Up-coming Exult Workshops

Are you looking for practical ideas for raising funds, marketing your cause and growing great volunteer teams?

Thanks to an ongoing relationship with Bay Trust, we have another run of subsidised workshops happening throughout the Bay of Plenty. Some of the sessions are already close to full, so if you’re keen to get along, I recommend you register now to secure your space. Click on the workshop links for more information.

Growing Great Volunteer Teams

When it comes to volunteering, people are spoiled for choice. There is no shortage of organisations to get involved with, so in order to attract volunteers and keep them on-board, you need to offer them the best possible experience. Learn what drives people to volunteer and discover simple strategies for ensuring your volunteers get what they need to stay involved.
