The Big Conversation Scotland - 22 November


Moira Nisbet, Customer Liaison Officer at River Clyde Homes, talks about the Big Conversation event and what delegates can expect on the day.

Moira Nisbet

I am delighted that The Big Conversation is already gathering great interest and will take place at the Arches, Glasgow on 22nd November 2018. I am even more overwhelmed to be asked to be a part of the big day, this is going to be a challenging but enjoyable experience.

I have worked in the social housing sector for over 6 years now doing various front line roles. The skills I have learned through the years of studying housing qualifications have been invaluable and have helped keep my knowledge up to date. To me social housing is more than bricks and mortar; I am extremely passionate about improving lives and places. I help tenants achieve the impossible and even let a tenant log onto my phone to check their inbox on a dating website!

The network of people I have meet along the way has been very varied and all tell a different story. I have been able to share my knowledge and skills with others and have made friends for life.

People's positive comments made me realise that this is what I am going to do and what I am good at. This year has a fantastic year for me personally. I was part of the Final 10 of the Inside Housing “Rising Star” and a finalist for “Young Achiever” at this year’s Women in Housing awards and I am excited to see where my housing career takes me next.

Events like the Big Conversation are a great platform for all housing professionals from all levels to share their journeys, learn from each other and debate the issues that are important to them. So come join us on the 22nd November – see you there!
