[Please note: John is currently on holiday with limited access to the internet - he's asked me to post his candidate's statement here on his behalf, in case Fellows have missed it on the main RSA website and as a way of introducing John to the discussions taking place here on the RSA Fellowship Social Network]

I'm a fairly new Fellow (please be gentle with me).
I want to take advantage of my newness before I forget what it feels like and suggest that there might be ways that new Fellows could be supported as part of the induction process. If the suggestions fall on fertile ground I'm happy to devote some time to helping that happen.
I was fortunate enough to attend an excellent New Fellows event a bit more than a week ago, which has coincided with me shifting from being a pretty…Continue

I had the great pleasure in attending the Big Jump yesterday at the Sage, Gateshead. Organised by Dr Jim TerKeurst FRSA, from the Institute of Digital Innovation at Teesside University, and his team this event explored the role of social enterprises within the Big Society context, and particularly in relation to the North East. The event was supported by RSA Catalyst, and demonstrated the impact that the Catalyst Fund can make in promoting relevant, important events.
