Trends in hospital gift shops are changing as more and more Volunteer Directors/Managers are wearing a dual hat of Volunteer Manager and Gift Shop Manager. Whether you are a seasoned retail aficionado or have never managed a retail store in your life, the dual hat creates the ultimate challenge of doing less with more. This audio conference will allow Volunteer Directors/Managers to discuss the challenges associated with wearing a dual hat; ultimately learning about opportunities to maximize their time while creating a positive impact on their gift shop’s bottom line. 

Three Learning Objectives:

  1. Time Management
  2. Empowering your employees/volunteers
  3. Using Tools for Success
