Garry McIntosh lead the members in a sharing and discussion of  some “good advice” with fellow Rotarians. There will be no bad ideas.

Best  Practice suggests that a particular way of doing something on an ongoing basis is superior to other methods. It has become a management buzz-word that implies a superiority and often firms advertise the fact that they have been 'best practice' certified. Having employees wearing a Standardized gas mask as opposed to sending in a canary into a potentially contaminated restricted area would constitute a best practice

 Good ideas can vary from something you have self discovered, read, or your mother told you. As an example. “Cover your mouth when you sneeze because….….”

Our goals at the meeting were two fold.

  1. Share some good ideas so that we all leave a little wiser
  2. Have some fun
