Speakers – Ieuan Isaac

Speakers’ Secretary Convenor’s Role

Our Speakers’ Secretary/Convenor is primarily responsible for selecting and inviting potential guest speakers and Rotarians to talk to our Rotary Club on a regular basis. We maintain a balanced approach with a diversity of speakers presenting a variety of subjects, including a good representation from charities demonstrating much inspiring work and worthwhile causes.

Our Speakers’ Secretary liaises also with other Convenors, coordinating mutually agreed dates for presentations with other events and meetings, comprising the likes of Club business meetings, Christmas events, Burns supper and other fun nights, whilst ensuring that the Schedule of Meetings is updated regularly on our website – www.rotaryclubofayr.org

We meet every Tuesday evenings at the Savoy Park Hotel, Racecourse Road, Ayr KA7 2UT, to hear a diverse array of informative, inspirational, passionate, and amusing speakers who are also present for the meal. Our meetings usually consist of members from all walks of life, including those who have experience in local businesses, various professions, guests of members, and guest speakers with their presentation as the highlight of the evening.

Generally, we aim for members, their guests and guest speaker to arrive between 5pm and 5.45pm to meet our members, set up any equipment before the meeting starts at 6pm with the meal, followed by the guest speaker’s presentation, with closure at around 7.30pm to 7.45pm. We provide a laptop, projector and screen for any power point or other presentation along with a sound system as and if required.

Attendance is optional, and we are mindful that members may not be able to attend on a regular basis due to personal commitments.

We also hold Rotary Breakfast Meetings on the first and third Thursdays of each month between 8am and 8.45am where members, with guests and other interested parties, are welcome to attend and join in on interesting chat /exchange of views on any matter, including topics of the time.

During the Rotarian year, approximately a third of our guest speakers represent various Charities, with the remaining two thirds entertaining us with a wide diversity of interesting subjects.

We have a diverse array of informative, inspirational, passionate, and amusing speakers, and enjoy fellowship, whilst utilising individual talents for the benefit of the Community. We are very flexible in all we do within this dynamic Club, where our calendar is packed with many guest speakers as described and viewed on our website.
