Social Housing Conference

Our first annual Social Housing Conference at the Sixways Stadium, Worcester on Tuesday 10 September 2019.
 
With the sector under mounting pressure to deliver a step change in the number of new affordable homes without sacrificing quality, we and our guest speakers will examine the strategies for achieving growth and the risks associated with them.

What we will cover 

The conference will examine popular strategies to achieve growth, the practical issues involved and the risks to be aware of. We will specifically cover.

  • How protected are housing providers from cyber attack? The results of our testing of the largest housing providers.
  • Mergers: do they enable the combined organisations to achieve more?
  • Mergers: how to structure these efficiently.
  • How do you manage tax differently in a larger housing organisation? The results of our survey.
  • How do you ensure a larger organisation does not stifle innovation?
  • How to protect yourself from fraud in a fast growing environment.
  • Managing the risks inherent in growth.

Guest speakers 

The conference will provide a great opportunity to mix with and hear from other social housing organisations from across the country.

We welcome Andrew Cowan from Devonshires, Simon Hatchman from recent merger PA, Andy Howarth from recent merger Platform, and Kathryn Price from Yarlington who is preparing for its proposed merger with Radian.
