Working with high-level volunteers can be very rewarding for charities. The profile they can bring, as well as skills and experience can be of immeasurable value. But if the relationship is the wrong one it can be frustrating and damaging for all concerned. So just how do you get it right? In "Patrons, Presidents and Personalities", the only book to look exclusively at this important area of volunteering, Eileen Hammond takes the key questions and tackles them with sound advice garnered from over 30 years experience in the charitable sector. What is the difference between patrons, presidents and personalities? How do you identify and find the right individual for your charity? How do you to persuade personalities to give time to your cause? How do you maintain a mutually rewarding relationship? Written in a lively, engaging way and packed with practical case studies from both sides of the fence, this book will help you reach the personalities that other books cannot.
