Top New Zealand track cyclist Katie Schofield makes connection through Hamilton-based Social Media and PR specialists MediaPA’s network.
ONE OF New Zealand’s top female track cyclists, Katie Schofield, in partnership with Hamilton-based Social Media and PR specialists MediaPA, has made connections and gained sponsorships as part of MediaPA’s social giving concept.
Katie Schofield first became involved with MediaPA when they connected her with client and now a sponsor of Katie Purebread. Since then she has made a wealth of valuable connections with the help of MediaPA.
Katie attended her first Media PA networking event on behalf of Purebread, talking about the event Katie said, “it was an opportunity to be introduced to new people and share my story.”
At MediaPA’s networking event Katie was introduced to Simon and Lornae Lowe owners of Aspen Manor Motel. From this meeting Hamilton East Aspen Manor Motel became a sponsor of Katie. The sponsorship couldn’t have come at a better time as Katie was fundraising for her trip to America to collect points for the upcoming racing season.
“I am appreciative of the connections with Phillip Quay and MediaPA for introducing me Simon and Lornae and the processes of social giving,” says Katie.
It is not all about the financial support that Katie has received she is also grateful for the network she has become a part of: “I’ve been able share my experiences with a '2nd family' and to know I have the support of people back home (even when things are going as well as I'd like) is a great comfort,” says Katie.
The partnership between Katie and Aspen Motor Lodge Motel has been beneficial for them both. While Katie has been able to raise awareness of events in the Hamilton area and promote Aspens location as well as the rooms they have available Aspen have been sharing how Katie has been going and how they are associated with her.
MediaPA have a passion for social giving and believe it is a vital part of success for any business. To find out more about the concept of social giving and how it could work for you get in contact with MediaPA today.
