As activists for change, we are always keen to share knowledge and best practice on transformation and we run several free events and publish regular blogs to help the social housing sector develop capacity for effective change management. Our Breakfast Briefings have proved the most popular of these, with over 300 people and counting already benefiting from these bi-weekly, bite sized sessions. This has resulted in us gathering “Friends of Golden Marzipan” – a community of liked minded change agents and we’re delighted they both recognise and appreciate our service.

If you have missed any of our events, then head over to our Insights page to catch up on the hot topics we’ve already covered.
