Thank you to all who attended Congress!

Our theme for 2024 was Smarter Working – better outcomes: how you and your veterinary practice life can be transformed through consistent incremental gains.

Built to inspire everyone in the team, Congress 2024 set out with the aim to help ensure practices remain sustainable, profitable, happy and productive places to work. We hope our delegates returned to practice with the confidence and ability to work smarter and achieve better outcomes!

What did Congress 2024 offer?

Opened by triple-Olympian and marginal gains expert, Cath Bishop, our engaging non-clinical programme is a combination of lectures and interactive workshops providing in-practice case-studies, high-levels of audience participation and practical steps to implement on your return to practice.

Delivering on our Smarter Working – better outcomes theme, our programme will focuses on the following key areas:

  • Self-Development – better you
  • Team Dynamics – better relationships
  • Leadership skills – better direction
  • Business Management – better growth
  • Practice Management – better productivity
