Volunteer as a speaker
Do you want to motivate and inspire young people to realise their potential and to consider employment opportunities in the food, drink and retail industry? Can you offer your time to volunteer as a speaker at an Insights from Industry session in a school or college?
If the answer is yes, we’d love to hear from you. You’ll join a growing network of over 200 volunteer speakers from industry who find their volunteering with us rewarding and enjoyable. And you’ll get as much out of the experience as the students.
>> What our volunteer speakers say about their experience
Skills workshop leaders
Following a successful pilot, we’re now rolling out a programme of smaller, participative workshops to the schools and colleges that have previously booked Insights from Industry sessions with us. If you’d be interested in leading one of these workshops (interview skills, presentation skills, team-working and problem solving), in a school or hosting at your place of work, please get in touch.
Employee volunteering programmes
If your company runs an employee volunteering scheme, or is thinking of setting one up, the Working Options programme could provide an ideal opportunity. If you’d like us to run a ‘lunch and learn’ session for your staff, we’re happy to come along to your workplace.
Like me, many Diageo employees are looking for opportunities to give back to the local charities and communities that we live and work in, so with an expanding network and a need for motivational speakers of all ages and experience, Working Options provides a great fit for us. We held a lunch and learn session in our London office attended by around 75 employees and the session was a great success. It was informal yet informative and engaging, and we signed up over 50 volunteers on the day. Julia Dixon, Senior National Account Manager, Diageo
