Preston Council are doing 2 webinars under the title “The Preston Model Goes Digital”. The first one is called 10 Reasons Why Joining a Digital Coop is a No Brainer.
From the email:
o 90 minute session. o Three speakers (20 minute each plus 5 minutes Q&A after each one) o Facilitation provided by the PCDN o 1st session - what is a cooperative and why join one? We’d ask you [me -John] to provide an overview of what a cooperative is, and why it’s a ‘no brainer’ for digital professionals. If you could do this by sharing your own journey to cooperative membership, that would be great. Personal stories always work well. o 2nd session – the PDF’s story. This has local appeal plus provides an opportunity to introduce the technical support available in Preston for worker coop start-ups. This support is currently helping the PDF to get up and running. o 3rd session – the digital cooperative community – CoTech and the benefits of being part of a community of cooperatives. Can you suggest anyone in Cotech who would be willing to cover this angle? A women would be good for gender balance. o Final Q&A with all speakers.
Could this be you?
