HQN Event – The Leadership in Housing Conference 2019

Empower your people, help your teams achieve more, shape your culture.


Outstanding leadership has never been more important in the social housing sector.

Modern housing organisations are complex. They are expected to act commercially while maintaining their social purpose.

Building new homes, maintaining existing stock and a relentless focus on health and safety are a few of the obvious challenges facing our sector.

But the need for dynamic leaders becomes even more apparent when you add to this a constantly changing operating environment, an uncertain political landscape and the need to do more to support both residents and communities.

And it’s not just your executive team that has a role to play. By harnessing the leadership skills of your people, the mindsets of your teams and the culture of your organisation, you’ll reduce risk, cost, complexity and uncertainty. You’ll generate clarity, sustainability and higher performance.

For this major one-day conference, HQN is teaming up with the Leadership Trust to bring together some of the UK’s most inspirational leaders from inside and outside the housing sector to explore a number of key themes:

  • The art of leadership within the housing sector
  • Management, leadership and command
  • Performance under pressure
  • Ethos and culture
  • Adopting positive leadership behaviours
  • Resilience and team motivation
  • Building a culture of wellbeing
  • Developing future leaders.

Chaired by HQN chief executive Alistair McIntosh, delegates will have the chance to hear from a host of top speakers including:

  • Major General Tim Cross CBE
  • Jon White, former Royal Marine, leadership consultant and inspirational speaker
  • Kate Davies, Chief Executive, Notting Hill Genesis
  • Molly Bishop, former National Housing Federation/24housing Young Leader of the Year
  • Robin Lawrence, Course Director, Leadership Trust
  • Dr Gonzalo Shoobridge and Sara Silvonen, Great Place to Work
  • Jane Atherton, HQN associate and Organisation Development expert.

More speakers to be announced shortly.
