“Never underestimate the power of a small group of committed citizens to change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that has.” Margaret Mead was so right and volunteers have the capacity to transform your organisation if you provide the conditions to encourage and support them.

Workshop covers:

• Understanding the motivation to volunteer

• Key principles of volunteer connection

• Managing the critical points of the volunteer life-cycle

• Rewarding the behaviour you want in ways that they will appreciate
