‘Rotaryman’ zooms in for an inspirational chat

This week we were thrilled to welcome Rotary Ambassador Evan Burrell to join our meeting and what a breath of fresh air he was. His enthusiasm for evolving what our President sometimes refers to as ‘Rotary v2.0’ was as engaging as it was refreshing. Evan’s key message was ‘Let’s have fun in Rotary’ and he has been walking this talk for years now. He presented an image of a new Rotary, one that’s a lighter and more engaging Rotary. He said we really do need to embrace and develop the fun and humorous side to our organisation. Metaphorically he believes clubs need to throw away the slippers and replace them with joggers. With numbers dropping off around the world and some even questioning the relevance of Rotary in 2020, Evan thinks we seriously need to all build a better mousetrap; otherwise, he said, “…in the years to come there’s a real risk of Rotary going the way of the dinosaurs”.
