The Suffolk Volunteering Conference is being hosted at BT’s Adastral Park, on the 17th of May 2018. The conference aims to bring together Suffolk’s businesses and voluntary organisations, in order to learn from one another.

The Suffolk Volunteering Conference 2018

There will be a combination of presentations and practical workshops to demonstrate the value of ESV (Employer Supported Volunteering) to Suffolk’s business community. ESV allows employees to pursue volunteering opportunities during work time. This practice also gives businesses the opportunity to invest in communities and become more socially responsible, whilst developing staff skills and experience.

At Mackman, we are excited to be hosting a workshop at the Conference entitled ‘Working with other brands – Finding the right fit’, which will cover how to find the right brand, whether you are a business or a charity, to work or collaborate with.
