• We wrote the sponsorship strategy for the Department of Health’s £100,000,000 smoking cessation campaign and were retained to undertake the resultant highly successful sales work. BDS had previously developed the Department of Health’s Draft Sponsorship Guidelines. We were re-employed by the Department of Health to communicate the E111 key messages through partnerships with the private sector, and significantly achieved over their targets.
  • We were employed by Edinburgh Council to obtain sponsorship sales for their “Christmas Lights” and raised significant sponsorship from British Energy. Following the success of sourcing the “Christmas Lights” sponsorship BDS were re-employed by Edinburgh Council to undertake sponsorship sales for their “Capital Christmas” festival.
  • We are increasingly being asked by local authorities to undertake sponsorship studies/ audits in order to identify the best potential areas to pursue in order to obtain significant sponsorship investment. A recent example of work undertaken includes Aylesbury Vale District Council in which BDS identified the Roald Dahl Festival as having major potential and as a consequence have advised AVDC on how to adjust the festival in order to gain significantly greater sponsorship income.
