Making the most of Employee Volunteering
Bedford, United Kingdom
This unique conference is set to be one of the highlights of the Year of the Volunteer and will provide one of this year's premier forums on employee community involvement.

Delegates will get to learn the distinct ways in which some of the world's top businesses are making employee volunteering work for them, as well as the chance to network with a host of likeminded organisations. Other highlights include a 'Question Time' panel debate chaired by BBC World Affairs Correspondent Mike Wooldridge, and interactive seminars specially designed by four of the UK's leading organisations in employee volunteering.

Speakers include:

  • Dwight Tierney, Viacom, Senior Executive VP, Europe, Africa and the Middle East
