As part of the regional CPD programme organised by VPMA and SPVS, Royal Canin is offering three free places on two courses running next month.

Engaging content

“Video-making for social media” – which takes place in Preston, Lancashire on 17 May – is aimed at practice managers who want to learn how to create video content to use on their social media channels.

Attendees will learn how to use their mobile phones to create engaging videos and also discover script writing, voice-over, editing and soundtrack mixing techniques.

Nursing consultations

“The Consulting Nurse” CPD session will be held in Newbury, Berkshire on 24 May, where Brian Faulkner from The Colourful Consultancy and Clare Hemmings from Royal Canin will share top tips from vet consultation courses that have been tailored for nurses.

Content, design and marketing of nurse consultations will also be considered.

How to enter

To be in with a chance of receiving one of three free places on each course, email with the name of the course in the subject, followed by your details and why you would like to attend.

Entries will close 10 working days before the event.
