Why Be a Directions Conference Sponsor?

Breakout Session Sponsor – $1,000

One of the highlights of Directions is the Breakout Session series held in the morning at each year’s conference. There are typically 6-8 separate session, each dealing with contemporary topics that are designed to inform, inspire, and equip our students with the tools they need to be better employees. Past topics have included Personal Branding; Networking for Success; IT In a Changing World; Entrepreneurship; as well as interviews and panels featuring business and community leaders and innovators.

These sessions are very popular and provide sponsors with excellent exposure, brand recognition and an opportunity to share their mission and values to students who are eager to build their knowledge. Sponsorship includes in-room and digital display signage; opportunity to distribute corporate literature; introduction of the session by a corporate spokesperson; and prominent mention in Directions conference literature, website and social media postings.
