Event - Sir Donald Bradman and the Bradman Foundation

The Rotary Club of Glen Eira meets weekly with new and interesting guest speakers. We also discuss our current and upcoming service projects. Visitors are always welcome to attend. 

This week's guest speaker is Kevin Mooney.

With over 35 years experience at senior levels in banking, property and public speaking, Kevin Mooney brings an impressive list of credentials to the business world.

In addition to his business activities Kevin has been active in the not for profit sector. Following his retirement from the board of the Bradman Foundation, Kevin was made the first Honorary Life Member.

He has been fortunate to have mixed with many of Australia's leaders and it is their outstanding qualities which have rubbed off on Kevin and assisted him in his personal development.

Kevin is now launching his website offering a comprehensive range of services to business and the not for profit sector.

After a successful battle with cancer Kevin returns to the business world with recent impressive achievements. He has been appointed a non executive director of Watpac Limited and is the first non Queenslander appointed to Watpac's board since its inception in 1982.

He has also accepted an invitation to the board of Evolve, a leading organisation in the not for profit sector which looks after kids at risk in Victorian and Queensland.

These prestigious positions, together with Kevin's track record, enable him to offer his clients the very best of advice and service.

Whether you are looking for an experienced businessman or an accomplished speaker, you will be impressed with the expertise that Kevin has to offer your company, your staff and clients.

Kevin was recently invited by the management of the Monash University MBA programme to address its students and alumni group. The topic was Innovation in Business, Three Lessons Learnt from People I Have Met.
