Roberta Vigilance

Event Sponsorship Author & Consultant

Experienced in sales, Roberta merged her experience with her passion to help up and coming talents achieve their goals in an ethical way when she launched her event planning company, Vigilance Style & Grace, in 1999. Roberta had an event budget of not enough money to $0 to plan her company’s events. Roberta first learned about event sponsorship when she started to seek funding to cover the cost of the events. The word – but not the process – sponsor or sponsorship came into her awareness. Self-taught to secure sponsors and plan sponsored-events, Roberta learned what to say and do. Roberta closed and saved her company hundreds of thousands of US dollars through securing sponsors. Roberta teaches others how to secure sponsors through teaching the fundamentals of event sponsorship and is the author of How To Secure Sponsors Successfully.

..Hi Roberta, I enjoyed your presentation and the discussion where a young poet, musicians, dancer, and program manager and policewoman came out with newfound enthusiasm for finding sponsors and better organizers

It’s always great to have business related programs in lower income communities that lack this type of education and we look forward to having more workshops like that here again

The workshop was useful.  You covered everything on the agenda.  It’s very helpful to have a resume with specific work experience to forward to team members and get them to commit their time.  thanks.
