In a sector where there is huge demand and massive under supply, this webinar will explore the potential unknown opportunities organisations may be sitting on to develop new retirement living schemes from existing stock and new sites.
We will provide insight into what modern retirement living now is and what it no longer needs to be, in design terms, planning terms, financial opportunities and partnerships, together with looking at trends and how you can simply make retirement housing both affordable and attractive.
Our panel will share their development experiences to help dispel the myths and to give clear guidance on where to start.

SHMA Talks: Leading five generations in business
Delivered online, Sarah Walker – Smith, CEO, Shakespeare Martineau
Date: 15 June 2021 - 4pm - 4:45pm
As the life expectancy and retirement age increases, so does the span of ages in the workplace.
With greater technology and fast-paced lives, it’s thought that priorities, mindset and cultural differences between generations are shifting quicker than ever. So, with workplaces likely to employ boomers through to Gen Z, how do you cater for the needs of different generations? Is it a reality that millennials need constant praise and feedback and that boomers will be resistant to change, or is this just a stereotype?
In this episode of SHMA Talks, our CEO Sarah Walker-Smith is in conversation with Henrietta Brealey – CEO of the Greater Birmingham Chamber of Commerce and Ninder Johal - CEO of Nachural Group, business leaders who manage, motivate and support teams of all ages, both older and younger than themselves. How do they do it and what is the best practice for managing a workforce of up to five generations?
This is a live event and there will be an opportunity for questions and answers on the day; if you wish, you may also forward your questions in advance to [email protected]Read more
