Next Monday (4 October 2021) our speaker is our own Club member Barrie Brown, and his presentation will be on some of his career highlights, with a special emphasis on the Next Foundation.  Barrie was a partner in PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) for 25 years, where he was head of  Business Advisory Services.  Barrie has worked with a diverse range of medium sized and large businesses, and he retired from the firm in 2001.  Barrie has held Directorships in both public and private companies and is currently a Non-Executive Director of the Waterman Capital Investment Committee (Chairing Fund 1, 2 and 4).  Barrie is also a past Chair of the NEXT Foundation, a $100 million Philanthropic Fund, set up by Neal and Annette Plowman, past Chair of the Rotoroa Island Trust and Project Janszoon.  Barrie is an independent Trustee of the WA Stevenson Memorial Trust and a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Australia and New Zealand.  Barrie has been a Rotarian since 1973, which means he is coming up to his 50 years of membership! The following is the Zoom link for this meeting and Jacqui will open the zoom link at about 12.15pm for a 12.30pm start:
1 in 18 children die before their fifth birthday in Kiribati and three times more women die from cervical cancer in the Pacific than in Australia and every year.  ‘Give Every Child A Future’ will work with UNICEF to introduce three life-saving vaccines across nine Pacific Island countries; the Cook Islands, Kiribati, Nauru, Niue, Samoa, Tokelau, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu. The Asian Development Bank is financing the introduction of these vaccines into four of the countries (Vanuatu, Tonga, Samoa and Tuvalu), while Rotary will fund regional and other supporting activities in those four countries and fully fund the programme in the other five countries. Rotary and UNICEF are aiming to vaccinate 100,000 children over four years, but this is just the beginning. This project will help strengthen the Pacific’s broader health systems and ensure the sustainable delivery of these vaccines into the future.  Generations will continue to benefit from this project.  A truly inspiring Rotary legacy.  For more information about this life changing project and to make a donation and sign up for their newsletter, go to and "Like" our Facebook page to keep up to date on all the latest rotary give every child a future - Search Results | Facebook
