In recognition to my commitment to innovation, cross-disciplined collaboration, excellence and community responsibility I have recently been appointed as a Fellow of the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (often referred to as the RSA). This is a proud achievement, so needless to say I am extremely happy by this recognition – so please excuse this self-congratulatory blog post.
However now that I have you here let me tell you that the mission of the RSA is to enrich society through ideas and action. As an organisation it believes that all human beings have creative capacities that, when understood and supported, can be mobilised to deliver a 21st century enlightenment. For more information about the RSA and the work it is doing visit www.rsa.org.uk
I look forward to working alongside my community of Fellows, both locally and nationally, to see how we can inspire social change and develop a deeper sense of community amongst us all. In particular I want to support projects that promote in people an entrepreneurial spirit in their creative pursuits. The wider aim being to promote greater personal and professional independence and through that empowering those individuals to in turn inspire and support their personal networks, and beyond.
