Seminar Series

Jeff Blumenfeld, FN’89

Get Sponsored

On June 14, 2016, Jeff Blumenfeld, FN’89, FRGS, the Club’s former Director of Communications, and editor and publisher of the monthly ‘Expedition News,' will discuss how to secure corporate sponsorship for your next project. Jeff has extensive experience in this pursuit. He’s worked closely with companies including 3M, Duofold, Du Pont, Lands’ End, Michelin, and W.L. Gore, among others.

He is author of Get Sponsored: A Funding Guide for Explorers, Adventurers and Would Be World Travelers (Skyhorse Publishing), which covers some of the world’s most historic expeditions, focusing on how explorers can gain funding for their projects. During a 35+ year career in adventure marketing, he has helped raise corporate support and exposure for several explorers including Lonnie Dupre, Ned Gillette, Paul Schurke, Will Steger, and Norman Vaughan. Members will learn what attracts corporate decision-makers to expedition sponsorship, the importance of product integration, and how to provide value through social media, photos, video, testimonials, and even trade show appearances.

Exploration Seminars Program

As in the past, the Club’s more experienced and accomplished Members will address practical field needs and disciplines directly relevant to exploration. The common goal of the series is to contribute and expand field knowledge in a ‘show me how to’ format, with several sessions providing a ‘hands on’ approach.

Please note the Exploration Seminars are for Members only, without charge, but reservations are required due to limited seating in the Board Room. Members wishing to attend should email the Club Receptionist at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address), to secure space.
