WHO is THIS workshop series FOR?
Individuals, brands, content platforms, communities, or events who:
Are ready to start doing partnerships and collaborations but don’t know where to begin
Just need a plan, some templates + tools, and someone to point them in the right direction
Have dipped a toe in the collaboration pool but want to be more intentional and strategic going forward
Aren’t interested in or ready for the fully-customized collaboration strategy/business coaching/entrepreneur therapy that comes from working with Baily 1:1 across 10 weeks
what's the plan?
Any of my past clients can tell you that I’m not a fan of theory-based teaching, I’d much rather we work on actual partner identification, outreach, ideation, execution, and evaluation. This workshop series will be part-collaboration concepts/activities and part-real world implementation. Attendance will be capped at 10 people, and part of the purpose of it being a group offering is to create a space where, by the end of the third session, attendees can leave with a handful of potential partners and a few collaboration ideas ready to launch within a few weeks.
Throughout our 3 sessions, we’ll cover:
Company Deep Dive:
Mission, Vibe, & Audience
Execution & Offering
Goals & Success Metrics
What Do You Want?
Your CTAs (Calls to Action)
What Can You Offer?
Your Channels of Communication
Cultivating + Activating Your Community

Running a business is hard, often lonely work, and paying for promotion for your product, event, or service can only get you so far in this noisy world. Hiring a PR team to help get the word out can run you anywhere from $3,000 to $30,000 a month with no guaranteed ROI, which can feel like lighting a big pile of cash you don’t have on fire and watching it burn.
Why operate in a vacuum when you could collaborate with well-aligned partners to help one another gain exposure and hit your goals together? By harnessing the power of partnerships, you can more easily reach your future fans in a way that feels authentic, impactful, and - gasp! - even fun.
I am a collaboration connoisseur; a partnerships addict. When I see a great company doing exciting things, I can’t help but think of all the other companies they could work with to amplify their message. I believe that all companies have the potential to be better by sharing resources to accomplish a common goal.
I also have a natural affinity for structure, efficiency, and standard operating procedures, which was only deepened when I received my MBA with specializations in Entrepreneurship and Management. Couple that with my ability to adapt, innovate, and find creative solutions on the fly and you’ve got a woman who can make a plan and pull it off, no matter what hiccups come along the way.
In my time at General Assembly, I grew the Los Angeles email list from less than 20K to over 80K subscribers in a little over a year, primarily through well-aligned partnerships. Growing an email list is not thrilling, but bringing together like-minded communities both online and off for mutually-beneficial, highly-engaging, co-produced experiences and campaigns is.
My work with the Innovations Team at OMD challenged me to identify strategic partners for a variety of clients across many industries in a fast-paced, tight turnaround environment. With upwards of three ideation sessions per week, I established an expanded, adaptable partnerships process, and developed an eye for innovative collaborations that accomplished lofty goals on modest budgets with seemingly impossible timelines.
