"Tessy - as always you are clarity and reason personified, thanks for this excellent summary. I have been wondering aloud for several days why there was nothing about this issue on the Fellowship Council site, all debate I saw was via emails or…"

"Thanks Judith. I think you are right. I do get a sense, that for those Councillors voted for through the Regional method, that there might be an implicit responsibility to communicate out and feed ideas in from the regions?
That said.... In the…"
"Thanks so much Jackie for taking the time to post these reflections from yourself, Jemima and Lopa. I know that you posted this originally on the London Networks site - but it is really helpful having it here too!
Your point about priorities and…"
Sorry, this is a bit late in the day to this ning (see the discussion I started on RSA Linked In on "why so many websites" for my excuses for not knowing what was going on here).Anyway ...I am posting this on behalf of Jemima Gibbons, Lopa Patel and myself. As the elected Council members for the London Region we all felt that we should try to report back to the region (so I have posted on the London City Networking ning) and add our views to the general fellowship discussion here.Jemima blogged…See More

Further my thoughts in response to Tessy it would be great to mix online and face to face in some way, if we can get a live event going it would be great to have a (face to face!) chat about the various ways in which this could be done and…"
You flatterer Jonathan! Shall do my best and if ever you want someone to run on a session on "Ning failure" or words to that effect, give me a shout. An excellent presentation on GoF was given at the London City networking session last night by the way, as you have no doubt heard!
Yes, I can see the problem, as Alan Lakein said, 'time is life, master your time and you master your life - waste your time and you waste your life'. Well, that's all well and good if you have the time, but since I know you don't I have had a think about some time-neutral things you (and anyone else) can do:
1. Display our Glory of Failure campaign logo on your site:
N.B. you can add the logo to your e-mail signature, share with friends and if you need to present something and it can be mentioned, do, and get in contact re the vector graphics version that can be blown up in full quality to the size of a zeppelin or beyond with no loss of quality.
We call this 'the measles campaign'!
2 You can sponsor us on the Fellowship Council, the London Region Committee and other groups you go, advocating for us actively or just dropping the name in when it suits
3 You can go into the Glory of Failure group, and then invite all your friends using the automatic 'add friends' tool in ning. Add a message saying how valuable you think this work is.
4 Encourage key people you might know who might do blogging, other social media activities like Twitter, etc. to promote the Glory of Failure work through their efforts to help raise the profile.
5 Anyone you meet or hear about who might be interested, send them my way and I'll find a role for them no matter how much time they have or whatever their field of interest or accomplishment.
Thanks Jackie - you are a power player within the RSA and your support means a lot to us on the ground,
As requested I have deleted (actually banned) your other profile so you should just have this one. It may take a while to work through. Any problems give me a call on 0797 0772439 but hopefully you are sorted.
Journalist and trend forecaster James Wallman explains why more and more of us are suffering from “stuffocation” – where instead of feeling enriched by the things we own, we are stifled and overwhelmed by them.
