63 – Talking Co-op Business with Interaction Designer Matthew Tyas

In this episode we get to speak with Interaction Designer at Co-op Digital and co-founder of ManchestersFinest.com, Matthew Tyas. We talk about the value of co-op businesses and the story of Co-operative Group Limited, one of the world’s largest consumer co-operatives, owned by millions of members.
