EOA to contribute to Employee Ownership session at Co-op Congress

There’s just one month to go until Co-op Congress in Manchester, where the EOA will be leading a session on employee and worker ownership alongside Damon Horrill from Cornerstone Inns, Polly Robbins from Outlandish and Sandy Lindsay MBE from communications agency Tangerine.


With a theme of Building Co-operative Places, speakers at the event include Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham, the RSA, Co-op Group and bestselling author Oliver Bullough. There are workshops around leadership, brand identity and the innovative use of technology.

Deb Oxley CEO of the EOA said: “While the EO worker coops models differ, they both offer employees a voice and a stake in the business that they work.

“There is also a belief by both of our organisations that this leads to better business that can support a more inclusive economy and sharing of wealth and therefore we have a shared purpose to help grow this part of the economy.”
