The Guardian’s social enterprise site is carrying on the usual tradition of newspapers at this time of year in running pieces looking back on the year just ending and forward to the year ahead. Among contributors offering their reflections on the way forward for coops in 2014 are Ed Mayo, head of Co-operatives UK, Peter Holbrook who leads Social Enterprise UK, and Vivian Woodell, Chief Executive of the Phone Coop. I was also asked to contribute my thoughts for this feature. If you want to read what we’re all saying, you’ll find the piece here. There is also of course the facility for you to leave your own comments.
