In his latest blog postRob looks back on three things he watched with interest during 2017 and asks you for your reflection on the year just gone and the year to come.

"Leaders of volunteers are largely enthusiastic about utilising technology to innovate and develop the work of volunteers. The problem is they consistently come up against boards and senior managers who don’t understand the modern realities of volunteering and fail to resource this essential work adequately. That, coupled with many organisations practising risk avoidance as they live in fear of technologies they don’t understand, is causing much frustration amongst leaders of volunteers."

In his latest monthly column for Third Sector onlineRob warns against a culture of fear and risk avoidance as GDPR draws near to implementation in 2018.

"...Senior management teams and boards increasingly practise risk avoidance, not risk management. They listen to and act upon the advice of these specialists, who scaremonger by describing the worst possible scenarios. Yet they never consult or listen to their own volunteer engagement experts, who could outline how likely it is that the risks will actually occur (usually much less likely than the specialists think) and how to effectively mitigate those risks."
