A Note to our Speakers:
Thanks so much for agreeing to speak to the Morning Star Rotary
Club. You honor us by accepting our invitation to share your
experiences, stories, insights and wisdom.
Our members are eager to learn from you, and we offer some
guidelines that other speakers have found effective:
∑ Keep the focus on HOW your topic touches people, why itís
important, and what we can do to participate/help/communicate in
some way about it. Speak to us from the heart and share why you are
passionate about the topic.
∑ Plan for a 15-minute presentation, followed by 5-10 minutes of
questions from the audience. You will find Morning Star to be very
engaging and curious. However, the amount of time may vary based on
other club business at the meeting, plus our Cardinal Rule of
adjourning promptly at 8:30 to allow our members to meet their
professional obligations of the day.
∑ Minimize organizational descriptions, other than how you're trying
to address the issue. Nothing kills a presentation faster than
company statistics and structure. And please, no political
campaigning or direct business solicitation.
∑ Speak to your host about any particular Audio/Visual needs at
least a week in advance of your presentation. A digital projector
and screen can be set up, but we normally do not provide a laptop
We trust youíll find your day at Rotary to be enjoyable and
