We recently held a training opportunity for our volunteers who were interested in becoming an Oasis Ambassador, or who were keen to develop their confidence, self-esteem and public speaking skills. The event was hosted by the inimitable Barbara Sturgeon, award winning BBC Radio presenter and journalist.
Our volunteers were really excited and got stuck in to learning how to use a microphone, how to project their voice, and exercises designed to overcome any shyness they may have had around public speaking. Those that attended stated that they ‘felt really positive’ having completed the training, with one person feeding back that: 'This gave me the confidence to achieve what I want to do, and change people's lives'.
Our new Oasis Ambassadors will now be supported in their volunteer roles, as they begin to speak at local community events and groups, spreading the Oasis message, and raising awareness of the vital work that we do.
