11.00am-11.45pm  Able Futures – the best kept secret in Wales? / Able Futures – Sharon Jones, Operations Director

Did you know that Able Futures has been around for around 10 years providing support for staff (and working tenants) who maybe experiencing mental health issues that are affecting their work? They can provide confidential, free and specialist one to one support over a 9 month period.  Sharon will be explaining how Able Futures works and how the sector can get behind this.

11.45am   Coffee break

12.00pm   Rebecca Richards, Director, NHS Wales Finance Academy

Some of our feedback regarding future leaders has been that current managers and potential future leaders are lacking the skill, confidence or motivation to progress to higher levels within the sector. The NHS were experiencing similar problems with their Finance Directors. They decided to embark on a bold, all Wales, collaborative approach that has just been shortlisted for a CIPD Talent Management award. Hear from Rebecca how they have made a huge difference over the last 18 months with a small team and a relatively small budget.  What lessons can we take from this as we look to develop our own People Potential?

1.00pm     Lunch and Xmas networking activity

1.45 pm     CIH – Succession planning & professionalism in the sector / Matt Dicks, CIH Cymru Wales

The CIH has ambitious plans to professionalise the housing sector. It’s embarked on a consultation exercise to gather views on this. Hear form Matt and where CIH’s thoughts are and how and what can the sector do to get involved. Matt will also give an overview of a recent CIH survey on succession planning. It raises lots of questions for us – especially with regards to our branding and future skills and talent pipeline work.
