Ieuan Evans



Associate Director - Communications (Engagement)


Members and volunteers contribute enormously to the work of the BTO and, our ambition is to continue to provide as personal a service as possible to all of our supporters as we grow as an organisation. I work with a small team of staff and a large network of volunteer regional representatives to recruit and engage with members and volunteers across the UK. Staff within the M & V team deliver training courses, Members magazine & newsletters, regional and national conferences, attend local and national events and contribute to the BTO e-newsletter and websites. Volunteer Regional representatives do many of the same things in addition to managing volunteers in their respective regions.


BSc (Hons), PhD. I acquired most of the skills I use in this role during a spell managing an Eco-tourism company in the Highlands of Scotland and delivering RSPB’s Corporate Induction programme at the Lodge in Sandy.


I’m interested in people – how and why they join or engage as volunteers and how they progress during their engagement with us. A major part of this process is driven by data collection and analysis to help us better understand the motivations of our supporters. If you have any questions or comments about your experiences as a BTO member/volunteer I’d be very pleased to hear from you.
