CHIC Webinar Day

June 9 @ 12:00 PM 4:00 PM

A FREE special one day event hosted by BBC Home Editor Mark Easton


Although the main CHIC conference has been rescheduled until November, we still want to engage with our members, supply chain partners and other stakeholders in June so we are hosting a short webinar series on Wednesday 9th June, chaired by BBC Home Editor Mark Easton.

The programme is shown below, and we invite you to register for all 3 sessions. All webinars will hear from expert speakers and include a Q&A session chaired by Mark Easton.


Asset Management – Now Is the Time for Action

12.00pm – 1.00pm

Great asset management is now key to the sector’s customer service delivery. The profile of asset managers has risen significantly, with the necessary focus on Building Safety (and people safety) and the Housing White Paper.

This webinar will consider what is expected of the sector and how some social landlords are starting to respond.


Our Speakers Include:

  • Lucy Hutton, Head of Social Housing Safety, Decency and Climate Change at Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government
  • John Fisher, Managing Director, CHIC


Procurement Post-Brexit – What’s Changing?

1.30pm – 2.30pm

Brexit happened, trumped in the press by Covid-19. What effect has this had on supply chains and what can we expect to change in procurement?

We will hear from our members and supply chain partners about what the impact has been on project delivery and also what we can expect from the Government Green Paper Transforming Public Procurement. CHIC will explain how it is responding and its range of services to tackle the changing procurement landscape.


Our Speakers Include:

  • Jayne Bissell, Group Procurement Manager, Connexus
  • Martin Bull, Procurement Director, BuildBase
  • Mark Robinson, Partner, Trowers & Hamlins
  • Sam Domican, Head of Procurement, CHIC


Zero Carbon – So What Does It Really Mean?

3:00pm – 4:00pm

Social landlords’ homes need to be at a minimum EPC C by 2030 and net zero carbon by 2050. The sector has responded both quickly and positively to embracing this challenge. But do we really understand what the full implications are and know how we can achieve the 2050 target?

This webinar will consider a range of issues to understand what is being done and planned and explain how we need to become more informed and embrace new technology to reach this goal.


  • Andy Sutton, Director of Design & Innovation, Sero
  • Emma Harvey, Programme Director, Green Finance Institute
  • Sarah Scofield, Director of Customers and Communities, ADRA
  • Sarah Davey, Head of Development (BuildSmart), CHIC


Each webinar has been developed to suit the needs of CHIC members and is inspired by your feedback.  The webinars will last 1 hour so they can fit around your normal commitments.

All CHIC Webinars will be hosted via Zoom Webinars.
