District Weekend and Conference 2019

Inspirational Speakers

We have been inviting some interesting and inspirational speakers and the first to accept are:-

Rotarian Susanne Rea, who is a co-founder of the World’s Greatest Meal to End Polio. To date this has raised over £3 million which has been matched 2 to 1 by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Although Susanne is English she is a member of the Rotary Club of Cairns Sunrise in Australia. She spends many days travelling the world advocating for the eradication of Polio.

Honorary Rotarian Stephanie Woolard, holds the RI Responsible Business Award 2016 for her work. She began Seven Women at age 22 after meeting seven disabled women working in a tin shed in Kathmandu. These seven women were struggling to make a living in the face of harsh discrimination. With her last $200, Steph paid for trainers to teach the women how to produce products for sale locally and abroad – and Seven Women was born. To date over 5,000 women have been empowered.
