The National Housing Federation has unveiled a star-studded guest speaker lineup for its annual conference and social housing exhibition.
John Lloyd - the man behind TV blockbusters such as Blackadder, QI and Have I Got News For You – will speak at the 17-19th September event in Birmingham.
Also appearing: neuroscientist and entrepreneur Beau Lotto and Housing Minister Kris Hopkins.
The five promising young leaders shortlisted from the 24housing Young Leaders Awards 2014 will also present their ideas on how to end the housing crisis, and a broad range of workshops will help delegates tailor the experience to meet their needs.
The conference, which is themed ‘Great ideas create change’, promises “some of the most exciting debate the housing sector has seen this year”.
Hot topics include: governance, social enterprise, private rented sector, devolution and localism, profit for purpose and welfare reform.
Federation chief executive David Orr will start the conference by offering his vision for housing and how the sector can work towards it.
Orr said: “The conference brings together a host of nationally acclaimed commentators and thinkers as well as introducing new talent in the form of the Young Leaders finalists. It is an opportunity to exchange opinions, skills and experience and to debate the housing landscape in a forum which aims to challenge and inspire.”
