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.

The event

The 150-seat event is mix of drinks, dinner, networking and a speaker from the world of politics.

It also has a reputation for coinciding with a big political announcements – in 2016 the EU referendum fell on our event date, in 2017 the snap General Election and in 2018 a last minute replacement speaker saw a direct challenge to turn up the dial on EO.

In 2019, who knows what could happen! Speaker to be announced soon.

The date

This year the event will be held on Thursday 13th June 2019.

Our sponsors

We are delighted to announce that our dinner sponsor for the third year 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 seventh year by MyCSP, the leading employee owned civil service pensions administrator.
