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 theworld of politics – this year’s speaker is still to be announced.

Please note: As you will most likely be aware, since the tragic events at Manchester Arena on Monday evening, security has been stepped up at many venues across the country, which includes at the Palace of Westminster where access is currently restricted. We do not anticipate that this will affect the Summer Dinner on June 8, but we are keeping close contact with the venue and will keep those who have booked tickets updated.

Previous speakers have included:

  • 2016 Mark Price, former Managing Director of Waitrose, and Minister of State for Trade and Investment in April 2016
  • 2015 Jesse Norman MP. Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Employee Ownership
  • 2014 Danny Alexander MP, Chief Secretary to the Treasury,
  • 2013 Sir Charlie Mayfield, Chair of the John Lewis Partnership
