katewhittleKate is an experienced co-operative developer, with interests in co-operative skills and transport. She is the society Secretary at GO-OP Co-operative, which recently reached a crossroads in its journey to become Britain’s first co-operative rail operating company.

This year Kate has been busy updating the From Conflict to Co-operation series of booklets – which now include a section on strategic planning in worker co-ops, to be published online by Co-opsUK Spring 2016. She has also been providing support with strategic planning, HR, induction and meetings training for Bristol-based worker co-op Essential Trading
