Club News & Activities

Kenneth Carroll asked members to support the Rotary Culinary Ability Chefs for young persons, including those with disabilities, at Portlaoise College on Tuesday the 24th May at 7pm. Tickets at €20 for the event should be available from him. He asked us to support Riley and Saoirse from St Michaels Special School for the cook off. IP Delma Sweeney reported that she and Eamonn Allen had lunch with Ramesh Daswani, CEO of the charity Light of Life Trust and P Governor of Rotary District 3141 (Mumbai, India.)on the Saturday of Easter Weekend. He and his family were visiting their daughter who is studying at the Royal College of Surgeons. He gave us his club’s flag for passing on to RCD and a calendar and invited members of our club to Mumbai. Irena Ivanova, from the Rotary Club Kharkiv "New Level", told us how her family had arrived in Ireland one month ago, having left Karkiv following air attacks and bombs, no electricity and no internet. They took one week to reach the Ukraine border and had difficulty finding petrol and difficulty getting a doctor for their son. They travelled through Hungary, the Czech Republic and Germany. They decided to come to Ireland for their three children’s schooling and were accommodated in Bettystown, Co. Louth. The children are in school and safe. She thanked the Irish Government for faciliting their arrival and stay and David Booth for his welcome and for teaching them English. Richard Proctor, PP of the Rotary Club of Honolulu, exchanged banners with President Alexander.

Guest speaker

Lorcan Nyham, Head of Training at the Communications Clinic

Lorcan’s talk focussed on “the three Ps”, 1. The Person, 2. The Objective & 3. The Power of the Story. The first of these, the Person, asks us to reflect on, who is the person I am trying to reach and recommended that we work back from there. What are their expectations? What is their level of understanding?
In discussing the second P, the Objective, he recommended that we consider what we want people to remember. What is the key message that I want the audience to have received as a result of my presentation? It is a mistake to deliver too many messages, this results in talking not communicating. He gave the example of a radio station where the headline is “Don’t bore Orla”.
The third P, the Power of the Story, emphasises the need to tell a story, an anecdote, because this is what people remember. All major religions tell stories as a means to delivering messages.
Finally, Lorcan gave some advice about getting publicity and attracting new members. He recommended building relationships with local journalists and local papers with targeted messages for potential members you wish to attract.
