ESOP Summer School 20: Michael Keeling & The ESOP Association

Welcome to our third annual EO/ESOP Podcast Summer School series. We've selected some of our favorite episodes over the past year to bring you all summer long. We're going to spend the summer catching our breath and recharging our batteries. We're also going to be wearing masks and practicing social distancing.

In this episode, we share our conversation at the March 2nd, 2018 ESOP Professionals' Forum in New Orleans, LA with Michael Keeling, then-President and Chief Staff Officer of The ESOP Association. We learn how many pieces of the bigger picture came together to bring Michael Keeling into the employee ownership community, and what makes ESOP organizations special. He has visited over 573 ESOP companies and has great stories to share from his visits.

You can connect with Michael Keeling on his website:
