The Housing Sector in 2025 – what will it look like and how do we get there? @ Online

The Housing Sector in 2025 – what will it look like and how do we get there? @ Online

 

At the Housing Quality Network 2020n annual conference, Actionable Futurist Andrew Grill delivered the opening keynote titled: “The Housing Sector in 2025 – what will it look like and how do we get there?”

World-Renowned Actionable Futurist and former IBM Global Managing Partner Andrew Grill provided a view of how the housing sector needs to deliver more a more relevant and responsive level of customer service and embrace digital transformation to get there.

Just as we expect great customer service when we deal with multiple suppliers in our personal and commercial lives, so do our tenants and residents. As an industry we need to put the needs of the customer at the heart of everything we do and be responsive to their needs through the most appropriate channel.

As companies are now embracing a work from home culture, what does that mean for the housing sector? Andrew looked at the emerging trends and make predictions about how digital will totally transform our sector, with a move to more people living further away from populated centres, and corporates reducing their need for dense office space as a distributed workforce takes hold.

Andrew made some bold predictions for 2025 and provided practical, and Actionable tips to ensure you are ready to transform your technology, culture and customer experience.

As 2020 draws to a close, HQN is bringing together some of the country’s top thinkers, strategists, and agents of change to give the housing sector’s leaders a welcome tonic ahead of fresh challenges to come.

Actionable Futurist Andrew Grill, RSA Chief Executive Matthew Taylor and Resolution Foundation Director Lindsay Judge were among an outstanding line-up of speakers who shared their thoughts on the state of the nation and the wider world at the end of a year like no other.

Covering everything from coronavirus and Brexit to Black Lives Matter, the US election and domestic policy issues, our popular review of the year event gave senior housing professionals the opportunity to draw breath and take stock of everything that has happened while providing a roadmap for the future.

In addition to getting to grips with the day-to-day challenges posed by the pandemic, the social housing sector is facing significant legislative and regulatory changes that will fundamentally reform our relationship with residents and the way our properties are managed.

Central to this is the Social Housing White Paper which is expected to land in the final two weeks of November. This event was the perfect opportunity to get up to speed with the key recommendations.

Chaired by HQN Chief Executive Alistair McIntosh, key sessions included:

  • Understanding the big picture – the future of society
  • A renewed sense of purpose – the future role of housing organisations
  • Finding the leaders of tomorrow
  • Tackling inequality and the underlying causes of poverty
  • The workplace of the future
  • Delivering digital change through disruption
  • The Social Housing White Paper – rebalancing the landlord-resident relationship
  • Reflections on the Grenfell Inquiry.

About the event

As Private Equity activity continues to grow, this panel explores which industry trends will have the biggest impact on PE legal teams in 2021. 

During this session, our panellists from the UK & US will share their thoughts on how specific trends are influencing legal work within PE houses, along with challenges that are being faced by legal leaders.

Trends that will be discussed include:

  • Changes in strategy accelerated by the global pandemic
  • Increasing scrutiny from LPs
  • The rise of cost control measures in PE houses
  • Digitization and its role in strategic decision making
  • How ESG will shape decisions made within legal departments 
  • How will issues such as cyber security impact the deal process and where does the legal department fit in?

The in-house lawyer of the future is going to be so much more than a sharp legal mind. They will need to be commercially-focused strategic partners, tech-savvy innovators, and the fulcrum on which the business rests.

The legal tech revolution helps lawyers identify and exploit opportunities. ALX London will prepare them for changing perceptions of how in-house teams bring value to their business.

General Counsels will be the core component in managing business stakeholders, relationships, and external law firms, and will ensure their businesses run efficiently and continue to grow.

ALX London is about equipping the lawyer of tomorrow with the skills they need to adapt to the changing legal landscape.

The expo is designed for General Counsels, Heads of Legal, Legal Operations Managers and other senior decision-makers within in-house legal departments.
