MOVE with Purpose
with Mary Ellen Randall, Founder/CEO of
Ascot Technologies, Inc.
Have you ever wondered how to take a seed of an idea to reality? The IEEE MOVE (Mobile Outreach utilizing Volunteer Engagement) started that way. That seed just celebrated its 6th anniversary of providing service to the community and is expanding internationally. MOVE volunteers support disaster relief agencies committed to assisting victims of natural disasters, such as hurricanes, forest fires, and flooding. It brings assistance in terms of short-term communications, computer, and power solutions, allowing those affected by these natural disasters to stay connected. When not deployed for natural disasters, MOVE volunteers conduct community outreach and facilitate learning opportunities for students and the general public in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). Learn the key steps and MOVE with purpose.
In this presentation, Mary Ellen Randall will have the following key take-aways:
- How to bring a vague idea to a fully developed international program.
- How to build team engagement and enthusiasm
- How to develop relationships outside your immediate community
