2020 Virtual Employee Ownership Communication Committee Tune-Up

Whether you are starting (or restarting) your Culture Committee, or just looking to maximize the success of your current one, this program will provide you with best practices, dos and don’ts, as well as an opportunity to network with communication committees from your fellow employee-owned companies.  Attend for practical ideas to enhance your ownership culture and make your team more successful in 2020!

Note: This program has been cancelled - we are looking to reschedule a similar program at a later date.

Overview

Like you, we’ve been through any number of online programs, including our own, and are always trying new things to make them more interactive, and more valuable to you. We’ve strived to do this with the revamped 2020 Communication Committee Tune-Up.

Our goal was to make a program that was more than just another passive webinar - and have designed it to include individualized (and ongoing) support and instruction. We’ve also structured the pricing so that you can send your entire Communications team to the program at an affordable price.

Attendance is limited to first 10 companies that RSVP. Each company that registers will be able to send multiple people to the program, for example your entire Communications Committee. Log-in information for the online portions of the program will be sent out at least 48 hours prior to each event.

Cost to Attend:

$200 for Members of the OEOC’s Employee Owned Network
$395 for Non-Members
