How to Avoid "Death by Powerpoint"

With Anne-Maree Kerr – Leep IT Consultant
11am-12pm, 1 August 2017 

There are over 30 million presentations given daily, many of them using PowerPoint or a similar program to support the spoken word. The problem is that the layout and content of these presentations often take away from, rather than enhance the content.

Often the speaker is nervous and believes that by putting lots of details and words onto their slides the audience won’t notice. Others believe in the “more is more” philosophy and put every thought they have had about a topic up onto the screen.

To truly connect with your audience you need a better plan. In this 1 hr webinar we will provide you with some tools, tactics and terrific takeaways to ensure your next presentation is memorable and leaves your audience inspired.

Building Innovation in Volunteerism through Digital Inclusion

With Laura Goddard – Head of Volunteer Solutions, Leep
11am-12pm, 8 August 2017 

The volunteering landscape within Australian communities is shifting.

Many individuals wishing to volunteer are seeking opportunities that meet their own needs and fit within demanding personal and professional schedules. This diverse volunteer pool demands new ways of thinking and planning for volunteer engagement that fosters social, economic and digital inclusion for volunteers and communities alike.

Leep believes that the possibilities volunteering and digital technology offer should be available to all, and have been working at the forefront of community engagement in Western Sydney for over 20 years. This webinar will draw on our experience across both the volunteer and digital sector to facilitate new ways of thinking about volunteer engagement.

We will present evidence detailed in our series of White Papers released in 2016  and showcase our framework for volunteer engagement that has been applied to our Leep in Lab.

The Leep in Lab is a pilot program initiated by Leep, which provides one-on-one digital mentoring to assist community members to get online. Volunteers are an intrinsic component of this program, and have been supported and encouraged to steer their engagement as digital mentors.

Webinar participants will be invited to consider how they involve volunteers in the imagining of roles within their organisations, and provided with space to workshop ideas that build and enhance volunteer leadership.

Ultimately, this webinar will consider how organisations that adapt, create roles that harness volunteer leadership and embrace digital inclusion can strengthen their ability to build and activate volunteer programs – future proofing the support they offer to their community.

Australian’s are very busy people – working an average of 4 extra hours a week to be able to get through their to do list. Yet we are also extremely generous and looking for ways to give back that use our skills and enable us to volunteer on our own terms.
