I’ve been elected onto the RSA Fellowship!
The RSA is the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce, and being in the Fellowship basically means I get to use the letters FRSA after my name 😉
More importantly, it means I am part of a network that enriches society through ideas and action. I hugely align with the platform and ideas that the RSA cultivates, which all work to release human potential:
“Our mission is to create the conditions for the enlightened thinking and collaborative action needed to address today’s most pressing social challenges.
We serve this mission by acting as a global hub, by enabling millions of people to access the most creative ideas, by nurturing networks of innovators, and through researching, testing and sharing practical interventions.”
I’m thrilled to be a part of the RSA network, and I can’t wait to get stuck in…
