NED Network: Holding onto optimism during times of extreme pressure

The social housing landlords and society as a whole is under extreme and mounting pressure.  The agenda of Boards is increasing in both complexity and intensity as we grapple with the transformation needed to deliver greater tenant involvement, building and fire safety, Net Zero, development, digitisation and community impact. This all during a time when we face considerable workforce challenges, a Cost of Living crisis and the melting down of the NHS and social care.

Within this storm is the need for all Board and each NED to hold both optimism and hope for our organisations, communities and each other.  This session, led by Heather Thomas, Chair of Croydon Churches Housing Association and CEO of Sapphire Independent Housing, will explore how we hold onto optimism in the most challenging of times.
