The Power of Meaningful Conversations

The Power of Meaningful Conversations

Reading Time: 2 minutes

There’s power in meaningful conversations.

Last Friday, we had the privilege of hosting the “In Conversation with” series at the Volunteer Management Circuit. We heard from Mr Nigel Lee, Manager of Lutheran Community Care Services, on the topic of designing volunteer roles for success.

Mr Nigel Lee sharing his journey

As part of our effort to help circuit participants learn relevant “hands-on” skills, we intentionally curate each of these conversation segments. We hope to bring together volunteer management professionals for a meaningful and in-depth dialogue on how we can effectively and strategically partner volunteers.

Rather than being a simple presentation, each conversation segment presents the circuit participants and the invited guest the opportunity to broaden perspectives, share ideas, discuss real volunteer management challenges, collaboratively problem-solve as well as learn from one another.

What made last Friday’s “In Conversation With” segment even more special was the fact that the sharing was anchored by a circuit alumnus from Generation 2. It was particularly interesting to hear how Nigel returned to his portfolio after the circuit barely 8 months ago, strategically worked with staff, engaged the board to help them better understand and experience the work and designed empowering volunteer roles. He was thus able to grow the volunteer programme by some 300% and enabled the organization to reach and serve even more today.

We thank Nigel and Lutheran Community Care Services for making the conversation a success.
