Big Co-op Conversations #2 - The John Lewis Partnership

An evening with Peter Cox, talking about the John Lewis Partnership and Waitrose

In 2012 - we will team up with industry partners to offer a series of talks on co-op and mutual business. Our first 'Big Co-op Conversation' was In From the Cold: Co-ops and Mutuals in the National Interest part of the ALP National Conference Fringe Program. 

If you are in Melbourne on 24 January 2012, you have the chance to hear about the fascinating history of the John Lewis department stores and Waitrose supermarkets. With no public equity, the UK retail giant distributes all residuals profits to its employees - called Partners - the annual bonuses paid to employees over the last 50 years has been 16%.

When:  Tuesday, 24 January 2012, 5:15pm for a 5:30pm start

Where: Level 42, 101 Collins Street, Melbourne Vic 3000

"...because a lot of profit made from human effort is vanishing out of the local community where it is generated, we are becoming acutely aware that we need to join hands and protect each other by striving together to the benefit of our neighbours as well as our own family. We need to co-operate with each other - Bravo the co-operatives amongst you."
