CEO Conversation with Jo Whitfield

Insights from a modern leader making a difference

September 17, 12:30 pm

Join us for a delicious lunch with a senior leader at the top of her game - Jo Whitfield, Chief Executive of Food for The Co-operative Group

Jo was promoted to the role after less than a year with the organisation and has devised and led a strategy that is delivering rapid, radical transformation of the business. Her innovation, drive and brave new vision has not only yielded exceptionally strong results but has helped form a newly motivated colleague group.

She is a modern, positive leader who puts tremendous value on employee job satisfaction and has instigated numerous changes to promote professional development, well-being, safety and support for colleagues.

In addition, Jo and her team have brought pace and innovation to commitments around sustainability - Co-op is the lowest producer of plastic out of all of the retailers, and Jo’s focus is to move away from plastic through technology and new ways of doing business.  

Outside of her executive role, she is an Ambassador for Girls Out Loud, a not-for-profit focusing on developing young female talent, and also for the networking programme, Women of the Future.

This is a unique opportunity to discover marketing insights and hear the stories behind a modern leader who's really making a difference.
