Effective Risk Management Strategy

Some Housing Associations have become complex organisations undertaking diverse activities such as outright sales, student accommodation, PFI transactions and care and support activities, and also working in partnership with others.

These (and restriction in rent chargeable in England ) and welfare changes across the UK have given rise to increased risk. Risks for instance to profitable segments of a Housing Association’s business if used to subsidise non-profitable segments.

Increased borrowing and liquidity difficulties may expose the housing sector to risks and ultimately threaten the viability of a Housing Association.

Effective risk management is required by all regulatory regimes in the UK in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. It is essential that board members understand how to do this

Diversification and Risk

In this webinar we look at what the risks are to an organisation if it wishes to diversify into new areas of business.

What should the board be aware of? How might an organisation approach diversification? What do the regulators say?

• What’s changing in 2016
• Understanding the cybersecurity problem
• GDPR compliance
• Managing the Risks
• What the Board needs to do

Effective Succession Planning and Board Skills

Getting the right skills on your board requires the right succession plan. In this webinar we talk about the skills needed today by boards; how boards can plan to make sure their team is diverse with the experience needed.

New Ways of Working

In this webinar we explore new ways of working; whether this is hot desking, home working and using digital technology. We look at how organisations are changing, what skills new ways of working require and the benfits to staff and customers and organisations as a whole. What do board members need to be aware of? What will the future hold with the speed of change in technology?

What Is The Change Management?

The importance of managing change in this fast changing world is not to be underestimated. Many organisations describe themselves as being in a state of “wobble” as they ask “how do we reshape ourselves?” Listen to this thought provoking webinar.
