In this episode, I'm pleased to welcome Chris Budd back to the show.
Chris has come on today to talk about his new book. It's called The Eternal Business: How to transition a business for the employee ownership revolution.
When it comes this employee ownership revolution, Chris knows his onions, and that's because he's recently sold his own business, Ovation Finance, to an Employee Ownership Trust.
But the movement for employee ownership is global - and interest in this alternative succession route is growing fast.
Employee ownership is about more than the ownership, however. It's about creating a sustainable business. It's about creating an eternal business.
That means a focus on long-term sustainable profits; happy customers; happy employees.
In The Eternal Business, Chris lays out a valuable system for businesses no matter where in the world they are based. He shows how to get a business - and its employees - ready for this transition. And a model and pathway to follow so that it continues, maybe forever!
Here’s my conversation with Chris Budd, author of The Eternal Business, in episode 359 of Informed Choice Radio.
