Make Things Happen

Many organisations are run exclusively or primarily by volunteers. These organisations have the same responsibility as professional ones to ensure that their activities are successful and that their people - the volunteers - are supported positively and are able to contribute in a managed way.

These workshops aim at introducing a series of management techniques and processes from the professional world but tailored to the volunteer environment.

Workshops for voluntary organisations
Event planning
Risk management
People management
IT for teams

Ensuring that all the aspects of running an event - whether a one-off or regular series - are covered

Reviewing with volunteers their roles to ensure they have the support necessary and to share experience and ideas with others in the team

Making people risk-aware (not risk averse) and providing simple processes for assessing and managing risks

Enabling volunteers to have the necessary level of IT skills to contribute effectively and to use computers to communicate and share information across teams
