    Talking event sponsorship with Grant from Adina Watches

    Adina was founded in 1971 by Australian watchmaker and current managing director Robert 'Bob' Menzies. A determined businessman, Bob had a dream to create a watch capable of withstanding the rigours of the Australian lifestyle. Today the business has grown from one dedicated man to a staff of twenty, including Bob's son Grant, building the craft of quality Australian watchmaking through the generations. Each year Adina produces over 40,000 artisan watches from its Brisbane factory, available in over 300 retail outlets across the country.

    In this podcast Grant talks with us about what sponsors expect and look for when sponsoring an event. He provides some great practical tips and insights that will support events of all sizes when they next commence their sponsorship campaign.
