Dana 's Guests and Their Session Topics

Overcoming the Challenges in Change - Barbara Harrington – Sponsorship Plus

Patience can be a virtue when facing the new and different. But not forever. Learn a five-step strategy to overcome the challenges associated with change. And it starts with making fears productive. A powerful and personal story delivered by a trusted advisor to charities large and small. It’s a message of how individuals, leaders and organizations can begin to right their universe when the world seems to want otherwise. Barbara’s on a mission to see that nonprofits and their most valuable asset — Volunteer Leadership — benefit from her story and understand how to replace their challenges in change with action and energy.

The Pending Changes in Society - Erin Spink M.A – Spinktank

Although Bob Dylan famously sang, “The Times They Are A-Changin” in the 60s, nothing better sums up the reality we’re living with today in 2017. From the political to social to technological landscapes, rapid and significant change is our new reality. Join Erin Spink as she explores many of these changes and what changes this may mean for leaders of volunteers.

Navigating Organizational Changes - Carol Dixon – Providence Health Care

Maybe not in your world, but in mine all the ideas for change don’t come from me. Many are terrific, way overdue. Some are ingenious, I wish I thought of them. And others, well not how I would have chosen to do it. I need to do it anyway, I need to lead the change, model the change and take others with me – through the change. On October 24th and 25th I’ll be telling the story of how I convinced and cajoled; sympathized and sulked; drove and was dragged my own heels through organizational change.

Change in Your Professional Career - Andy Fryar – OZVPM & Better Impact

Change is a constant. It’s happening all around us, every minute of every day – and all too often, it is not occurring in small bit sized chunks, but rather in giant, tumultuous leaps! So, why would the profession of volunteer leadership and the effective engagement of volunteers be in any way exempt from this change? The ‘evolution’ of the profession is something Andy has been passionate about for many years, and his presentation will challenge participants to consider just what our great profession might need to look like as we delve into this brave new future.
