SAOS Conference 2018 is now open for booking

SAOS January Conference Will Explore ‘Opportunities for Value Through Collaboration’

The SAOS conference (Thursday 25th January 2018) will hear  from two professors with deep expertise on this topic:

  • Professor Daniel Côté, University of Montreal, will address ‘Co-creating Value Through Co-operation Strategy. Daniel participated in our 2005 conference and influenced the emphasis of our co-op development work.
  • Professor Jan Godsell,  of the University of Warwick will speak on ‘Designing Fairer Collaborative Supply Chains’, and will give her insights into successful supply chain design and fair value allocation.

As usual our day begins with two morning Knowledge Transfer forums, the 2018 topics are ‘Improving Co-op Communications’ and ‘Increasing Board Diversity’

We were oversubscribed for the conference last year so please book early to avoid disappointment! Further details and a booking form are available here:

This year, in addition to our ‘group booking’ discount rate (for four or more members/staff of the same co-op), we are also offering a limited number of free ‘Next Generation’ places for first time attendees, who are under 40 years of age, please contact for details.
