Who We Are

Over 20 years experience working in partnerships and event management specialising in film, the arts, community and festivals.

Paul Kennedy – Managing Director

After having worked for companies including Warner Bros Studios and Showtime in the U.S. and for one of Europe’s top advertising agencies McCann London Paul returned to Australia and since 2010 has been helping organisations across the country to secure sponsorship.

Paul has developed strong relationships and a second-to-none database of Australian sponsorship and marketing executives at major brands, advertising, media and sponsorship agencies.

He is focused on understanding how partnerships can best achieve each party’s objectives and is passionate about developing mutually beneficial relationships.

Kennedy & Partners’ team also includes sponsorship and negotiation professionals.

Paul worked tirelessly to foster a tremendous relationship which resulted in Optus serving as the festival’s longest-running corporate sponsor. Paul’s attention to detail, unwavering committment, knowledge of the industry and keeping a cool head under pressure made working with him an absolute pleasure.
