Michelle Stafford, Sector Development Senior Manager, Volunteering Queensland
Michelle has come to Volunteering Queensland from a wide-ranging career spanning the community, youth, hospitality, sport and recreation and training industries. The roles held in these industries are just as diverse and contribute to the fabric of knowledge she brings to her training sessions and engagement with the many volunteer-involving organisations she has worked with.
At Volunteering Queensland Michelle manages the Registered Training Organisation (RTO) as well as supporting the delivery of workshops and consultancies to volunteer-involving organisations. Her involvement in Volunteer Services delivery rounds out her experience and breadth of knowledge of volunteering. Michelle treasures the learning and knowledge she gets each and every time she works with a volunteer-involving organisation and knows that sharing her knowledge is only half of the benefits of training as she develops a stronger, richer view of the sector she represents.
Michelle has been a volunteer throughout her life and continues to take up opportunities to give back but admits she is a serial episodic volunteer and doesn’t stick with one organisation for the long term like she used to do but chooses to try out lots of different experiences.
National Standards In-service
If after attending the National Standards for Volunteer Involvement workshop, you would like more support in developing a plan for implementation, Volunteering Queensland can conduct an in-house workshop with your staff and Volunteer Coordinator to examine and discuss the way ahead for implementation for your organisation.
