A speech for Community Housing Cymru in November 2020
In March 2020 I was invited to speak at the Stronger Communities Conference organised by the New Local Government Network. We didn’t know then what dramatic change slay ahead – but we did know we were facing seismic change.
In December 2019 I spoke at the Engage Conference for universities. I wanted to address the role of universities in place – in shaping, making, supporting and engaging. And I wanted to make the point that this is mission critical, not an additional function.
