Information from my email:

Quest Sponsorship

  • I would love to see Huron/Studer as a partner at our Quest for Excellence Conference. This would be a great way to put your brand in front of all the conference attendees. Specifically, we offer Enhanced Exhibitor pages with live chat and discussion forums where you would be able to tell your company story and converse with potential customers. Your services could absolutely help people interested in performance excellence and quality.

  • If you would like to view sponsorship options, click here and scroll to the bottom. Of course, I can create a custom package for you as well if you like. You will just need to give me a range of where you want to be and I can take it from there. A potential option for sponsorship is below.

  • Intermediate Pre-Conference Criteria Workshop Sponsor - $15,000.00

    • Presented by: JoAnn Sternke, Senior Director and Coach, Studer Education and member, Baldrige Judges Panel

    • Designed for those who have begun to use the Criteria or self-assessment tools and are ready to learn more – not for experienced Criteria users

    • Participants will learn the benefits of conducting a self-assessment using the Organizational Profile, an approach for managing an initial organizational self-assessment, and the value of using the Criteria to more fully articulate an organization’s attributes, challenges, and needs in this interactive session.

Training and Certification Courses

You may review all of our training & certification courses on our website or in a PDF by clicking here. I have the ability to white label this platform as well. For example, it could be in your brand and you could offer these to your clients, employees, etc. Click here for an example.


Strategic Partnership

Thinking about additional ways to support your process I could envision the following:

  • We create a custom branded community inside the Institute for Performance Excellence in your brand.

  • Your organization would control access to it.

  • You could provide access to your customers as a common ground where they could go to stay connected, share best practices, and be connected with Baldrige as an international leader in performance excellence, leadership and management. It also has an events listing and file library for your community. This is a great way to increase engagement and enhance value add for your organization. Depending on the number of clients we could definitely find the right price point that fits your business model.

  • Also, I would be interested in getting your organization listed on our Training and Resources tab. This would help to establish some sort of channel partnership. We typically work with our channel partners on some sort of revenue share capacity as we look to drive business to them when appropriate to do so.


Debbie, lots to take in here. Quite honestly, as I learn more about specific needs/goals that you have I can probably come up with more. Love to chat with you and your team soon about everything we have to offer. As I mentioned on our call, here is the link to my calendar so you can choose a time that fits best in your schedule.
