Who are Ambassadors?

Ambassadors are respected and networked figures in the HR industry, especially those with direct experience in corporate training, learning, and development. Many of our Ambassadors include HR consultants and executive coaches.

What do Ambassadors do?

Leveraging their extensive networks and industry knowledge, Ambassadors help identify companies that could benefit from Hone’s training offerings and introduce these companies to Hone. Ambassadors work closely with the Hone team to nurture the discussion between the referral company and Hone.

Benefits for Ambassadors

We use an automated platform, PartnerStack that gives you access to a portal to easily manage all of your referrals.


    1. For new referrals, simply click the “Submit a Referral’ button within your partner portal. 
    2. Your referral will be connected to a Hone Sales Representative, and we will take it from there.
    3. You will receive updates on the status of the referral as they go through our complete sales cycle.
    4. From time to time, the Sales Representative may reach out for your guidance or your support to nurture the referral.

Are there any referrals that might not be accepted?

The following referrals may not be accepted: (1) Existing Hone clients or existing active opportunities with Hone; (2) Referrals already attributed to another Ambassador, within a 90-day window; (3) Companies with less than 100 employees or less than 20 potential learners.

Is there a limit to my revenue potential?

There is no limit to the number of referrals that we accept from Ambassadors.

Will I be involved in renewals for engagements following the first year?

Currently, Ambassadors’ involvement is limited to first-time engagements (pilot and expansion). In select cases, we may invite Ambassadors to support renewal conversations, in which case we will share a reward of 5% of renewal contract value.
