Saxton Bampfylde was delighted to attend the EOA annual conference in Birmingham on 21 November, the association’s largest ever with an impressive 630 delegates. Despite coming at the end of what has been a hugely tumultuous year politically and economically, people remained upbeat. Members were energised by the belief that the employee ownership model offered a strong solution to new and ongoing challenges around work force engagement, ethical business, innovation and long term success.
Saxton Bampfylde Trustee Andy King joined a panel exploring the roles and responsibility of the trustee and elected representative. He shared thoughts on Saxton Bampfylde’s experience of setting up our own governance structure and learning from the development of the trustee’s role over the last 2 years. The group was keen to exchange ideas on partner engagement and communication, defining the roles of the executive and trustee board and the successful transition to a new EOB structure.
