For some time at Overland Club we have been actively making small individual deals with people who are participants in our classes. This has grown bit by bit from the desire to share "value" and "energy" with everyone who participates in the services that we offer by swapping time and or knowledge with each other. We are already getting help from a number of people including some from outside of Vietnam for all of the items on the list below. We would like to add more items to the list and also better organize the system so that as many people as possible can participate.
The Partnership System works for people ,who are our members and have already enjoyed our classes, help with whatever they can do on this list. It is good enough that you just help us when you have the time. All that is needed is agreement on both sides that the following criteria are met: something that is of benefit to the promotion or the daily operations of the Overland Club studios, and with the feeling of someone who actually participates as a partner in the Overland Club.
We do want to consider other ideas for items on the list, but the key is going to be how to define the standard of "benefit". At present I (Tomizawa) am deciding this based on consultation with my main staff and participating partners. I would like to keep doing it this way basically case-by-case so that everyone is satisfied. There will be no monetary payment for this help. The whole premise of the arrangement is that it is based on a swap for our services.
Please let us know if you are interested, and please don't hesitate to ask if you have questions or want more information.
