Andrea Johnston & Katie Pergau

Imagine an event where the connection between attendees, committee members, vendors, and staff were seamlessly executed, to the delight of everyone involved. That is the result of a ‘volunteer army’ who’s at peak performance! But, to paraphrase Marcus Buckingham, “You not only need to get the right people on your bus, you need to get them in the right seats, too!” This workshop will help any leader or organization better align the needs of your event with the unique abilities of the volunteers involved, designing your team into a well-oiled machine.

Three KEY Learning Outcomes:

1. Understand the unique abilities that each volunteer brings to the table.

2. Strategies to align the needs of your event/festival to the strengths of your volunteers.

3. Connecting volunteers with purpose, for a positive experience and outcome for all

Andrea has been a coach for over 20 years! Whether it’s correcting movement as a dance teacher, addressing lifestyle choices as a personal trainer or shifting someone’s mindset as a professional speaker and corporate trainer, the approach may be different but the outcome is the same: limitless opportunity for personal and professional growth!


As a Certified Human Behaviour Specialist, Andrea delivers material that's engaging and relevant to improving our connections with others. Audiences are entertained, as they learn through story-telling and humour, allowing them to reflect on their own perspectives while exploring new strategies for making impactful and lasting change.
