Our key-note next Monday 22 July is our District 9920 Governor Gary Langford.  Gary is a chartered accountant and retired Fellow of the Institute of Secretaries and is a graduate of the Harvard Business School Advanced Management programme.  Recently retire as CEO of Eagle Technology Group Limited, Gary previously held senior leadership roles in public and government organisations.  Gary will be giving us insights into Rotary’s place and role in 2019.  And our 5-Minute speaker will be Sarah Haydon from Riding for the Disabled, who received funds from our Club earlier this year.
Earlier this month our Club member Elbert Angkiriwang attended the Rotary Youth Leadership Programme and he, along with other attendees sponsored by our Club, will speak about their experiences later this year.  At the end of the week-long live-in course, there is a celebratory dinner and as you can see from this photo, a great night was had by all.
No matter what stage of your career you are at, staying motivated, hungry for new ideas and inspired can be a challenge.  Hear from one of NZ's most successful businesswomen, Diane Foreman, as she digs into the nitty gritty about how perseverance, entrepreneurial spirit and maintaining a competitive edge in a crowded market led to the $80 million sale of Emerald Foods.  Coming from humble beginnings, Diane will share how she grew from being a high school dropout and struggling young single mum to being named 2009 NZ EY Entrepreneur of the Year and honoured by the Queen in 2012 for her services to business.  Join us for after work drinks and nibbles and take advantage of the opportunity to ask Diane your burning questions about being a woman in leadership.
