The Aid Station
In today's edition of The Aid Station, we travel to Geelong, not far from Melbourne in Australia to meet Shannan Gove, Co-Founder and Director of Rosterfy. Shannan's story probably mirrors that of many in the Mass Participation industry - starting out as a volunteer and going on to build a career positively impacting the lives of millions. He shares the journey which started by "getting a handful of uni students to volunteer on the Melbourne Marathon" and has turned into a global business that that helps the likes of Spartan, Super Bowl and London Marathon recruit train and deploy huge volunteer workforces. His positive attitude and ability to see the opportunities in these times shines through at every stage. One of his key tips is "don't be too harsh on yourself, do the best you can but enjoy the time with your family or take time for yourself" In his case that includes spending time with his seven month old daughter Evie. One of his top priorities is being in regular contact with and supporting his staff and clients. "People remember the way you make them feel when things are tough - not just in the good times".
