EVH Annual Conference & Exhibition 2018
26th - 28th October 2018 - The Fairmont, St Andrews
IT'S FOR GOOD
Our "It’s for Good" theme this year is multifaceted – worthy, virtuous, wonderful, but also permanent, forever, even unremitting? Very similar to the roles many of you play within your families, organisations and local communities. Our speakers and workshops will challenge your thinking about what is going well, what could be better and indeed how forever habits and ideas can be changed for good.
EVH are here for good and, in this our 40th Anniversary year, our flagship conference promises to be one to remember. We do hope you can join us!
One not to miss is our opening keynote speaker on Friday, Alice Thompson, co -founder of Social Bite – a national scale social enterprise café chain employing and feeding the homeless community. It has gone on to become a well-established social business going from 8 to 100 staff in 5 years. Alice is passionate about ending homelessness in Scotland using the Housing Firstprogram of which she is Social Bite’s resident guru.
We will be delighted to welcome our inspirational keynote speaker, Baroness Floella Benjamin, OBE DL. Many of you will know her from over 45 years appearing on stage, film, radio and television. Indeed her broadcasting work has been recognised with numerous awards, including an OBE, a Special Lifetime Achievement BAFTA Award and the JM Barrie Lifetime Award for her lasting cultural legacy.
The Conference is an excellent opportunity for housing professionals to network at our largest gathering of board/committee members and staff at every level, so if you only exhibit at one event a year—make it this one!
