Check out some of the feedback from attendees of recent learning & capacity building offerings:

  • Volunteer Management & Leadership e-learning 2020I always find these webinars excellent. It’s always a wonderful opportunity to reflect on current practice and see how one can adopt new practices. The nature of volunteering is that it is constantly changing and it is important to keep up to date
  • My first webinar and it was excellent. Very well presented and delivered.
  • Thank you for a useful and enjoyable session.

  • I think these are important pieces to keep volunteer managers sane as well as reassured and keep learning while working from home, lots of advantages of bite sized training.
  • Thanks for organising this, much helpful!
  • Thank you. It packed the hour – context, strategy, bigger picture and detail.
  • This was an excellent and a much-needed webinar for volunteer professionals and those now finding themselves managing groups of helpers! Well presented too.
