The programme

All the sessions will seek to make sense of the operating environment and its implications from a smaller housing association perspective:

  • building an organisation your customers will love
  • the latest on housing policy from the CIH and regulatory developments from the Regulator of Social Housing
  • repeated breakout sessions mean you can choose two from four options:
    • what does robust risk management look like for smaller associations?
    • the benefits of implementing a values-driven culture
    • making satisfaction surveys fit for the future
    • diversity and growth

There will be ample opportunity to network with colleagues over lunch and at the break.

In the interests of open exchange and transparency, the event will operate in accordance with the Chatham House rule.


Clare Norton, CEO, Peter Bedford Housing Association
