About Club 18

Rostrum Club 18 meets over an evening meal at the Metropolitan Hotel, Adelaide, every first and third Wednesday of the month. Having a meal together makes for a friendly and more relaxed atmosphere. In this comfortable company, learning new skills is highly enjoyable, and it’s easy to gain in confidence.

Our programmes are varied and entertaining, reflecting the wishes and interests of members and include speeches of all types and role-play. A senior Rostrum member, the Coach, provides us with supportive and constructive advice.

We range in age from young professionals to retirees. Our interests are as varied as our backgrounds, which include the Public Service, small business, trades, teaching, the Police, and universities (studying, researching and lecturing).

A special offer for new members of Club 18

Long-term member and former Speaker of the Year, Patrick Bourke, a retired University Lecturer who taught Communication Skills to Management Students and a Member qualified in workforce training in public speaking (Certificate IV) will offer new members who have been elected and have paid their subscriptions five weeks free, personal tuition in public speaking and/or meeting  management.

We not only learn to communicate and manage meetings more effectively; we also learn a great deal from each other about the world and humanity.

Club subscription fees are $50 every six months (full-time student members $25). Everyone attending a meeting is expected to buy a meal, which costs about $20.

Visitors are welcome at every meeting.
