Robert Oakeshott Lecture 2023

We are delighted that our 2023 annual Robert Oakeshott Lecture will be delivered by the formidable Kate Raworth, renegade economist and founder of the Doughnut Economics Action Lab.

The EOA’s annual lecture commemorates and celebrates the life, legacy, and work of its founder, and employee ownership pioneer, Robert Oakeshott.


“I’m delighted and honoured to be giving the 10th annual Robert Oakeshott Lecture because redesigning business is a crucial and exciting 21st century challenge – and employee-owned companies are so well positioned to be among the innovators and leaders that the world of business needs right now.” Kate Raworth, Economist

About the event

This year’s lecture will explore ‘Redesigning business with Doughnut Economics’, building on one of the highest rated sessions at the October 2022 EOA Conference – ‘Thriving through purpose: a framework to embed ecological and social goals delivered’ by Erinch Sahan, Business and Enterprise Lead,at the Doughnut Economics Action Lab.

The event will begin with refreshments and registration from 2pm, and close with a short networking drinks reception until 5pm.

This year’s lecture is made possible by sponsorship from EOA Supporter Member Brabners LLP. We are also very grateful to the support of Bayes Business School, who will be hosting the lecture once again at their London campus.

“Employee ownership has an increasingly key role to play in helping to address the new challenges for business and society as we move through the 21st century – be that inequality, personal wellbeing or indeed the environmental crisis. We look forward to Kate Raworth’s candid exploration of these and other themes in this year’s Robert Oakeshott Lecture, a keystone event in the EOA calendar, which Brabners is proud to support.” Stephen Hadlow, Partner, Brabners
