Personal influence

In addition, an interactive seminar entitled “The influential vet” aims to help vets improve client relationships, increase personal influence and manage difficult situations.

Clare Turnbull, Boehringer’s equine brand and technical manager, said: “We know our customers like to feel fully equipped when dealing with recurrent airway obstruction, so are delighted to be able to bring up to date, high quality and innovative equine CPD to them.

“The influential vet” seminar will provide the soft skills that can help put this knowledge into practice. We hope our customers will leave feeling not just informed, but inspired too.”
