We have secured an exciting line up of high profile speakers to engage, inspire and challenge you as we continue on our journey to ensure good housing is a basic right for all in Wales.

Highlights include:

  • Nick Watt, Political Editor of BBC Newsnight

Nick Watt has worked in national journalism for nearly 30 years, and likes to joke that the downfall of Margaret Thatcher marked his debut in political journalism. As the political editor of BBC Newsnight, he has unrivalled expertise on Brexit and the current political outlook across the UK.

With the UK set to leave the European Union on 31st October, our Annual Conference will come at a time of unprecedented political turmoil in the UK. Find out what it means for housing in Wales.

  • Grace Blakeley, Economics Commentator at the New Statesman

What next for the UK economy?
As the New Statesman’s Economic Commentator and a Research Fellow on the IPPR’s Commission on Economic Justice, Grace has been a regular on broadcast media channels across the UK, discussing the future of the UK economy. She specialises in international economics and macro-economic policy, with a particular focus on financial regulation, regional economics and housing. Her first book – Stolen: How to save the world from financialisation will be published this September.

  • Minister for Housing and Local Government, Julie James AM

After almost a year in the post, the Minister will reflect on her time in the post and the huge amount of work that is ongoing following the Independent Review of Affordable Housing Supply.

  • David Olusoga, Historian and Presenter of BBC’s A House Through Time

David Olusoga is a British-Nigerian historian, broadcaster and film-maker. An award-winning presenter and documentary maker, he is also regular a writer for The Guardian and The Observer and has written for The Nation and BBC History Magazine.

In his BBC series A House Through Time, David charts British history as lived by the successive inhabitants of a single home in a British city. As we look to the future of housing in Wales, David will ask what lessons we can learn from history.
