Steve on stage in 1AS giving a colleague briefing on our 2017 interim results

Yesterday, following the publication of our interim results, our CEO, Steve Murrells, gave his thoughts on the results and what’s important for our Co-op over the coming months to colleagues in the support centre.

Helping to understand more than just the numbers, here’s a summary of what he had to say:

  1. I have to say that Steve, bless him, isn’t a great podium presence. He was trying to be all free form and personal by wandering round the stage and not doing an obvious teleprompter/podium thing but it was a bit “meh”.

    I know the figures are pretty good but I wouldn’t have got that from Steve’s delivery.

    For example, this could have been a lot punchier:

    “Things get in the way sometimes but actually what you’ve
    enabled us to be able to say to the city, the market, our members is that actually the Co-op continues
    to be back;”

    If you’re going to to do transcripts please put the Q&A in as that was the most interesting part.

    Can we get the cocoa farmer back for the next one ? She was much more fun !
