‍Rob guests on Dana’s priceless advice

‍Our colleague Dana Litwin recently launched a new YouTube channel, “Dana's Priceless Advice with Leaders of Volunteers”. As part of this project, Dana interviewed Rob in London on 27 January 2020. That video has now been uploaded to Dana’s channel is available to view today.


‍As Dana says: “we have a funny and touching deep dive discussion on how volunteering is changing day to day, how NGO and other agency leaders are or are NOT recognizing the strategic importance of volunteering, #LeadersOfVolunteers as volunteers ourselves, near future hopes and dreams about volunteer engagement, UK vs. USA credentialing and practice (AVM, AL!VE, CCVA), professional development advice (WRITE!!!), controversial subjects like #Brexit and Star Trek v Star Wars, who among our mutual friends will be mad at us for some of these jokes, and how we're all in this together - cooperation wins over competition.”
