WISH London Summer Networking Reception


WISH London held their annual Summer Networking Reception on 6 July 2017 at the offices of JLL, who specialise in commercial real estate services and investment management, in Warwick Street, London. The event was very kindly sponsored by JLL and attended by over 100 WISH members and non-members.

Whilst the guests enjoyed the canapes and drinks, we heard from Richard Petty Lead Director – Residential Advisory at JLL. Richard spoke about the latest developments in the housing sector with a particular focus on regulatory requirements. We also heard from Nicola Dibb, co-founder of WISH who spoke about exciting plans for the ‘WISH Mentoring Programme” – to be piloted in the London region.  Nicola also updated us on the Women in Housing Conference and Awards and encouraged nominations from southern based WISH Organisations. Peju Fabunmi, a long time WISH member and supporter spoke passionately about the benefits of mentoring and, in particular, attending WISH events.  We heard first hand from one of her Mentees, Anusha Kamboj who described how she has now found her first paid work placement with Martin Arnold, thanks to an introduction made at a recent WISHLondon event.

The event was a great start to our new year’s events calendar. Feedback from the event included:

‘Excellent’, ‘Enjoyable’, ‘Beneficial’, ‘Successful’, ‘Welcoming’, ‘Relaxed’ and ‘Brilliant’.

WISH London Board would like to take this opportunity to thank our generous sponsors JLL, members, supporters and guests who attended the event. We look forward to a great year ahead.
