Ronald McDonald House Charities is the central organisation behind the Ronald McDonald houses, rooms and holiday homes. Their purpose is to keep families as closely together as possible, by supporting parents in times of need when they have a child that is ill and hospitalised.
Within Ronald McDonald House Charities, I am the Team Manager Services. This means that together with my team, I am responsible for all internal affairs. This includes the contributor administration, IT, overarching facility projects, training our volunteers and showing our appreciation to them. After all, we could not exist without their efforts. In 2015 we developed a training curriculum for our 1,900 volunteers in order to thank them for their work. This offers our volunteers the opportunity to participate in training courses that help them to accomplish even more as a volunteer and enrich them as individuals. To enable each of them to participate without having to go through great lengths to be present, we started to look for various training venues at central locations throughout the Netherlands. As we are an prime brand as a charity, we wanted to maintain the same quality standard for our meetings.
We already knew Onemeeting.com because their mother organisation, the Regardz Hospitality Group, is one of our sponsors who thinks along with us in many aspects. Our study curriculum was developed together with NCOI and the Regardz Hospitality Group.
How Onemeeting.com helps us
Our Houses are of course not aimed at hosting training sessions, which means we rely on external training venues. Onemeeting.com supports us in finding the right solutions for all these training sessions. By doing do, we are able to host them at various venues, while always maintaining the same quality levels.
The training days are so well taken care off and breathe so much hospitality, that our volunteers truly experience them as a gift. This entirely fits with what we want to achieve. Furthermore, Onemeeting.com took over all contact with the various venues from me, after which their Meeting Expert became my single point of contact. This saves me an incredible amount of work. Invoicing is also an easy process. I always receive a properly specified invoice for each venue, which makes the administrative component much more efficient as well.
We try to get as much done as possible, with as few people as possible, both at our office and in our Houses. Within this context, it is great to receive expert support. This collaboration saves us a great deal of time and much needed funds in the process, so I absolutely recommend Onemeeting.com to others!
