With the UK braced for a huge shift in workforce as millennials (born 1980-2000) outnumber retiring baby boomers in the next decade according to the Resolution Foundation, we look at what it takes to develop and retain future EO leaders – and recruit more.

You’ll hear lessons from future EO leaders about how they’re being supported and empowered to drive change? What’s important to them and what perhaps are some employers not paying enough attention to? And what was it that finally made them truly understand what being an employee owner actually means?

You’ll hear from:

  • Jake Hallatt, Sales Support Manager and former Employee Trustee at Gripple who joined the company aged 16, was just 18 when he was voted by colleagues to be one of the 38 elected representatives on the parent company’s employee representative body GLIDE.
  • Ailsa Roberts, Principal Engineer and former Employee Trustee at Useful Simple Trustequally passionate about making sure the younger generation are moving the employee-ownership sector forward.

You will have an opportunity to continue the conversation with our speakers in smaller networking groups and learn from fellow members on other topics unique to employee ownership.

With a diverse membership representing most sectors, sizes and locations across the UK, these Virtual Network Meetings are an opportunity to develop new contacts, discuss challenges and opportunities and share best practice and learning.

Registration on the day is from 10:55am, to allow a prompt 11am start.
