Has Covid-19 changed your workplace?
Help may be at hand…
 
The once in a century Pandemic has changed many things in the workplace – working flexibly, virtual meetings and catch ups, increased autonomy, changed team dynamics and stricter workplace protocols to name some – but one thing that has remained constant is the need for strong leadership.
Leaders determine the success of any organisation. Good leaders attract and retain the best people, build an engaging culture, and determine a vision and direction for the future. With these in place, employees will achieve strong business results. In times of change, such as the Pandemic, strong leaders can help guide an organisation through a difficult period.
Want to learn more about Leadership? 
The Rotary Club of Doncaster will be running a 2-day residential leadership program called The Challenge to Lead on 12th - 13th May 2022. The interactive program is conducted by experienced professional facilitators and involves a pre-course assessment, essential leadership skills and a post course assessment.

We are particularly proud of Club Rotarian's Bruce Parker and Dr Frank Evans who were awarded an Order of Australia Medal (OAM) in the General Division.
 
Bruce for services to the community and the automotive industry, and Dr Frank for service to the international community of Timor Leste. Bruce was also a key contributor in Timor Leste.

Rotary continues on community radio ...
Community radio is deemed an "essential service" by our Government leaders during the COVID-19 lock down.
 
Some of our Club members continue to serve on 94.1 FM 3WBC and 96.5 Inner FM to provide some sense of normality to their listening audience.
 
Of course all the Government COVID-19 hygiene and distancing guidelines are being followed, and our members will continue their service in this area as long as it is safe to do so.
 
Pictured here is PDG Russell interviewing RAWCS Projects and Volunteers Manager, Mick Willis, and having fun, via video conference. 
 
Why not listen in and hear great stories of ordinary people doing extraordinary things, making a real difference, all interleaved with some great music. 
 
 
#WeAreRotary   #PeopleOfAction 
Dr Frank Evans OAM recently gave an overview of our Club's history since chartering in 1972.
