It is a new term. A new beginning.

Perhaps it is also a good time for us to ponder over some questions that we should be asking ourselves.

“Where Leaders Are Made”. What kind of leaders are we talking about?

“We build new clubs and support all clubs in achieving excellence”. Do we “create” (instead of build) new clubs just to make up the numbers to be Distinguished? Do we “support” clubs by paying their membership dues so that the clubs do not fold up in the current term?

We want to be a President’s Distinguished District that is built on a solid foundation. We need leaders who will do the right things and will do them right. We need leaders who uphold our core values of Integrity, Respect, Service and Excellence. We need leaders who put the benefits to our members as their top priority, instead of blindly chasing the numbers.

The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing, and our main thing is Integrity, Respect, Service and Excellence.

新的年度,新的开始,也是我们反省检讨的时候。

“培育领袖的摇篮”。我们要培育的是什么样的领袖?

“我们创办新分会,并支持和协助所有分会迈向卓越”。我们是否单纯为了达到《卓越区域》的数字目标而创立新分会?所谓的“支持和协助”,难道是代弱小分会缴交会费,让这些分会能够度过这一个年度不倒,下一个年度交给下一个年度的领导去收拾残局?

我们要达到《会长级卓越区域》的荣誉,但这个荣誉必须是建立在一个稳固的基础上的。我们需要的领导,是要能够以对的方式去做对的事情的领导。我们需要的领导,是能够捍卫我们的核心价值观,也就是正直,尊重,服务,卓越的领导。我们需要的领导,是以会员利益为最先考量的领导,而不是一昧盲目地追求数子目标。

让我们在新年度里,真正成为培育领袖的摇篮。

亲爱的讲演会同好:
新年快乐!

从昨天学习, 为今天生活, 寄望予明天–爱因斯坦

从我们收到的面簿及whatsapp的讯息中,各位肯定度过了一个愉悦的岁末假期。我们在应得的休假中,自我放松、充电、探讨新的途径及机会。
在与2016挥手道别之际,我们兴奋地迎接2017年的到来。缅怀过去,展望未来本来就是人之常情。让我们以感恩的情怀感谢在过去的一年我们获得的学习成果及所建立的深厚友情。 在这许多的福报中,我们最感恩的是与各位讲演会同好一起度过的充实日子。

虽然如此,我们依然有须要继续冲刺的地方。有6个分会尚未呈交10月份的会费。感到遗憾的是其中有几个分会决定关闭。这对本区域有着重大的影响。我们正在想法子缓和及挽救这个局面。尚未呈交会费的分会是:
