A partnership with a difference

LOOK FOR MORE THAN AN ACCEPTABLE ROI

You should be aiming higher than just a good return on investment.

Sponsorship deals can run the gamut from a couple of posts on Instagram in exchange for free product, to one off donations to causes that seem worthwhile, to negotiating million dollar deals with the agents of celebrity athletes. These deals can leave both parties wondering if they got their money’s worth. But what if we looked for a better way – a partnership that not only delivers exceptional value, but is more of a friendship, or a long-term relationship, than an impersonal business deal.

Think outside the box.

I know that great ROI is a minimum requirement for a sponsorship agreement. But elite performers don’t settle for the minimum. I’ve thought outside the box to come up with some ways that you can get even more outstanding value for your investment. How about a flying trapeze lesson for your next team building day? Or an inspirational keynote speech at your company’s next offsite? What would it mean to your employees or customers to have guest blog posts written by an elite athlete? And of course you can have your logo on my bikini bottoms – there may not be much space but plenty of people will be looking!

CURRENT SPONSORS

Breathe Bikinis

‘Put a little style in your play’

Breathe Bikinis is an American based company that sells world-wide. Their bikinis are designed by athletes for athletes – specialising in the sports of beach volleyball, stand up paddle boarding and surfing. They are incredibly comfortable to play in (they won’t move when you are diving for balls!) and have unique prints and colours every season. As women beach volleyball players we always get asked about playing in bikinis – but I love how these bikinis fit and feel so much that I train in them every day too.

RockTape

RockTape is a premium brand of kinesiology tape. First used by acupuncturists and chiropractors in Japan, today kinesiology tape is used by a wide variety of health professionals throughout the world to treat injuries and pain. Unlike traditional athletic tape that binds and doesn’t stretch, ROCKTAPE is engineered to mimic the human skin. This stretchiness is the secret behind ROCKTAPE. This is what gives ROCKTAPE its performance advantage over other tapes. Rainbow is my favourite colour for sure, although you’ll often see me sporting a colour to match my bikini.

Bollé Eyewear

Bolle is the premium Australian sunglasses brand. They outfit elite athletes across a range of summer and snow sports. Their latest range includes lenses that adjust to light levels – perfect for days with intermittent clouds. I’ve worn Bollé since I first stepped on the beach volleyball court back in 2011. Their products are outstanding.

True Protein

True Protein is an Australian based company that creates incredibly high quality protein powders and other sports supplements to help with training, recovery and performance. There are no additives, fillers, artificial flavours or sweeteners. Plus all the ingredients are sourced organically from New Zealand and around the world. I’m addicted to their chocolate falvoured whey protein isolate – put it in smoothie with avocado, almond butter, banana and coconut and it literally tastes like a chocolate thickshake!

WHAT IS YOUR COMPANY’S STORY?

Aiming to become more elite?

Your company is already a high performer, and you are ready to step up and become truly elite. Partner with Christie on your journey and access all her teachings gleaned from years as a professional athlete and consultant to business leaders.

Going through change?

While change is often necessary, it is rarely greeted with comfort from your employees. As someone who has changed sports three times and been successful on the world stage every time, Christie is an expert in embracing change and maximising success.

Seeking to share a message?

Do you have a message or a brand that aligns with what I do? Sometimes you just need to get the word out. Let’s share platforms, messages, audiences and media coverage.

Creating products to support excellence?

If you are a gold medallist in your industry, partnering with a gold-medallist in sport makes sense. Excellence comes in many forms but the truly elite recognise and gravitate towards one another. Let’s help propel each other to greater heights.

Building an elite team?

Incorporating an elite athlete into your team is an incredible way to level-up. I bring not only my knowledge and skills on how to become elite, but an understanding of how to forge a team that will stand up tests like the pressure of world championship competition. All this in a terminology that makes sense to business – I’m experienced at consulting with business leaders.

Representing a summer lifestyle?

There is no sport more iconic of summer and an active lifestyle than beach volleyball. It is a quintessential representation of all the good memories that come from days spent in the sunshine, among the company of friends, and moving your body. Link your company to the sport that everybody loves.

“She’s AMAZING!”
