Insights from 2018 Taster workshop

Your workshop exceeded my expectations and was great value for money. I learned that I should not give away my brand for free, that its ok to say no, that I need to do my research and be prepared to succeed in corporate partnerships

Joel PilgrimWaves of Wellness Foundation

The workshop was practical as well as inspiring. A key insight for me was understanding the 4 purses and how that dictates the needs of the corporate prospect. That one gem has changed the way I evaluate prospects forever

Inspiration and Guidance

If you’re new to corporate partnerships or not yet ready to invest in HeartSmart®, we hope the following provide inspiration and guidance.


Oxfam had some strong sponsorships & partnerships for Oxfam Trailwalker, built on staff engagement as primary motivators. But we've never quite nailed a pure consumer marketing based sponsorship. Having been through Cavill + Co's HeartSmart® process and applying it in the real world, I can see why. We now have a much clearer value proposition for potential partners & sponsors, thanks to Hailey's model.

Joe MangerCorporate Partnerships Manager, Oxfam

Hailey Cavill combines a sophisticated knowledge of the corporate sector with a passionate understanding of the not-for-profit sector. Rarely do you find an experienced professional who is willing share such valuable knowledge. And her HeartSmart® Toolkit has provided The Fred Hollows Foundation with the tools to create strong and sustainable corporate partnerships. We strongly recommend the HeartSmart® program. Thank you, Hailey!

Penny TribeSenior Executive - Partnerships, The Fred Hollows Foundation

All you need to know is that Hailey is the real deal. She's spent years creating, evolving and sharing her HeartSmart® formula which has produced stunning results for not for profits of all shapes and sizes, including the organisations I have worked for. She shares her knowledge so generously, with humour and humility.

Shannon AndersonFormer General Manager, Marketing & Fundraising of Guide Dogs Victoria and General Manager Marketing & Fundraising of Lifeline Australia

When I did my first presentation using your HeartSmart® process to a major corporate they said my presentation blew them away! HeartSmart® provides a logical process that is empowering and definitely gets results!

Melissa SimpsonEvents + Marketing Manager, HeartKids Queensland

Doing the HeartSmart® brand valuation was a bed-rock process for us - we realised just how valuable our brand is. Since doing HeartSmart® we've signed up 2 major players in Woolworths and PetStock which have transformed our ability to do our jobs - that is, to get rescue animals into loving homes.

As a tiny organisation we don't have time to waste. Your investment in HeartSmart® will not only save you time but even better, it'll get you results.

John BishopFounder & Joint CEO, PetRescue

Within a month of graduating from HeartSmart® I secured two sponsors for our major awareness raising campaign ‘Lace Up against Social Violence’. $140k cash and $500,000 of in-kind (creative & digital advice, extensive marketing resources, channels and ad placement). 2017 was the biggest and best campaign ever with unprecedented activation and reach through football clubs and we reached millions of Australians with our message. This was my first time pitching to corporates for sponsorship and I nailed it with the help of HeartSmart®
