Luncheon meeting at the Fairmont Chateau Laurier, Laurier Room, August 27, 2010, 12:15 - 1:45.
We would like to invite all members to a ‘Meet Your Fellow Members’ session to be held at the Fairmont Chateau Laurier on August 27, 2010 at the regular meeting time. The format will be as follows. At each table there will be four presenters and four observers.
Session 1- Each presenter will have 2 minutes to present their business and deliver any handout/business card that they think would be helpful. There will be 10 minutes of open discussion. Session 1 will take place during the main course.
Session 2 - The presenters will move to another table and make their presentation. This will occur during the dessert. The observers will remain at their original table. The presenters will repeat their presentation. Two sessions will take approximately 40-45 minutes. If time permits, we might be able to get in a third session.
At the present time we know only that a member is employed/owner of a business but we have only a sketchy ideal of what the business or member does. There can be at least two results of a presentation. First, an observer or another presenter can use the services of a fellow member. Second, an observer or another presenter can act as a mentor to a fellow member. While Kiwanis is not, primarily, a business club, there is considerable benefit in knowing more about what our fellow members do for a living. We urge all members to attend and contribute to the discussion.
Based on a 6 table format we can accommodate 24 presenters. Those who wish to be presenters should let the Kiwanis office know by email by August 1, 2010. Come and join us!! Bernie Shinder
