At Criterion Conferences we’re passionate about connecting people of influence to solutions through our events. We conduct independent research to develop conferences and workshops addressing key issues across a variety of industries within Australia. Not only are we passionate about what we do, but also the people that shape our organisation. Upheld by our strong values, our organisation is dynamic and we have a team of employees to match. We play hard so we can work hard, and take pride in every aspect of our work.
At Criterion, we have a team of Sponsorship Managers who are all about creating high-level engagement between senior decision-makers and solution providers. Sponsorship Managers are responsible for identifying and securing sponsorship with providers and suppliers of relevant solutions and services for our events. We generally focus on the government, health, education, financial services, aged care, not-for-profit sectors. Sponsorship managers build and maintain relationships with c-level executives, high-level decision makers, and sales and marketing experts. These relationships are fostered through consultative and solution-based selling, and also working collaboratively with other departments (conference producers, marketing, etc) to produce great results.
