Learn the skills and essential tools for modern sponsorship sales and delivery
The European Sponsorship Association (ESA) is proud to present a new sales learning qualification, the ESA Sales Certificate, now available to all professionals who want to enhance their sales techniques and develop the skills necessary to build thriving commercial relationships with the corporate sector. The ESA Sales Certificate is an excellent opportunity that brings our experiences gained from running and delivering our highly successful ESA Diploma and ESA Arts Sponsorship Certificate courses, and applies it to sponsorship sales.
The ESA Sales Certificate is a practical, highly-interactive course that has been developed to support the needs of those involved in sales and sponsorship. A modular framework, delivered over four half day morning sessions in London, takes attendees on a structured journey that enables them to develop the key skills required to practise effective sponsorship sales.
The course culminates in a formal written and practical assessment, with the certificate accrediting practitioners that demonstrate best-practice sales techniques; it serves as an industry benchmark of proficiency in sponsorship and partnership development and delivery.
