Welcome to the Round Table Gauteng

In February 1927, the Duke of Windsor gave a speech saying:

The young business and professional men of this country must get together round the Table, ADOPT methods that have proved so sound in the past, ADAPT them to the changing needs of the time and, whenever possible, IMPROVE them”.

This gave life to the best young man’s organisation in the world – Round Table.

Round Table is a club designed for young men between 18 and 40 (45 in some countries) years old, irrespective of their religious beliefs or political opinions. Round Table is a closed club, though everybody can join through an invitation of one of the current members who will then became the sponsor of the new member.

Round Table is a voluntary non-political, non-denomination non-profit organisation (NPO).

Round Table is not a business club, it’s first of all a place to meet people, to exchange ideas with them and to develop fellowship. Round Table is an international organization, active on the 5 continents with approximately 30 000 members (2021).

These members meet regularly with the feeling to “meet an old friend for the first time.” The local clubs are usually called « Tables », where their members promote first friendship, then used to support local charities and charitable causes.

Round Table raises funds through either organizing various fund-raising events, or by offering time and energy to give a hand wherever it’s needed. As with any hobby, you certainly get out of it what you put in.

This personal commitment certainly also offers a wider experience: Round Table is used to involve families, where our kids can learn to spend time together, sharing our values and growing in similar aspects in life as the Tablers themselves do.

Aims and Objectives

These are the goals that we strive for together – to foster growth across all levels

  • To develop fellowship among young men through the medium of their professional and business occupations .
  • To emphasise the fact that one’s calling offers an excellent medium of service to the community.
  • To cultivate the highest ideals in business, professional and civic traditions.
  • To recognise the worthiness of all legitimate occupations and to dignify each his own by precept and example.
  • To foster responsible citizenship and loyalty to our country
  • To further the establishment of peace and goodwill in international relationships
  • To further the above objects by meetings, lectures, discussions and other activities.

Our Motto is Adopt, Adapt, Improve.

The Rondel

Where it comes from and what it means

Rondel

The first Round Table (NorwichEngland) adopted the proposal from Neville Headon from RT Manchester: a drawing inspired by a wooden disc which can still be admired in the Great Hall in Winchester (England).

In its centre, we can see the “Tudor’s rose” which was the emblems of the Tudors from 1450 on; just above we can see a king (which could be the King Arthur) with its sceptre.

As this original disc is more than 4 metres as diameter, it seems it was used as a Table. This is why the 2-colors-radius all around remembers that every seat around the Table is equal.

This logo was taken over by RT Britain and Ireland while chartering their national association in 1928. This general theme was then taken over by each new association. King Arthur and / or the central rose was replaced each time by a symbol that refers to the relevant national association.
