Stars of BBC’s Your Home Made Perfect Julian McIntosh and Laura Jane Clark have been confirmed as the latest additions to Property Week’s stellar speaker line-up for this year’s RESI Convention, which takes place both online and at Celtic Manor in Wales on 8-9 September.
The architects, who on the show compete with other architects to pitch to remodel people’s homes, will be interviewed by RESI Convention host and BBC home editor Mark Easton.
The pair will reveal their insights into what people want from their homes and share observations about what’s wrong and right with current housing.
Your Home Made Perfect, now on its third series, has turned Clark (pictured), founder of Lamp Architects, into a household name. She studied at the Mackintosh School of Architecture and the Liverpool School of Architecture, qualifying in 2007, and specialises in new-builds, residential conversions and extensions.
McIntosh, director of Julian McIntosh Architects, is new to series three of the show. He has had his own practice for the past three years and has also worked at Greenway Architects and Penoyre & Prasad.
They join a line-up of speakers that includes keynote speakers David Partridge, British Property Federation president and chairman of Argent Related, and Kitty Ussher, chief economic adviser to Demos.
Other confirmed big-name speakers include Jason Honeyman, chief executive of Bellway; Jon Di-Stefano, chief executive of Telford Homes; Mandisa Khabo, technical development manager at Greystar; and Brian Lee, managing director of real estate at Common.
The theme of this year’s RESI Convention will be ‘The Age of Responsibility’, with the event focusing on issues that have risen up the agenda during the pandemic, such as the climate crisis. The two-day event will feature presentations, roundtable discussions and interviews as well as the return of the RESI dinner.
In-person tickets for the event are currently limited due to government restrictions. We recommend booking early to avoid disappointment. If you are not able to attend in person, online tickets are also available.
