I gave a 60 minute workshop on Staging Effective Events & Engaging Volunteers at the North American Conference for Critical Animal Studies in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA on Saturday 22 June.

Here's the Blurb:
How to engage and empower community members to use their skills and expertise to solve the problems that exists in our universe. Leigh-Chantelle will use her previous experience with events and volunteers in the vegan, animal rights, environmental and feminist movements to impart her knowledge and inspire others to become effective activists – both in person and online.
Topics include (but are not limited to):
Staging Effective Events:
  • Goals, Aims and how to gauge Achievements
  • Who and What you need
  • Venue and Transportation
  • Public Liability, Licences and Regulations
  • Grants, Budget & Covering Costs
  • Marketing, Promotion, Networking & Word of Mouth
  • Environmental Practices & Leaving No Trace
Team Building & Engaging Volunteers:
  • Inspiring passion in others
  • Leading by Example
  • Working together & Autonomy
  • Respecting differing opinions and work styles
  • Focusing on Strengths and working on Challenges
  • Engaging every age at all stages
