Name: Einer Herringe
State and Club number: SA, Club 26
Member Since: 1993
Since joining Rostrum I have retired from full-time employment. While I initially joined to gain confidence in delivering presentations to management and other stakeholders at work, I continue to benefit from my fortnightly meetings. Being able to think clearly and on my feet, especially with respect to short notice speeches, is always a useful skill to have. I believe practicing all the different speaking skills keeps me sharp and attentive.
And then there is the fun and fellowship... I think I will be among the very many Rostrum members that will stay in the organisation for life. A side to Rostrum which I have always particularly enjoyed is the fun our members have during meetings. Ours start early (7.30am to 8.30am) and after that one hour with my fellow speakers, I feel energised and ready to take on the world.
Hear a short 10-minute radio interview about “Rostrum Club 26 - the Early Morning Club for People who are Going Places”. Community Radio Station Coast FM 88.7 recently interviewed Club 26 member Helen Bowen and Membership Manager Bob Pearce about the benefits of joining Rostrum and the energy, fun and learning that can be found at a Rostrum Club 26 meeting.
