Rotary Means Business Presents AN EVENING WITH THE HONOURABLE DR KEN MICHAEL AC -"Building Bridges In The Community" 
 
Rotary Means Business WA is pleased to present “An Evening with Dr Ken Michael AC; Former Governor of WA” on September 6th at the Duxton Hotel. With half a century of leadership experience under his belt, Ken will share his unique insight into cultivating long-lasting and effective relationships. A pillar of society, Ken is known for his tireless contribution to government, business, and community activity. Originally a bridge design engineer by profession, Ken’s ascendancy to the role of Governor was preceded by time as Commissioner of Main Roads, Chair of the East Perth Redevelopment Authority, member of the Economic Regulation Authority, and Chancellor of UWA. Ken’s commitment to community service includes being Chairman of the WA Museum, the Australian Defence Force Assistance Trust, Chairman and President of the West Australian Cricket Association. Ken has also been a member, Deputy Chairman of Council and ultimately President of the National Trust of WA as well as President of the Rotary Club of Perth, and Board Memberships of Hellenic Australian, Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Cancer Council of WA, and the Centre of Leadership and Management. Don’t miss this privilege of hearing Ken share years of gathered insight in conversation with our own John Garland AM
 
 
Rotary Means Business WA is a Fellowship of Rotary International. It is a vibrant, valuable and productive business Fellowship that enhances B2B and B2C commerce between and for Rotarians in business, and also provides an avenue to help strategically scale up members' good works at their Rotary Club. Its ethos is based on the principles of the Rotary Four Way Test which talks about honesty, fairness, friendship and benefit to all concerned.

Did you know that the majority of Rotarians join Rotary because a Rotarian invited them? 
 
Join DG Ineke and her team as we explore how you can share your unique Rotary story without getting tongue-tied or leaving out the invitation bit!
 
This will be an enjoyable afternoon where we will learn from each other as well as from others who do this very well. Come along if you have something to learn, something to share or a mix of the two!
 
It is all on Zoom, to ensure you can attend in the comfort of your own home and be ‘covid-safe’.  You are also welcome to get together with others and join in as a group. We will be finishing with a BYO sundowner. 
 
This is the first of our Adventure series this year. We are very excited to get started! See you there!

Mercedes College student, Isabella Marchesani, has won Rotary’s Year 10 District Final of the Four Way Test speaking contest. For her speech, Isabella chose the topic ‘Challenging Stereotypes’. Perth Modern School student Nibesh Khatri was the runner up with his topic ‘The Issue of High Expectation’. The selection panel consisted of Adjudicators from Rostrum, Toastmasters and Rotary. Seven students competed in the District Final having previously won at their Rotary Club heat level. Students are required to speak for six minutes on a topic of their choice and explain how the four values are important in their topic.
 
The Four Way Test values:
Is it the TRUTH?
Is it FAIR to all concerned?
Will it bring GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
 
All the candidates were impressive with topics that included ‘Neuro Divergent Diagnosis for Young Women’ and ‘Universal Basic Income’. The State Final takes place on 8 Sept, when two Year 6 students will precede the Year 10 Speaking Contest and also demonstrate their skill in the art of public speaking.
 
Pictured is contest winner, Isabella Marchesani, with Rotarian Fred Marsh who 36 years ago initiated the Four Way Test, and Nibesh Khatri.
