Event Details

Rob Jackson, a UK based professional, is one of the leading authorities on volunteering in the world. He is undertaking a training tour of Australia and New Zealand and Southern Volunteering in partnership with the Australasian Association of Managers of Volunteers (AAMoV) have booked him for the only session available in South Australia.

This is an opportunity not to be missed! Rob has written, spoken and trained on volunteer program management internationally, for over 20 years.

Structure of the day

Morning: Understanding and engaging 21st century volunteers

Volunteering today is not the same as it was twenty years ago. We will look at some of the key ways in which society is changing and how these changes affect volunteerism. However, just exploring these changes isn't enough. We will also discuss what leaders of volunteers can do to update their practices to accommodate these changes, further enhancing their engagement and retention of 21st century volunteers.

Afternoon: Social media and volunteer management

The social media revolution is here. How can we use social media to enhance our work with volunteers? How can we keep up with the endless change and, even better, get ahead of the curve? We will provide some answers, looking at what social media is and how it can be used to recruit new volunteers and communicate with our current teams. Whether its a mystery to you or you want to share your experience, this session will challenge, inspire and enthuse you to take action and go social.

 Last hour: Ask Rob Anything

OK, maybe not anything but anything related to leading and managing volunteers!  Bring your burning questions for Rob and you will engage in a lively debate with each other about the topics covered. It’s a bit different but
always fun. What will you ask?


We held this (now updated) session two years ago when Rob was in Australia. This is some of the feedback received then;

"I loved getting the world picture regarding volunteering. The session was pitched at the right level with lots of information about tools to support me as a volunteer manager. It affirmed the way I think and approach volunteer management. I loved the open discussion at the tables - I could go on!"

"I liked the structure of the day, with all the input in the morning and applying that thinking to the Social Media session in the afternoon. The information was easily digestable and delivered at the right pace for me. It was the right mix of humour and light bulb moments and data input, so I remained engaged throughout the whole day."

"A great learning experience."

"Very useful training - thank you!"
