This Podcast emphasises sponsorship but in the context of public relations. As a student you are much more likely to be aware of sponsorship as a communications tool than PR. You are encouraged to be more aware of sponsorship and critically the reasons for a company sponsoring their chosen event/TV programme etc. What are the links; where is the mutual benefit; what criticisms do they have? Think for example if there is a relationship between the organisations in the partnership? Mention is made of TESCO and 'Race for Life' . You might want to identify a company and write a short briefing note to the directors setting out when they should sponsor a particular event/TV programme etc.
