Dinner with new RSA President 

September 2012

To mark the opening of the newly refurbished Great Room, the RSA held a celebratory dinner attended by its new President, HRH The Princess Royal, on Monday 10 September.

The Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA) is a British multi-disciplinary institution, based in London. The Society was founded in 1754 and was granted a Royal Charter in 1847. Luminaries include Charles Dickens, Adam Smith, Benjamin Franklin, Karl Marx, William Hogarth, and John Diefenbaker, and RSA Medal winners include Nelson Mandela, Sir Frank Whittle, and Professor Stephen Hawking.

Ms Kristina Bobs joined The President’s lecture and an honorary dinner for selected RSA members. The dinner was in support of one of the RSA's flagship projects, RSA Transitions - a groundbreaking project, that takes a social enterprise approach to prisons.

The main speaker was introduced by HRH The Princess Royal, the new RSA President.

Dr Richard Florida is director of the Martin Prosperity Institute and Professor of Business and Creativity at the University of Toronto and NYU, senior editor of The Atlantic, and is the author of several influential global best sellers, including the award-winning 'The Rise of the Creative Class'.

He took as his theme "We are living in a time of "Great Reset" - when economic crisis provides an opportunity to rethink virtually every aspect of our lives - from how and where we live, to how we work, to how we invest"
