William Franklin to speak at the ESOP annual conference in Rome

William Franklin, partner at Pett Franklin, will be travelling to Rome on 5 June 2015 to speak at the Employee Share Ownership Centre (ESOP) 26th annual conference. The event, which also takes place on 6 June, provides an ideal forum to discuss the latest legal, regulatory and market trends in employee share schemes.

William, a Chartered Accountant and expert in this field, has been invited to speak at the event at the Residenza di Ripetta hotel. He will answer the question: Do share schemes contribute to the greater good or are they simply an elaborate mechanism to achieve wealth distribution rather than wealth creation?

William will take a fresh look at this topical debate, and offers advice on how companies can use employee share plans to plug the gap left by income declines in the UK. Other topics under discussion at the event include the proposed new Employee Ownership Trust (EOT), executive rewards and the role of employee share ownership in market economics.
