Keynote Presentation : Persuasive Presentation Skills
Michelle Bowden

Anyone who is proactive in managing the trajectory of their career understands the importance of learning, skill development and personal growth. It’s often said, ‘If you’re not learning, you’re probably not earning!’ You know that some of the skills you need to really excel in your current role have to be learned in a formal corporate training-style course, not everything can be provided by a book or online program. Persuasive Presentation Skills is one such subject matter.

How do we acheive innovation in housinglive from the UK
Ian Wright

In this session we will explore the world of innovation with a view from outside the social housing sector as we seek to understand how areas such as PropTech and Intelligent automation will disrupt the way we deliver services to tenants and residents.

With a focus on the problems the sector is seeking to solve across a range of housing related issues we will learn about Amazon’s innovation culture, it’s approach to failure and how it has managed the covid crisis. In addition, we will hear about how LEGOs innovation model nearly bankrupted it and the important role failure has to play in solving problems. With numerous practical examples this session will help you understand the future operating environment and ask better questions to solve challenges which are very different to what they were pre-covid’
