Volunteers form part of the fabric of society and like everyone else they need to be managed and led, but management practices and styles that are successful in the workplace do not always translate into the world of the volunteer. In this session David Caddick will explore some of the essential differences between employees and volunteers, the leadership challenges of managing volunteers and the how experiences from the workplace and the volunteerplace can add benefit to both.
David Caddick MBE BA(Hons) MLitt MA MBA FCMI has been a volunteer in the RAF Reserve since 2007. He commanded an RAF Reserve Squadron for 4 years and been deployed on operations in Afghanistan (the Ultimate Volunteering Experience!). He is a Board member of the Highland Reserve Forces and Cadets Association and has been the joint Chair of a Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) regional branch and chair of a CIPD regional group. He has served as a member on a school Parent Council and is currently the chair of a sporting club with almost 100 members. When he is not volunteering he has run his own management development consultancy and is currently on a year long sabbatical to complete his PhD.
