Megan Robinson of Barratt will be speaking at RESI 2018

The pair act as technical co-ordinators for the housebuilder which earlier this month predicted it would post record year-end profits. The firm said pre-tax profit will rise to £835m, from £765.1m last year, ahead of its annual results on 5 September. The group added total completions were at their highest level in a decade, at 17,579 compared to 17,395 in 2017. At the event, which takes place the week after those results , the duo will take part in an ’ask the expert’ session on construction and delivery.

They will join recently-appointed housing minister Kit Malthouse, who last week was confirmed as the headline speaker for the event where he will deliver his first major public speech to the residential sector since his appointment.

RESI Convention 2018

The MP for North West Hampshire was appointed as the minister of state for housing earlier this month, replacing Dominic Raab who exited the role after six months to take up the position of secretary of state for exiting the European Union.

At the RESI Convention, which takes places from 12-14 September at Celtic Manor in Wales, Malthouse will deliver a political keynote address at 9:30am on 13 September. Former housing minister Alok Sharma spoke at last year’s RESI Convention and addressed key priorities set out for him by industry leaders in Property Week within his speech – watch highlights here.

The trio join a raft of high-profile speakers already confirmed for RESI Convention this September, including representatives from Homes England, the Housing Finance Institute, Greystar and The Collective, as well as London deputy mayor for housing James Murray.
