Workshop – “Recruitment Ideas and Experiences” – a JMO event

Recruitment is always a hot topic for morris sides/teams.

The JMO (*) is hosting a panel from across all 3 morris organisations, to share their tips and experiences of what has worked well for their team/side.  Each speaker will speak for around 15-20 minutes then time for Q&A before moving on to the next speaker.

Topics we plan to cover will include:

  • Ant Veal (Beltane) – Survey of recruitment avenues; Communicating with 20k+ Facebook followers;
  • Michael Stimpson (Phoenix) – Recruiting whilst dancing out; Giving talks; Printing cards;
  • Dan de la Bedoyere (Glastonbury) – Using Facebook Business Suite; YouTube; Tik Tok;
  • Ollie Simons (Peterborough) – Aims of practising and recruitment drives (setting an event as a target); Associations with other local organisations.

Please bring your own ideas and experiences to share, too.
