Visiting Rotarians and Guests are welcome to come and join us to hear Costa Englezos talk to our club on the topic of 'The Giver is the Getter'

Costa was a university lecturer for 38 years, teaching Accounting and Business Finance at Melbourne University, RMIT, La Trobe Graduate School of Management and a range of other universities.

At RMIT he ran weekend orientation camps for his students.  This led to the creation of an extensive student mentor program across the Business Faculty, culminating in the establishment of the SLAMs program Student Learning Advisor Mentors.

With a passionate desire to help students as whole people, and motivated to empower students to help others, Costa had 250 students involved as mentors in his final full-time year at RMIT.
