Volunteer Conference

What happened at the 2019 conference?

The 2019 Volunteer Conference was held on Friday 7 and Saturday 8 June in London.

The event provided Macmillan volunteers with an understanding of our future plans, and the vital role they play to help us achieve it.

Highlights from the event:

  • an eye-opening talk from Mike Taylor, who shared his cancer story and Macmillan experience with us
  • two interactive exhibitions, which showcased Macmillan’s plans for the future and how we will aim to be right there for people, no matter what cancer throws their way
  • insightful talks from our CEO Lynda Thomas and Volunteering Director, Joelle Leader, with time to chat about Macmillan’s future with senior leaders
  • workshops designed to support volunteers’ learning and development, to help them to communicate and deliver aspects of our strategy
  • our inspirational Macmillan Volunteer Awards, where we came together to celebrate and acknowledge the achievements of our national award winners.

It was a fantastic two days and we are thankful to everyone who took part.
