Forestdale Suite Ground
Presentation of further District competition results
Telling ain't selling - as clubs we complain how difficult it is to get the public's interest when we have membership drives in shopping malls, country fairs, galas etc. During this workshop we will look at how, without making drastic changes to our approach or what we say, we can better our chances of gaining the person's interest and possibly gaining a new member by using the penny card and other approaches.
Lions Keith and Michelle from District 105C not only run a Learning and Development company but have vast experience of exhibitions both here and overseas where one is competing with hundreds of others for the customers attention
