupled with his excellent skills at working with executive sponsors really helped key messages land. Donnie secured an external guest sponsor to support him with the session. His personal experience on major initiatives complemented Donnie\'s and our attendees input nicely. Since the session we have had excellent feedback from attendees and seen some demonstrable changes in behaviour. If you are thinking of running something similar with sponsors then I\'d fully recommend working with Team Animation.

Jon, many thanks for your kind words. It was a pleasure to work with the executives who were obviously keen to reflect on the their role as a sponsor and how this could be enhanced. The dinner was also wonderful!

Course Name : Sponsor / SRO Development Workshop

The experienced Donnie managed to structure the free-flowing agenda of our very enjoyable evening to land some key messages that will be critical to the successful delivery of our projects. His approach was accessible to our senior audience making it easy for them to take these messages away, and encourage them to further consider how they will become enablers in their role, along with their Project Teams. I would highly recommend anyone who thinks they need some support or coaching in the area of Sponsorship to give Donnie a call!

Louisa, many thanks for your kind review. The context of having this discussion over a dinner was ideal and also staying away from presenting materials and discussing concepts and case studies.
