Mergers: what do you need to know?
Are you a senior professional? Is your organisation considering a merger? Our upcoming executive briefing (4 August, London) is specially designed to answer your questions. Here are five reasons why you should attend…
1) You'll get to hear from a speaker with first-hand experience
Geeta Nanda - chief executive of Thames Valley Housing - has worked at the forefront of mergers and knows what she's talking about. Geeta's worked in our sector for 26 years and received an OBE for her services to social housing back in 2013. As the speaker for this event, Geeta will share her experiences and provide the As to your Qs.
2) You'll leave equipped with all the information you need to move forward
Whether you want to find out more about the cultural challenges of merging, how to keep workforce morale and engagement high, if a merger is right for your situation, or what's worked and what hasn't for other organisations around the sector, the briefing will provide the answers you're after.
3) You don't have to take time out of the working day in order to attend
We know you're busy and that every hour counts. Registration for the event is at 5pm and everything kicks off half an hour later, before wrapping up neatly for 7pm.
4) The event's free for CIH members
If you're one of our members, you're in luck - this briefing is free to attend. Not a member? Not to worry - you can come along for just £25 + VAT. Here's how
5) It's a great opportunity to network and debate with fellow senior professionals
To get the most from the event, make sure you come armed with questions to ask and ideas to share with other people from around our sector. There'll be chance to build a platform for debate and discussion, as well as to hear 'top tips' and examples of best practice.
