Charmaine Hammond has been in the business of transforming lives and raising dreams for more than 25 years. This former Correctional Officer (yup! She worked in jails) and Corporate Dispute Resolution Expert now travels the world teaching the principles of collaboration, partnership and sponsorship. She is an expert in helping entrepreneurs discover the untapped revenue source that most have not thought of... yet! A serial entrepreneur, she has owned her company Hammond International Inc for 23 years, and has owned several other businesses, one located in the US. As a bestselling author (of 5 books & featured in 6 others), and CSP™ Certified Speaking Professional she has had tremendous success in finding corporate sponsors to fund her speaking and book projects/events/tours including her printing, graphic design, venues, travel, media, technology, hotels, even her pet food and dog poop bags! She has developed sponsorship relationships with more than 40 sponsors and 60 business partners. Her recent speaking and book tour, Million Acts of Kindness, involved a 14,000 KM tour in a 32 foot sponsored motor home, hotels sponsored for the team, and more than 40 businesses and retail chains raising funds in their stores/businesses to support this movement… A Million Acts of Kindness. She has helped her clients secure cash sponsorship, get their clothes, travel, printing, event needs and more sponsored through the power of relationships and collaboration. Today Charmaine will teach you how to find corporate sponsors to fuel your business and raise your dream!

The Hidden Revenue Stream That Most Entrepreneurs Haven't Even Thought Of (How sponsorship, collaboration & social media can take your vision from big idea to global brand)
This workshop helps entrepreneurs learn how collaboration and sponsorship can help their business and is an untapped revenue source. I teach people how to get their business needs, even their clothing, travel and more covered through collaboration and sponsorship. The workshop helps entrepreneurs learn their value to sponsors (why a business or brand would say yes), how sponsorship and collaboration fits with their revenue model, and, some action steps to take to get started immediately. This session will include: 1) Live polls through Kiwilive (a platform that is sponsored for me...) 2) 1-2 hot seats where an attendee has their sponsorship project masterminded by the group. The hot seat is recorded for them so they have it to step into action when they leave. 3) Group discussion and questions.
