Introducing Barry Littlefair
Barry's was meant to be a small "life and times" on "Why I joined Rotary", but when the planned main speaker did not arrive Barry's turned out to be the main, indeed only, talk.

Got a Burning Question about Public Image?  Then, join us (virtually) for a Q&A Webinar and have your question answered. A panel of the public image coordinator team will be available to answer any questions you may have to do with how your Club can raise its public image, tell its Rotary stories, get its branding compliant, or maximise its impact through social media.
