By far this presentation was one of the favorites as everyone connected with Betsy and she had all of us interacting with not only herself but each other. The information she spoke about was something we all needed to hear and was very inspiring.

  • Webinars — Typically 60-minutes in length, we conduct webinars using Zoom technology with accompanying PowerPoints and handouts on just about any topic desired in volunteer engagement. Webinars are generally one-way learning experiences by nature, which limits interaction. However, our presenters are always active in the chat feature and allow time for questions.  
     
  • Interactive Learning Sessions — Our trainers are flexible and very comfortable using a variety of technologies to support participant learning. Interactive sessions are frequently hosted using a combination of Zoom, group breakouts, online digital white boards and other collaboration tools. We facilitate learning by designing virtual hands-on activities and discussions centered around particular topics that need exploration, guiding participants in identifying their program needs and implementing solutions. Interactive learning sessions can range from 90 minutes to several hours, depending on the number of participants and topics to be explored.

Amazing, I have so much to take away to apply to my volunteer coordinator position as well as my professional job. The slides were super engaging.
Betsy is an amazing presenter! I was very impressed with her extensive knowledge, covering of all the relevant topics/concerns in volunteer supervision, giving meaningful advice, and her preparedness in answering all of the participant questions.
