Public Speaking

Ownership Associates staff are popular speakers at company events and conferences. Ownership Associates can take responsibility for the entire event or simply provide a featured speaker -- we will provide a unique combination of outside expertise, concrete examples, and presentations designed to inspire, educate, and focus the workforce on success.

Our most popular presentations include: ESOP Basics, Ownership Risk / Ownership Reward, The Employee-Ownership Landscape, What Does It Mean To Be an Employee-Owner?, Introduction to Participative Decision Making, and The Rights and Responsibilities of Employee-Owners.

Ownership Associates also speaks at event targeted to a subset of the workforce, such as senior management retreats, workshops for middle managers and supervisors, and employee committees.

Whether your next event is a shareholders meeting, a company celebration, a state-of-the-company event or a kickoff for a new ownership plan, Ownership Associates gives you an inspiring professional speaker with the knowledge to address a wide range of topics and the ability to tailor the presentation to diverse audiences and styles.
