Rotary After Work: Evan Burrell, Scotch and Social

Evan is a 36 year old Rotarian and member of the Rotary Club of Turramurra in D9685 in Sydney, Australia. Evan has been a part of the Rotary family for 18 years, serving 12 of those years as an active Rotaractor.
Evan certainly gets around, at the 2014 Rotary convention in Sydney; you may have seen him walking around holding a long stick with his phone attached, taking hundreds of “Service Above Selfies” with convention attendees. Or you may have run into him immunizing children against polio in India, or worked alongside him across the district. Evan was even known for teaching the 2013-14 RI President Ron Burton how to dance to Korean singer Psy’s “Gangnam Style” a few years back. Evan proves that Rotary isn’t all business!

Evan’s message is “Let’s have fun in Rotary” and it’s with this message that has him passionately promoting Rotary’s digital story via his active social media presence. 

One of Evan’s great skills is that he uses social media to show that Rotarians are not only making a positive difference in the world, but they are having fun doing it! He presents Rotary in a lighter more personally engaging way, showing the more fun and humorous side to our organisation, He finds it grabs people’s attention, member and non-member alike. This makes the idea of Rotary more relatable, especially to new generations, who may feel disconnected with some of the formalities of Rotary but are avid users of social media. 

Evan is also the Digital Media Coordinator for the regional magazine Rotary Down Under as well as keeping himself busy managing his own digital consultancy start up, and building his career as a budding actor amongst many other things.
