Rules of engagement – effective communications for the housing sector

Effective communications are key to a successful housing organisation but, with shrinking budgets and fewer resources, life can be extremely challenging.

But don’t despair. New for 2017, HQN has created an event to help arm you with tools and insight to ensure your internal and external Comms get the right results.

Chaired by Social Media and Communications Specialist, Helen Reynolds, we have sessions to inspire and engage on the following key topics:

  • Social media: growing engagement and limiting risk – Which? Who? When?
  • Channel shifting: “going digital” – to print or not to print?
  • Does the media still matter? – What does PR look like for the modern housing sector?
  • Making the case for Comms – leveraging support from the top
  • Plain speaking – clear, concise messages.

The day will also provide plenty of opportunity to network with other housing Comms professionals facing similar challenges and some top speakers from inside and outside the housing sector.
