With so many working parts involved in the Jeans for Genes campaign, Eventeamwork provided me invaluable peace of mind that our locations and volunteer program were in the safest of hands. If the team can handle the myriad of challenges we threw at them and still over-deliver, they can deal with any event be it big or small.

We save time and resources recruiting and supervising a volunteer coordinator each year and we know our volunteers are looked after well and provide excellent customer service and represent our festival as required.

Eventeamwork’s expertise and project management ensure a smooth running of our volunteer program with minimal supervision.

Our IMPACTS Methodology draws on 7 years of experience in managing volunteer programs for hundreds of events, including public events, community festivals, conferences, fundraising events and sporting events.

Stakeholder engagement when running large scale events

Bringing a large-scale event to life that truly reflects your vision will almost always require buy-in from the various stakeholders involved.

Unfortunately, the interests of some stakeholders are not always in alignment with your plans and the plans of other players, from government representative to key staff.

Stressed about finding enough volunteers?

The focus on numbers takes your focus from the ultimate goal of creating outstanding event experiences.

This changes your message to the market and the perception of your event brand.

This means your volunteer workforce can be your biggest risk when sacrificing the customer experience.

Instead of only planning for no shows, let’s PLAN for show ups and retention!

Your Workforce can be your biggest asset but it can also be your biggest risk

Bicycle NSW runs major mass participation cycling events and depending on the event we require up to 300 volunteers on event day.  ETK have been able to fulfill our volunteering needs and have managed the large group exceptionally well from registration all the way to event day. Their on the day support and management is excellent, providing 4 senior staff to manage the volunteers on the day.  Their reporting, communication and general enthusiasm for the job is first class and i would be very happy to recommend them to any event provider looking to outsource their volunteering needs.
