When our ShelterBox disaster response teams deploy around the world, they can be dropped into extreme and dangerous environments at a moment’s notice, in remote areas which may be difficult to access. In this session, you will learn and experience how to exercise situational leadership in high-stake environments.

Final exam

Ned Morris, of the Rotary Club of Walla Walla, Washington, USA

“That was the hardest part for me, knowing that we can’t help everyone.”

– Ned morris, Rotarian and ShelterBox Response Team Member

In the May edition of The Rotarian magazine, Rotary International was given unprecedented access to report on the three Rotarians who were invited to join the ShelterBox Response Team, where they were greeted by a no-nonsense trainer announcing “this is your final exam.”
