Speed Rotary – Rockstar Networking

Submitted by Rotarian Linda Baldwin

Who knows networking? Rotarians.  We displayed our prowess on May 30 with a fast round of Speed Rotary.

For the 2nd time this year, Rotarians spent five minutes each with five different Rotarians learning a little bit more about their lives.  Speed Rotary sped along, and those five-minute conversations seemed over in an instant. 

Overheard and tweeted…
“Old dogs can learn new tricks…when they are taught them by younger dogs.”

“Having your legacy go on after you are gone involves bringing in new blood.”

“Take your wife to your favorite places in the world before it’s too late.”    “LinkedIn has all these bells and whistles I could really use.”

“As a guest, I was totally impressed that Rotarians would take this time to get to know one another.”  
“Different generations talked today – someone asked me how old I was!”  

“People are job hunting….subtly.”  
“Caught up with some old friends.”  
“Made a return phone call in person.”  
“Met a techie who doesn’t tweet.”

Try it – tweeting that is, go to twitter.com, find #speedrotary and comment about today.  Then touch tweet.  

Rotarians – what an interesting bunch.

  1. Another fabulous Downtown Rotary event! Many thanks to our organizers.

  2. I loved last year’s first experiment with Rockstar Networking, but my job took me in other directions this week. While it’s nothing quite like being there, these wonderful photos and quotes sure captured the spirit of the sharing that occurred again yesterday. Thanks Linda, for this wonderful montage, and I look forward with great anticipation to next time.
