Description

Scottish Enterprise and Business Gateway Edinburgh will be hosting a ‘Selling your Business’ workshop exploring succession options including employee ownership on 19th February in Edinburgh.

Have you considered a succession plan for your business? It’s never too early to start thinking about your options. Employee ownership is fast becoming the preferred exit route for business owners.


Aimed at business owners considering an exit from their company, this session will give attendees the opportunity to hear leading map publisher Harvey Maps and specialist campervan convertor Jerba Campervans explain what they considered in choosing employee ownership and how things have worked.


“We wanted a succession solution which gave the company, the jobs and the brand a good chance of continued independent existence following our retirement; employee ownership ticked all of our boxes.” Susan Harvey, Harvey Maps


“Employee ownership is an excellent business model which benefits everyone. Catherine and I can continue with our day to day roles in the business for as long as we need to, with the knowledge that the future is taken care of, while our employees are given a stake in the business and a say in how it is run.” Simon Poole, Jerba Campervans


Andrew Harrison from Co-ownership Solutions, will talk through all ownership succession options before focussing on employee ownership and how to ensure the employee buyout is a smooth process.
