Carol Moulder – Events Manager, Education
Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors – London Region
How did you get involved with volunteering for Barnet EBP?
I think Fiona approached RICS and was put in touch with me for the
London region. We met at RICS and agreed that I plus a surveyor member (as
I am not a surveyor) would deliver our Olympic park presentation.
What programme did you volunteer on?
Careers 4 U
Was it what you expected?
Better than I expected
What was your most memorable moment about the day and why?
I've done four. The event at Henrietta Barnett school was the most
rewarding. Memorable in seeing the students deliver their presentation back
to you - when they present what they have learned from your session.
Interesting to see what sticks and what doesn't.
What would you say to encourage/inspire someone who's not quite sure
if they would like to volunteer to volunteer?
If you are passionate about your work - then it's a personal challenge
to convey that enthusiasm to a class of students who can 'take it or leave
it'. If you are up for that - you will find it rewarding. If you can appreciate that
some will find your 'career' interesting and some won't and still get a buzz
from those who do - you will find the work very rewarding.
Would you volunteer again and why
I am always happy to help out if I can.
