Our hugely successful annual conference for staff, formally known as the ‘Tp Workers’ conference, is back and reinvigorated for a new era of engagement.
The Engaging Communities Conference will build upon all the great feeback from the past few years and apply our newly launched national engagement standards. Packed with expert speakers, interactive workshops and dynamic networking opportunities, delegates from across the country will explore how to improve their engagement performance, strengthen communities, deliver better value for money - and exceed regulatory expectations.
In uncertain times it pays to focus on certainties. And that is that tenant and community engagement – done well – helps organisations deliver better results.
Effective engagement really requires a team approach , particularly on this ever changing playing field. So this conference brings in experts, techniques and best practice from across and beyond our sector to deliver innovative ways of finding smarter solutions to improve services, save money and bring long lasting change to communities - for tenants, leaseholders, owner occupiers and community partners.
