In the wake of last year’s hugely successful event, the Northern Housing Consortium are delighted to announce the second Digital Innovation in Housing conference taking place on Wednesday 4 July 2018 at the Renaissance Hotel in Manchester.

Programme Now Available

Digital transformation and adapting to new technology sits at the heart of any customer-facing organisation and housing providers are no different. As if to underline this, a recent survey by the Municipal Journal and BT found that 83% of respondents regarded digital transformation as among their top five high priorities within their organisation.

This event aims to draw from examples of those organisations:

  • using new technology such as voice-control systems and twenty-first century equipment to promote independent living
  • reinventing traditional paper-based tenancies for the digital age
  • using customer data to segment and customise services
  • data and IT security in the public sector
  • using technology to achieve flexible, more mobile and agile working
  • undertaking and planning multi-million pound overhauls of existing IT systems
  • working with partners to encourage digital take-up in their communities

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Ian Wardle, Group Chief Executive, Thirteen Group
  • Paul Warburton, Director of Operations, Your Housing Group
  • Steve Taylor, Care Technology Specialist, PA Consulting
  • Chris Walker, Head of Business Intelligence, Coast and Country Housing
  • Geoff Kirk, Service Director Business Systems, WDH
  • John Fisher, Chief Executive, Citizens Online
  • Louise McQuillan, Business Development Manager, TextHelp

We hope that you will join us for what will be a fascinating day of insights into how housing providers in the North of England and beyond are using the digital agenda to radically change the services they offer to their customers.
