MUTUALS FOR REAL The Centre for Mutual and Employee owned Business at Kellogg College Oxford has joined forces with FPM (a specialist public services leadership consultancy) and Cliff Mills of Mutuo (the mutuals think tank) to develop a series of three cutting edge seminars.
Each seminar will provide you with:
•A new understanding of how mutual organisations are able to contribute to public provision - community benefit and multi-stakeholder models as well as employee owned businesses.
•An up to the minute summary of progress so far on the mutualisation - what services have taken the mutual route? How many? How long has it take? What has it cost? Success/failures and lessons learnt.
•An opportunity to think, reflect and work through the key questions that you need to answer to ensure the successful development of a new mutual.
•Where to go for support, advice and information - including how to approach the Cabinet Office Mutuals Support Fund.
For a full programme outline click here.
