In his third and final address as President of the Royal Geographical Society (with the Institute of British Geographers), Michael Palin reflects on what led him to become President and what he has learnt through this experience. He emphasises his hope that all will feel welcome at the Society and be inspired by its work. His comments are followed by a summary of the proceedings of the Royal Geographical Society (with the Institute of British Geographers) 2012 Annual General Meeting, including reflections on 2011 and the Society's next strategy, which builds on its work in policy, research and higher education, schools and outdoor learning, geography in the workplace, expeditions and informed travel, and engaging the public.
