Broadcaster Clare Balding was present during the CVS conference annual awards ceremony in Birmingham.

The awards formed part of CVS’ annual two-day conference, with more than 400 staff from across the company attending this year’s “Growth and development” themed event.

CVS chief executive Simon Innes said: “Our annual conference brings together the future leaders of our business for two days of learning and bonding with their peers and colleagues from around the country.

“It is always a great experience as we celebrate progress made during the year and share our goals and plans for the year ahead.

“The level of engagement and commitment from delegates is inspirational and the feedback they give is both constructive and insightful. It spurs us on to greater heights next year.

“Our annual awards also gives us the opportunity to stand back from the day-to-day working environment and recognise some truly outstanding people within the business, who are making a vital contribution to its success.

“We congratulate all of this year’s worthy winners.”

Expert guest speakers at the conference included:

  • Pam Mosedale, veterinary advisor at the RCVS, who updated delegates on the new RCVS practice standards scheme.
  • Nick Royle, chief executive of RCVS Knowledge, who introduced the new evidence-based veterinary medicine portal “Veterinary Evidence”.
  • Diane James from Blue Cross, who discussed supporting clients during pet bereavement.
  • Rita Howson, chief executive of charity Support Dogs, for which CVS raised £39,000 during 2015.
