Recommendations Matter

We are proud to support these great organisations in their work to assist them to be the best at what they do…

Gymnastics Victoria has been working with Kristen and Sponsorship Matters for almost a year and it has been a fantastic partnership. Kristen has assisted us with finding new partners and has been a huge help in developing ways to approach new businesses to create relationships. I look forward to continuing to work with her as our strategic outlook at Gymnastics Victoria becomes more commercial.  Gen Simmons, Marketing and Commercial Manager, Gymnastics Victoria


With the aim of providing additional value to the 40 plus exhibitors at the ACHPER Victoria Conference, Kristen was instrumental in providing us with some professional advice and offered to run an Exhibitor PD session for us during the conference. The session conducted together with Andrew Kent attracted a highly engaged audience who were keen to learn. Kristen’s approach was not only professional, but fun, enlightening, and most of all, realistic in covering content that was relevant to the audience who could relate to the issues she identified. Feedback from exhibitors has been positive, with some already implementing some of Kristen’s suggestions to generate effective post-conference follow up communications. Thank you again Kristen and Andrew, we look forward to working with you again in 2019. Kim Tamas, Marketing & Communications  ACHPER VicACHPER Victoria



By establishing, and then managing, the national partnership between Camp Australia and APPA, Kristen developed what has become a long-term and mutually beneficial association. Her professional approach and creative instinct have seen collaborative opportunities identified while her work ethic has ensured details are covered and goals met. Kristen’s support of APPA’s work meant that research projects into school autonomy and, more recently, the principal health and wellbeing symposium could be undertaken with confidence.

I have maintained a professional relationship through her role at VPA / AGPPA and now Sponsorship Matters. Kristen’s insights and advice are valued, and we have appreciated the networking opportunities she has provided us, particularly through her involvement in the APPA national conference. There is no doubt Kristen has deserved the trust and confidence given her over the almost 10 years of successful partnership. Michael Nuttall, Executive Officer / Australian Primary Principals Association APPA





Worldstrides recently worked with Kristen from Sponsorship Matters to evaluate and provide recommendations for our national sponsorship and partnership within the education sector.  Kristen’s knowledge and experience was invaluable.  She provided an enormous amount of insight and helped us restructure our investments to ensure we are getting the most out of our spend.  I would highly recommend Kristen and Sponsorship Matters to any business looking for quality partnerships. Bernadine Juretich, Director of Marketing / Worldstrides Australia



In my role with a national education focused association, as well as a state-based education focused association, I have been particularly fortunate to have been supported by such a consummate professional as Kristen. Kristen without fail has delivered exceptional results in her delivery of timely and accurate information as well as exceptional attention to detail. Partnerships and sponsorships are integral in the associations I work with and having the capacity to engage with Kristen, who in my opinion, has superior knowledge and skill in sourcing and activating meaningful partnerships, was without doubt pivotal in our success in these areas. Kristen has a keen eye for detail, has an exceptional work ethic and her character is without question of the highest standard. I have no hesitation in recommending Kristen Skinner. Karyn Prior, National Operations Manager / Australian Catholic Primary Principals Association (ACPPA) & South Australian Primary Principals Association  SACPPA


Thanks again for presenting such a highly valuable session with us yesterday. We thoroughly appreciated it. Your prior research and thoroughness in preparing for the meeting was certainly evident and has now provided us with a variety of fantastic opportunities to pursue. I think this will keep my schedule quite FULL!
Thanks again! Romney Nelson, National Partnership Manager / Teeth On Wheels


Footsteps engages Kristen Skinner from Sponsorship Matters for a component of its sales and marketing in Victoria. Her ability to create and culture relationships within the education sector over 15 years has been invaluable to our core business. We continue to engage her services based on results and it continues to be a winning formula. Stephen Evans, Director / Footsteps


Kristen is unsurpassed in her ability to bring people together for their mutual benefit. She has a wide network of contacts particularly in the education industry where she is well known by both education professionals and suppliers to the education industry. A joy to work with, Kristen is a people person who manages to make turning strangers into good friends look easy. She is an asset to any business, definitely someone you want on your team.
