Lunch:

 

Learning, Connection and Making a Difference: Ian Pollard

The guest speaker at Sydney Rotary Club’s luncheon on Tuesday 4th September will be Dr Ian Pollard, a business leader who has been Chairman, CEO or a Director of over 30 companies in a range of industries.


His varied portfolio of careers has included playing tennis for Australia, writing books, coaching executives and heading companies.

In 1971, Ian was captain of the Australian Junior Davis Cup team and the youngest member of the Davis Cup squad. A Rhodes Scholar and actuary by profession, his first job was at an investment bank, Development Finance Corporation where, he rose through the ranks to become its managing director and over time, began representing its long-term interests by sitting on the boards of the companies it invested in.

Ian has been author of a number of books. His last two "Investing in Your Life" (2009) and "Mental Spinach" (2017 and jointly with his daughter Jess) both focus on the big rewards from conscious investment into both human and social capital. The principles and toolkits behind both books are highly relevant for both individuals and organisations.

"Mental Spinach" is at the core of a social project which Ian and Jess are working on, through which all proceeds go to charitable causes focused on the education of disadvantaged young people.

Special Event:

 

Building Resilience - An Introduction to Mental Wellbeing & Suicide

You and your friends are invited to the launch of the Sydney Rotary Resilience Program on Thursday 13 September at 5:30pm for 6pm at the Wesley Convention Centre.


We all share the responsibility of preventing the unnecessary loss of life through suicide. In partnership with Sydney Rotary Resilience Program and families of those who have lost a loved one, the Rotary Club of Sydney will raise awareness and funds to support and nurture the development of a local suicide prevention network. Working together, we can make a difference to tackling suicide at the grassroots of our community.

Your support is needed to establish and develop the Sydney Rotary Resilience Program, a 12 month inner Sydney community suicide prevention program, by fundraising $70,000 to set up the program and additional funds for suicide prevention training.
