Meet Teresa Stas

Teresa Stas is a national speaker, author, and CEO of Green Cactus Event Sponsorship Agency.  Her book “Sell Your Event!” was named one of the best new sponsorship books to read in 2022 by BookAuthority, and landed #1 in three categories on the Amazon Bestsellers List upon its debut.
