Paint your Picture of Southbank

Following on from the huge developments of the last couple of decades, Southbank Melbourne is now well known for its buildings, its fiery waterfront, its arts and its dining.

However for the residents who live here, the challenges of high rise apartment living, our walled communities, our transient population and our diverse range of people, the call for extra efforts to break down the barriers that prevent the Southbank community from truly engaging with each other have been heard and Rotary is joining with the community to do something about it.

Success Redefined - Larry Keslin - When Wants become needs

3rd February, 2015 - Guest Speaker: Larry Keslin from the USA

Popular wisdom accepts that people want to be a part of something bigger than themselves, to have a purpose that gives meaning to their lives.

Larry Kesslin takes popular wisdom a step further. Purpose, he says, is only the beginning.

Sharing your life’s purpose, connecting deeply with others—on a purpose level, not a surface level—is the key to unlocking the deepest joy in life.
