Social Network for RSA Fellows
Well done for taking the initiative to introduce yourself. I think it is probably stereotypical British reserve that explains why so few new Fellows do so, which makes it rather difficult to network effectively. Is there a lively community of Fellows in Vancouver or are you destined to connecting online?
A University peer of mine, Martin Lawrence, is a principal geoscientist with BC Hydro and a Director of the Canadian Association of Earthquake Engineering. I doubt if you would ever have come across him, but who knows - sometimes the world is smaller than we think!
If you feel like having a virtual coffee and chat via Skype any time, do let me know. You're about 8 hrs behind us, so I'm sure we could find a suitable opportunity.
Enjoy your Fellowship.

Greetings Robert, and welcome to the RSA. I am sure you will find it an enriching experience.
I've had a look at your site at The New Westminster College. It looks very interesting, and I am intrigued by the focus on ethics within your Distinguished Leadership program. I have two questions:
I would be happy to share some thoughts and exchange views. Please do let me know if a Skype call would be helpful.
Best wishes, Michael.
Hello Dr. Wilson,
Thank you for your welcoming reply.
Graham, I would enjoy communicating with any RSA Fellow in Vancouver, or anywhere. I do not know your University peer, Martin Lawrence, principal geoscientist with BC Hydro and Director of the Canadian Association of Earthquake Engineering. I am receptive to meeting him and look forward to speaking with both of you in the very near future. The world is indeed a very small place.
With best regards, I am,
Thank you for welcoming me to the RSA. It is always good to hear from a RSA Fellow.
I appreciate your comments on New Westminster College as well as your perceptive acknowledgement of our focus on ethics in our Distinguished Leadership Program. I will try to answer your questions below:
Answer to Question No.1: What differentiates New Westminster College is our orientation on leadership and inclusion of our executive students to our extensive global network of distinguished leaders. We believe that executive governance and performance, and the effective measurement thereof, have a direct correlation to leadership. Most business disciplines that are taught are specialties that play important roles within an organization. However, our conviction is that leadership plays the most important role and must therefore serve as the ethical foundation from which other business disciplines can be taught, learned and practiced. Knowledge of economics, finance, accounting, marketing, management or any other business discipline does not make you a leader. Leadership is the one discipline that drives all other business disciplines. So that is our foundational orientation and focus.
Our executive students are introduced to world leaders and gain access to them and their organizations. They leave our programmes with a portfolio of new distinguished leadership contacts that are committed to helping them continue their success when they return to their country, community and organization. Our global network and VIP speakers include billionaires, millionaires, world-famous CEOs and corporate leaders, prime ministers, presidents, government cabinet ministers, senators, governors, parliamentarians, generals and admirals, intelligence officials and experts, and prominent academic leaders.
Answer to Question No.2: Sustainable business strategy is a subcomponent of effective leadership and will be included in the curriculum of one of our upcoming leadership programmes.
Michael, I trust I have answered your questions. Your thoughts and exchange of ideas are certainly welcome. And again, thank you for your welcoming message.
With FRSA camaraderie and best regards, I am,
