    Episode 1 - Projectize and Simplify

    Episode 1 - Projectize and Simplify

    What is a project, and what is project management? When we say “projects”, Rotarians may think of service projects. But projects exist in almost every area of Rotary. Good project management can push Rotary projects forward and, in turn, increase impact in the world.



    In this first episode, Rotarian Yemi Olaniyi talks about how he got involved in Rotary and how projects can be the key to a more significant global impact. Yemi’s advice is simple, “projectize and simplify.”

    Intro - Welcome to Rotary Project Manager

    Intro - Welcome to Rotary Project Manager

    When describing Rotarians or Rotaractors, we often hear changemakers, impact drivers, and community leaders. But how often would we hear them described as project managers? Leading and managing projects, in many respects, is what Rotarians and Rotaractors do most. We talk a lot about the outcomes of Rotary work but often forget to appreciate and share the work that got us there.

    Welcome to Rotary Project Manager. This podcast is not just for Rotarians and Rotaractors but anyone who wants to maximize their impact by managing projects more effectively from a volunteer organization perspective.

    We will explore some of the amazing work Rotary and Rotaract clubs are doing around the world, but specifically, we will look at how they do it. We will explore the highs and lows of managing projects and how we can all learn better ways to be changemakers.

    We will dive into the different skills, methodologies, and tools used by professional project managers. Hopefully, what you take away from this podcast are ways to be more impactful in the world, both in rotary and life.

    Thank you so much for listening to this intro episode. We really hope we can share with you something that will make a positive impact in the world.

    We do need your help! Please like, subscribe and share this podcast with your friends and family. We also want to know what you think or if you have any ideas for future episodes. Check out our website, rotarypm.ca, where you can find links to our social media channels and email addresses.

    And remember, Rotary is looking for change-makers like you. There are Rotary and Rotaract clubs all around the world in most major cities. Visit rotary.org and click on the “club finder” link to see the clubs in your area. If you are looking for a way to give back, Rotary can help.

    There is much more to come, so check back soon.

    Rotary around the world!
