Webinar: Empowering Businesses From Within – The Road to Employee Ownership


Following the success of our earlier webinar with TheBusinessDesk.com, we recently ran a second webinar, this time aimed at businesses across the Midlands considering their own journey to an Employee Ownership Trust (EOT).

According to the Employee Ownership Association, employee-owned businesses are more productive, more innovative, and more resilient to economic turbulence.

With over 830 businesses in the UK currently employee-owned, and that number predicted to surpass 1,000 this year, our insightful webinar looks at the road to this increasingly popular route for businesses.

Our expert panel discuss the key considerations for businesses in the Midlands thinking of making the move, as well as the financial and legal implications.

The panellists discuss the range of benefits of entering an EOT, agreeing that creating and maintaining a legacy for your business is one of the biggest.

You’ll hear from two businesses that have been through the process, sharing their own experiences and the lessons they’ve learned, as well as expert tax, legal, and finance advisors.
