Event description

Description

Could your business benefit by being part of a thriving co-operative?

With the NDIS disrupting the care market place, the role of co-operatives in the new world of consumer led care now provides key opportunities for this sector.

If you are working in the disability services, health, or well-being sectors this is a unique opportunity to attend a forum designed to reveal the value creation potential of co-operatives. Presenters will also showcase successful care co-operatives in the UK and provide practical advice on how to design and run a co-operative here in Australia.

Co-operatives are based on "values" and "value propositions". They are based on fundamental principles that enable them to be governed by members. This goes to the heart of values. At the same time, co-ops enable a new kind of value proposition - whether for control and choice for the customer, for enabling better employee engagement, or to create a scale for the front and back end of the business.

The Forum Plenery will feature keynote presentations from international expert in care co-operateives and social enterprise, Guy Turnbull (UK), and CEO of the Business Council of Co-operatives and Mutuals, Melina Morrison (Sydney). The workshop will be facilitated by Guy Turnbull and Impact Strategist Designer, Suhit Anantula, of Business Models Inc.

Guy Turnbull Bio:

Guy has been embedded in the co-operative and social enterprise sector since 1988, and former full-time managing director of Care & Share Associates Limited (CASA) – an employee owned social enterprise he helped to found in 2004. Previously he worked across the UK as a social economy consultant, specialising in business planning, social franchising and replication, programme leadership, training, research and strategic planning.

His recent achievements include:
• Driving the growth of Care & Share Associates Limited, from start-up pioneering social franchise to £17m t/o employee owned social enterprise, weekly delivering 23,000 hours of domiciliary care across 9 territories in Northern England
• Creating ‘RED’ (Rapid Enterprise Development Workshops) - an innovative training approach to social enterprise development with people with disability.

In 2016 his work in the care sector was recognised by The Great British Care Awards where he became national winner in the ‘Outstanding Contribution To Social Care’ category. He was also the winning UK national finalist in EY’s prestigious global competition, ‘Entrepreneur Of The Year’. Here, the judges cited strong clarity of direction together with success in developing a highly innovative business model that meets not just customers’ demands but also those of CASA’s employees, as winning factors. In 2017, his work in shaping, guiding and championing the social enterprise movement was recognised by Social Enterprise UK, through the award of an Honorary Fellowship.


Gillian McFee Bio:

Gillian is known for being strategic and curious about exploring better ways to increase the productivity of public services. With a track record in senior executive and non-executive roles across the public and private sector, Gillian’s strengths are in co-designing and negotiating great strategy, then knowing how to execute it.

Gillian is an adviser to the Business Council of Co-operatives and Mutual (BCCM) chairing its Public Service Mutuals Task Force. Gillian also led the BCCM’s role on the staff engagement stage in forming the CYS Mutual for the South Australian Government and the NDIA.

After busy CEO and senior executive roles in Government and the non-Government sector, in 2011, Gillian has been running her own advisory and consulting business – developing a successful portfolio career including various board roles, mentoring and projects. She has learned what it means to work from the outside in!

Gillian’s deep experience in health and human services in both Government and non-government roles has enabled her to see different ways of delivering services in new consumer directed markets such as the NDIS, mental health and aged care.

Gillian discovered the power of member-ownership when she worked with the NRMA from 2011-2015. Gillian has since developed unique knowledge about how a particular form of mutual - where workers are the members, has been very successful in increasing the productivity of public services.
