A Rob Jackson Consulting training day – hosted by AVM – London

September 5, 2018 | 9:30 am - 4:30 pm

£85.00 – £99.00

Understanding and effecting real change for success in volunteer involvement

A training day by Rob Jackson Consulting: the training will cover two important topics for leaders and managers of volunteers to engage with:

Morning session

Understanding and engaging 21st century volunteers

This session will look at some of the key ways in which society is changing and how these changes affect volunteerism. We will discuss what leaders of volunteers can do to update their practices to accommodate these changes, further enhancing their engagement and retention of 21st century volunteers. There will be time for reflection, discussion and action planning too.

Afternoon session

Influencing to make change happen

Establishing an effective volunteer engagement strategy is rarely a subject understood, focused on or taken seriously by senior managers. In this session, we’ll advise participants on how to influence and help their senior leadership gain a new perspective on volunteering and lay the foundation for the effective volunteer involvement

In addition to the training, all participants will have access to:

• An electronic copy of the slides and associated handouts available as free downloads from a shared Dropbox folder

• A free copy of the second edition of the Turn Your Organisation Into a Volunteer Magnet eBook.

• An offer of a discounted subscription to e-volunteerism.com, the international online journal of volunteer leadership and management

• A 20% discount on the sale price for Rob Jackson and Susan J Ellis’ book, “From The Top Down – UK Edition”
