5: Embrace Synergy between Rotarians & Toastmasters
Let’s explore the synergy and collaboration between Rotary and Toastmasters!
3:15pm – 4:15pm English session,
4:30pm – 5:30pm Chinese session
In May 2019, Rotary International and Toastmasters International entered into an exciting strategic alliance which allows both organizations to leverage their unique and similar strengths going forward. Rotary International and Toastmasters International are two international non-profit service organizations that possess more than a century of proud history of making positive impacts to the world dating back to1905.
While the two organizations share core values in Integrity, Respect diversity, Service and leadership, the two organizations are also unique in their own ways. Whereas Toastmasters International has unique focus and expertise in providing training to empower individuals to becoming more effective communicators and leaders, Rotary International is a service organization that offers opportunities for Rotarians in volunteering service to improve lives both locally and internationally, enhance business and professional connectivity underpinning live long friendships amongst its members.
This breakout session with audience of both Rotarians and Toastmasters aims at promoting understanding of Rotary and Toastmasters and the satisfactory of being their members. We are honored to have the presence of Mr. Wilson Yau, District Director of Toastmasters International District 89, South China including HK and Macau as expert panelist and together we shall explore the synergy and collaboration between Rotary and Toastmasters benefiting members of the two organizations in areas of training, services, personal development and membership opportunities.
Ample time will be devoted for discussion and exchange of ideas during this session. We value your wisdom and opinions in our efforts to open a new chapter in Rotary and Toastmasters collaboration.
