Next Wednesday 11th July from 11.30 to 2.30pm we will be holding our 9th annual conference for volunteer co-ordinators entitled ‘How to Professionalise yourself in volunteer management.’
Our amazing key speaker will be Sue Jones who is the Training Manager at the Volunteer Centre Warrington in England, leading the development and delivery of a range of learning products within the organization’s Excellence in Volunteer Management programme (evm). This includes qualifications, bespoke training, workshops and e-learning.
Passionate about raising the profile of the profession and helping individual volunteer managers realise their potential, Jones currently leads a national team of volunteers who all work as volunteer managers to champion issues in the profession and to create a new generation of voices through blogging, writing and speaking at events
In addition, Jones is a Leadership and Career Coach, supporting and enabling individuals to convert their ideas, thoughts and issues into positive, impact-making action.
How lucky are we to have Sue as our inspirational speaker?
So far we have over 30 people attending, covering 20 charities so if you are interested please call the JVN office on 0208 203 6427 to book your place.
In addition our very own Leonie Lewis will be speaking at Alyth’s Social Justice Showcase this Sunday 12-2.30pm.
Her speech is entitled, ‘Giving of oneself using the book, The Giving Tree.’
Laurence Guinness Head of Campaigns and Research at the Kids Company will be headlining the event and will talk about their new campaign, ‘Stop Hunger from ruining a child’s life.’ There are some staggering statistics about children in Britain surviving on just one meal a day.
There is so much to be done – it’s just a question of a bit of time and a little commitment. It’s great to be working together in our community to do the best we can.
