EOA Regional Networks

The EOA Regional Networks are held quarterly across five regions in the UK: Scotland, North, Midlands, South East and South West.

These EOA facilitated meetings are an opportunity for members to hear from specialists within the field of employee ownership and take advantage of peer-to-peer learning.

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

The content of the meetings are relevant to organisations at all stages, whether exploring employee ownership or running an established employee owned business.

Anyone from our membership can attend the EOA Regional Network Meetings and our members are encouraged to promote the meetings to colleagues at all levels within the business and across regional area, so that they too can gain from this valuable opportunity.

What our members say about the Network Meetings:

“I made contacts with people who can help me understand more about being in an employee owned business.”

“Hearing what other businesses do to engage with employees has given me great ideas for our business.”

“There were some assumptions that all attendees were managers or above; our team included two of our warehouse staff.”

“It worked really well that you had different people there with different experiences as everyone was either happy to learn or share their knowledge.”
