WISH South West – Summer News


WISH SW’s first event of early summer was held in Bristol to coincide with the CIH Housing Conference. The venue was the excellent and historic Horts Pub in the city centre and around 30 ladies (plus a few brave men!) came along for lunch and networking. We on the SW committee have already decided to repeat this next year as it was such a success!

Gillian Wright, SW WISH Board Member and MD of Traico Ltd, ran an event in Southampton at the end of June entitled ‘Personal Effectiveness’ which was well attended and excellent feedback was received from attendees.

WISH SW will be running a series of events in the autumn along the theme of ‘The Future of Social Housing’ in Plymouth on the 21 September, Southampton on the 5 October and Weston super Mare on the 2 November and we already have a number of high profile speakers booked in at each venue – see our Events page for more information.

Finally for 2017, we are planning an event on Your Health & Wellbeing in Bristol on 7 December which will be combine advice on managing your own stress levels as well as those of your team, plus the pros and cons of flexible working arrangements and some practical relaxation/yoga techniques. This will then be followed by a social event afterwards to help you unwind even more!

For further information on our Events please see WISH SW Event Page and follow us #WISHSW.
