Event description

Description

Ever wondered whether your business should become employee owned? As part of the Cornwall Chamber Festival of Business Week, Stephens Scown's employee ownership seminar will tell you everything you need to know.


With Richer Sounds and Aardman Animations making national headlines about their transition to employee ownership (EO), many businesses are wondering whether or not they should consider EO as a growth strategy, an exit opportunity or putting employees at the heart of the company. This session demystifies EO and looks at whether or not it is indeed an opportunity for any business in the South West. Topics to be covered include:

  • What does the EO sector look like now?
  • Is EO a better succession option than a trade sale or management buy out?
  • Can EO be used as a growth strategy – what has happened to other businesses?
  • Is it really possible to sell the company and pay no Capital Gains Tax?
  • How is EO implemented – how long does it take and how simple is it?

The session will be led by Christian Wilson a partner of Stephens Scown, specialising in employee ownership. Christian took the firm through its own EO transition and now works with businesses supporting them through their own EO journey. Christian is an active member of the Employee Ownership Association, contributed to the Ownership Inquiry on Employee Ownership and has been a member of the CBI’s working group on employee ownership and engagement.
