Embracing Events Webinar: Delivering A Successful Volunteer Programme

The 'Embracing Events' series continued with this webinar focusing on Delivering a Successful Volunteer Programme. 

What did we cover?

In this webinar, we provided an overview of the key considerations when integrating volunteers into your event or festival team.

Conversational in format, a panel representing a variety of facets of volunteering brought their experience to the table.

The panel was led and facilitated by Lesley Maltman, The Eventor and also included the following contributors

  • Alison Gordon - Openhouse Festival 
  • Claire O'Neill - Belfast City Marathon
  • Lindsay Armstrong - Volunteer Now
  • Jayne O'Neile - Visit Belfast 
  • Karolyn Gaston -  Representing Volunteers 

From recruitment to retention and specialist skills to welfare, the panel shared their volunteering dos and don’ts, helping organisers to ensure they create and maintain great relationships with these key members of any event delivery team.
