Proudly Employee Owned

Sledge MD delivers session at Event Sustainability Live

Sledge MD, Sarah Yeats led a session on the topic of 'How employee ownership can enhance event companies' sustainability vision' at the inaugural Event Sustainability Live.

Taking place from 15th – 16th November at ExCeL London, the conference and exhibition featured a range of environmental focused sessions, roundtables and suppliers.

You can watch Sarah's presentation here, where she:

  • Delved into what prompted Sledge to shift to an Employee Owned Trust (EOT) model, which was namely to become a more sustainable business, and a recognition of the fact that bringing employees on this journey is vital.
  • Outlined the steps Sledge took to ensure a smooth transition to an EOT, so that attendees could gain insight into ways to make the change within their own organisations.
  • Reflected on how she and all employees have embedded the EOT throughout the agency over the last 12 months.
  • Shared how becoming employee owned has benefited Sledge’s people, the planet, and the agency’s wider operations.

Sarah also delved into the EOT and inspiration behind it further with Paul Harvey of M&IT Magazine on site at the event, and following her session here.
