Digital Deal for Housing

Posted on January 25, 2012 at 9:58 1 Comment

Patrick Owen from CLG led an excellent cross Government meeting yesterday to further explore a framework for a digital deal for the housing sector. This chimes well with other leaders talking about a time for social innovation and modern finance solutions - and before you are all cynical about this, even I believe that some "deal" which means because the benefits are shared then the risks and costs should also be shared.

Are you still offering to talk for free to the boards of housing organisation about the opportunities of (and impact of) Digital by Default?
It is just we have a board meeting scheduled for the 29th June and we are about to embark on the purchase of a new IT system so now seems like it might be a good time to get the board thinking about on-line services.
The agenda for the day is not finalised yet and we would have to get the chairman of the board to agree to your visit, but if you are free it would be great if you could pencil the date in.

Hi Chris

Your invitation sounds great so thanks for getting in touch. Helen is on out of the country at the moment so in case she doesn't pick your comment up for a few days, I will pencil the date in her diary on her behalf and I'm sure Helen will be in touch with you very soon to discuss.

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.
