The Housing Forum holds monthly leadership forums to build influence at senior level across all organisations involved in the building and maintenance of homes.
During 2017, we undertook a series of high level examinations and reactions to measures to stimulate the housing supply and examine the industry’s approach.
Invitations are at CEO level and discussions follow Chatham House rules.
If you are interested in hosting a CEO Forum in London or one of the regional cities please contact Sandra Jordan.
