Rotary Means Business is a Fellowship Group that seeks to promote commercial trade and the exchange of business ideas among Rotarians
There is much to do in Rotary beyond weekly Rotary Meetings. In fact, there are many Fellowship groups but one, in particular, is of great interest to Rotarian professionals: Rotary Means Business. This Fellowship of businesspeople holds a monthly event in a different location, usually after 6 pm when working professionals can attend. The events allow every attendee to share a brief introduction about their business and how they can help their fellow Rotarians or their referrals.
Here are some basic essentials for attending a Rotary Means Business event in Central Florida:
- Bring plenty of business cards: Quite often there can be well over 100 attendees to these events.
- Have your elevator speech ready: Let people know who you are and what you do with 2-3 sentences.
- Dress professionally according to your industry: Show others you are ready to do business by showing your branded apparel.
- Smile and have eye contact: People enjoy doing business with other individuals who are approachable and happy to attend the event.
Rotary Means Business is often reserved for active Rotarians who are members of a local Rotary Club. However, Rotarians are encouraged to bring one guest as a way to introduce them to the joy of Rotary membership.
