What's happening in the World
for Osborne Senior Corporate Team at Four Seasons Hotel, Surrey
10 July 2007
At this corporate awayaday, Richard Scase discussed some of the major demographic trends and how these are likely to affect the demand for housing and other infrastructure services. He gave particular attention to the increasing role of social housing and how this will need to respond to the changing expectations of tenants. He spoke of the need for housing associations to have 'spring board' as well as 'safety net' functions, and how this affects the nature of services provided. He concluded his discussion with some confidential inputs to the company's business strategy.
