EOA Summer Dinner

The EOA Summer dinner is a member only event that provides a unique opportunity to network with other employee owned businesses in the impressive surroundings of the Members’ Dining Room at the Palace of Westminster.

Each year about 150 members gather to network and listen to a speaker from the world of politics.

We are pleased to confirm that this year’s EOA Summer Dinner at the Palace of Westminster will be held on the evening of Thursday 14th June 2018.

We are delighted to announce that our dinner sponsor for the second year running will be Mott MacDonald, the UK’s largest employee-owned global engineering, management and development consultancy. The company guides its clients through many of the planet’s most intricate challenges and has lead roles in high profile infrastructure and development projects around the world.

We are also pleased to confirm that pre-dinner drinks will be very kindly sponsored for the sixth year by MyCSP, the leading employee owned civil service pensions administrator.
