Lunchtime entertainment at Congress 2024

Congress News

New for Congress 2024, 25-27 January at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole: Informative and invigorating lunchtime sessions from Dave Nicol, VetX International and Behavioural Psychologist, Andy Edwards on understanding our differences and re-engaging our teams.

At Congress 2024 delegates will be given the opportunity to join hour-long lunchtime sessions on Thursday and Friday.   Over your two hour lunch break, you will be able to choose to catch up with friends and colleagues over a two course hot buffet lunch first, and then attend the session, or vice versa!

On Thursday join Dave Nicol, VetX International who will give you the ability to empower and energise your team . Veterinarians the world over are struggling with their career with many explanations being given as to why this is so; from gender bias to millennial work ethic to poor leadership.  Join Dave in this rousing session to understand what you can collectively do to re-engage and support your veterinary teams using six basic principles that can be applied to life in practice to boost happiness, wellbeing and performance.

We’re delighted to have Dave back at Congress after the fantastic feedback he received last year – a ‘phenomenal speaker – great content and advice.’ ‘His understanding of real vet life makes him interesting to listen to.’ ‘Never heard such an entertaining and engaging speaker.’

Friday’s lunchtime session “When relationships are built, improved or even repaired, EVERYTHING improves” will be run by Behavioural Psychologist Andy Edwards.  The real currency of business is not money – it’s relationships. Join Andy for this inspiring and motivational ‘Play Nicely Together’ session on using simple psychology to understand yourself and others, and the wonderful differences between us all.  By learning to identify, understand and appreciate the value in different personalities, you can adapt and connect to help you and your team become more happy, effective and efficient.
