With safety first the priority both for the voluntary organisations and those who regulate them, how can the local sports club or fundraiser fulfil their duty of care without getting overwhelmed by form filling?
Now Generosity Knows No BoundsWhen David Miller, our featured guest on this week's Kickstart Your Business, and his colleague Rowan Devereux needed to recruit other parents to the various working groups at their local football club, they realised there was a massive gap between paying lip service to safely bringing volunteers on board, and doing it right. And so they decided to develop the Complyfile software to help organisations everywhere safely recruit volunteers.
Making Time To Save Time
Gerard particularly liked the ease of navigation through ComplyFile.com and noted how the site authors cleverly advise on the length of time (60 seconds) it takes to watch the introductory video, which enables the visitor to easily choose whether or not to view it. Too many publishers ask for an open-ended commitment, the same type of commitment that David & Rowan address through their time-saving and coherent on-boarding software.
Step Forward & Say What You Think
How do you suggest that David and Rowan can get the whole world volunteering in a safe and practical way?
Listen back to David on Kickstart Your Business and let us know what you think; we'd love to hear from you.
Kickstart Your Business broadcasts at 6.20pm every Thursday on Newstalk's The Right Hook, and is available on playback immediately following the show.
A note from Gerard: When I'm not helping to Kickstart Your Business, I work with business-owners of all shapes and sizes to help them build a brand that stands up to the competition and stands out in the marketplace. You can find out more about my work at Islandbridge.
Once a year, I work closely with twelve ambitious business-owners through our six-week Raising A Brand Programme. Our next programme kicks off on February 9th for six Tuesday afternoon sessions; you can find out more at Raising A Brand
