Name: Neal Stirk

How long have you been a member? 4 and a half years (Time flys when you’re having fun)

Why did you join us? I initially joined to go to the training events and meet new people in Sheffield. I also wanted to work on my confidence as it was quite low at the time. 

What is the one thing you want to work on with JCI Sheffield? Leadership! I wouldn’t ever say I’m a natural leader but JCI gives me the chance to lead in a safe environment that its ok to make mistakes provided we learn from it. 

What is your proudest JCI Moment? Becoming local president around 7 months ago. JCI Sheffield has given me a lot opportunities that other organizations simply can’t. I’ve met people from all over the world, met people locally that I wouldn’t rub shoulders with normally and been trusted with 90 years history that proves what we do for our members works.  

How has JCI Sheffield helped you? JCI has given chances to push myself far beyond my comfort zone. Into leadership, into public speaking and to try things that I wouldn’t normally.

What would you say to anyone thinking of joining? Get involved with us! Talk to our members and hear there experiences and then see what we can do for you.
