Trevor Smith Director of the GEM Programme
I work as adviser in the areas of cultural change management, organisational and personal development with a focus on leadership. I am also a Director of the Centre for Partnership, having jointly set up the organisation in partnership with Incommunities. I have previous experience as a senior lecturer at a university post graduate management centre. I also co-manage and facilitate The Board Room, a national networking group for Chairs of housing associations along with leading law firm, Trowers and Hamlins.
I also jointly developed the concept of the GEM Programme. My vision is to engage the passion, energy and talent that young people offer to enhance the chances of the housing sector in meeting the major challenges it faces long into the future.
I develop and deliver personal and leadership development for our GEM students, combining information based learning along with reflective and experiential based learning approaches, including psychometric assessment. It’s a thrill to be part of the team which brings out the best in our GEM students to help them flourish and have an influence upon the housing sector both nationally and internationally.
