PAST DISTRICT GOVERNORS
We were truly blessed with Malek Jandali’s story and musical gifts last week! I was inspired by his kindness, joy and willingness to use his life as a vehicle for peace. Malek shares his story in a Ted Talk and is worth watching and sharing. Go to https://malekjandali.com/malek-jandali-tedx-talk-g... If you enjoyed Malek’s creative way of sharing peace, check out the Ted Talk at https://www.ted.com/talks/richard_turere_a_peace_t....As Everyday Leaders we can all inspire peace by sharing a kind word and a smile, respecting and helping others and uniting those around us.
Let’s spread peace right here in Roswell. Please share Malek’s story of peace with others this week!
How many times have you heard “Let’s think outside the box”? Countless! In every enterprise, whether for profit, non-profit, religious or civic, leaders need to consider ways to engage more people and, ultimately, increase revenue to succeed in today’s world. While working at Arnall Golden Gregory, I met Andrew Dietz. He taught a bunch of us young lawyers how to be rainmakers—no easy task! Rainmaking in a law firm is one of the keys to success and the education I received set me on a path to partnership and then owning my own firm. Andrew is a master storyteller and the author of two great books. On Thursday, he will help us learn how to tell our story to open relationships that increase revenues. Join us on Thursday, because it works!
Thanks to our Rotascope team for the new template! The information is now based on the Roswell Rotary website, calendar and District database and should be up to date! We hope you like the updates!
Andrew is the co-founder of Creative Influence – a marketing firm that helps business-to-business companies grow more relationships and revenue. Before launching his firm in 2003, Andrew built a successful career in media and technology services marketing – serving in roles such as VP, Product Marketing for BellSouth.net, Partner with netWorth Ventures and as CEO of the early social media company, SideTalk. He is the author of two books - The Last Folk Hero: A Story of Race and Art, Power and Profit – and – The Opening Playbook: A Professionals Guide to Building Relationships That Grow Revenue. Andrew earned a BBA from University of Michigan and an MBA from Duke University.

Last week we not only heard Malek Jandali speak about his passion for his Pianos for Peace project but he actually played a beautiful tune on the colorful piano for us. His efforts to put pianos around towns in the most unsuspecting locations is proving that music can be a facilitator for peace.
