Ghanaian playwright Uncle Ebo Whyte has advised people in the creative sector to not to always ask for money from prospective sponsors of their content and events.

Often must event organizers fail to meet the needs of companies because they forget to add some characteristics to their selves when going for sponsorship for their be it, events or programs. The motivational speaker advise all events coordinators to see it that they do not psych their minds on  money alone when seeking for sponsorship.

“Don’t always ask for money. Unfortunately, too many event organizers are always asking for money. There are brands and companies that will want to support your event but may not have money but they may have products. They may have services,” he noted.

“So for instance, a hotel may not be able to give you money but may be able to give you space. A hotel may be able to give you some refreshment or rooms. So don’t always look for money,” he further stated while delivering his keynote address at the recently held Showbiz Roundtable organized by Joy FM.
