Emeritus Directors

Those of us who drink from the well need to remember those who dug it. RSA A+NZ has benefited greatly from the leadership of its past directors, and they have each made an outstanding contribution to the scope of the RSA's activities in Australia and New Zealand. Below is a list of past directors who have served on the RSA A+NZ Board:

Paul Vittles FRSA - RSA A+NZ Chairman (2008-2015)



RSA A+NZ would not be the force for social change it is today without the leadership and commitment of Paul Vittles FRSA. Paul served as Chairman of the Board from November 2008 to May 2015 and is largely responsible for transforming the RSA A+NZ into a fully-fledged and separate charitable entity, servicing RSA Fellows in the Asia-Pacific region. Paul has been a professional researcher and consultant for more than 25 years, and a practicing executive coach since 1997. Paul coaches senior executives, leadership teams, and business owners to help them set and achieve their goals. He writes and speaks on sustainable success, visioning, the dynamics of change, transitions and transformations. He is Director of The Vittles Organisation and was awarded Fellowship of the UK Market Research Society in 2001 for his pioneering work in public consultation and community engagement.
