Celebrating 20 Years Of WISH At CIH Brighton

On International Women's Day, WISH held it's now famous lunchtime networking event a Revolution during CIH Brighton.

With over 50 members and guests in attendance from across the sector, not only was it a great networking opportunity, but also an occasion to celebrate 20 years of WISH, with Nicola Dibb, Co-Founder and Executive Director of WISH, also celebrating with the WISH London team.

WISH was also delighted that CIH/Inside Housing also used our event to officially launch the Women In Housing awards 2018.  As a committed partner from when the awards started six years ago, we are so pleased to still be playing a part as the awards move into their next chapter with Ocean Media at the helm

We welcomed our guests speakers; Angela Lemon, Partner at calfordseaden; Marie-Clare Thom, Operations Director at Resourcing Group; and Jess McCabe, Features Editor at Inside Housing, part of the Ocean Media Group.

Of this years WIH awards, Jess said,

“They were launched six years ago and our intention is to build on these awards in the spirit of the great work that has already been done. We are here on International Women’s Day and this is a great way to celebrate the success and the great work people do in the sector.”

Nicola said of the event,

“The CIH drinks reception has become a regular feature in our members’ calendar, and this event was one of our most successful so far. It was great to meet with so many members and guests, especially on International Woman’s Day, launching WIH 2018 and in the year in which we celebrate 20 years of WISH.”

Thank you to everyone who attended, we have had excellent feedback, including this from Andrea Hilton, Partner at bptw architecture, who won the prize draw of a bottle of Champagne,

“I enjoy attending the WISH events, having been a member for several years.  It’s a great way to network in a welcoming and a relaxed business environment. The Brighton WISH event is always a highlight and this year it was a great way to round off the Conference.”

We would like to say a big thank you to our speakers and to our sponsors calfordseaden and Resourcing Group for all their support in making this event so successful.
