Managing volunteers comes with its challenges and its stresses, that’s why we want to end our conference with a session focused all about you and maintaining your well-being. Dave will help you learn about mindfulness which involves paying purposeful attention to your experience, and approaching life with openness and curiosity. It is all about your personal development and connecting more with the world around you. Mindfulness helps you to respond with care and consideration rather than react from a place of habit or impulse. Dave will also cover the principles of resilience which is your capacity to bounce back quickly from work and life difficulties. We will emphasise some self-care techniques and the importance of using them regularly, not just when you are running on empty. Overall, reflection on mindfulness, resilience and self-care helps you operate at your best and fosters a deeper understanding of yourself and your volunteers. Leave the conference feeling inspired and ready for change.
