October 29: Beth Steinhorn

Ms. Steinhorn is President of Denver-based VQ Volunteer Strategies, a leading provider of high-impact volunteer engagement solutions designed to help organizations raise their VQ – or volunteer quotient (Volunteer quotient is an organization’s ability to leverage volunteer talent for greater impact). She partners with organizations and their leadership to increase their impact through strategic and innovative engagement. The author of multiple books and articles on strategic volunteer engagement, she is a popular speaker and trainer, known for her interactive and inspiring presentations. As a thought leader, Beth regularly participates in the national dialogue about volunteerism and engagement. Her consultations have included developing engagement strategies for Save the Children USA, Special Olympics Southern California, Best Friends Animal Society and Repair the World. As a Service Enterprise Trainer, she has also trained and supported dozens of organizations across the country to become certified Service Enterprises. Prior to becoming a consultant, Beth worked as an executive director and marketing director with education and faith-based organizations and spent years working with museums as an educator, manager and anthropologist. She still draws upon her anthropology experience, helping organizations through the culture shift process, from viewing volunteer management as a program to embracing engagement as a strategy to fulfill the mission. Beth has an undergraduate degree from Harvard University and also attended University of Washington for anthropology and museology.
