Event Details

What an amazing day of learning and networking that we have lined up for you. 

Join us for our first ever Best Practice Plus volunteer management workshop, which will be followed by a networking lunch and volunteer managers' forum.

Our day will kick off with the volunteer management workshop, 'Difficult Conversations With Volunteers', delivered by Rupal Karia and Sheila Norris from Volunteer Centre Camden - who have more than 24 years' volunteer management experience between them.  

In one morning, this workshop will cover:

  • Identifying situations that would result in a difficult conversation
  • How to make sure the conversation goes as smoothly as possible (including preparation, timing and effective communication)
  • Next steps (including dealing with the potential fall out) after the conversation
  • Practical things you can do to avoid difficult conversations in the first place

The workshop will be interactive and will feature role plays and scenarios which you will explore in small groups. We encourage participants to bring their own examples of difficult conversations so that this course is as relevant to you as possible. 

Following the workshop will be a networking lunch and volunteer managers' forum where we will discuss a variety of topics relating to volunteer management, or we can carry on with situations which relate to difficult conversations. The content of the forum is decided by you on the day. 

For this forum, together we will:

  • Examine real life examples of volunteer management challenges in your organisation and help you identify what to do next
  • Look at some of the underlying causes of difficulties, and consider strategies to prevent them
