The Veterinary Marketing Association (VMA) Finance for Marketers workshop will return this summer by popular demand.

The interactive workshop will introduce methods of creating budgets and show how they are used to monitor and improve financial performance.

Workshop attendees will learn how to produce, monitor and control budgets so their department achieves better results.

Attendees will also learn the contents and purpose of key financial statements and the meaning of finance terminology, so they can interact more effectively with the finance team.

Prestigious workshop

Course director for the workshop is Richard Staszkiewicz, a chartered accountant and regular lecturer at the Chartered Institute of Marketing.

VMA chairman Claire Edmunds said: “Richard is a qualified trainer who has delivered finance training to more than 8,000 people in the UK, Ireland, Russia and India, so we are delighted he has agreed to lead this prestigious workshop for the VMA.

“Understanding the financial side of the business is a great help in a marketing role. This interactive workshop introduces methods of creating budgets and shows how they are used to monitor and improve financial performance.”

Better performance

Ms Edmunds continued: “Organisations perform better when their non-financial managers take responsibility for the financial performance of their department, brand or service. Becoming proficient in these areas will aid success in a job, and could lead to further career opportunities.”

Chairing the event and providing the animal health industry context will be Graham Dick of KA Veterinary Services, former head of Bayer Animal Health UK and Ireland.

The event will take place on 14 June at the offices of Zoetis in Dorking, Surrey.

Delegate cost for VMA members is £250 plus VAT and for non-members, £350 plus VAT.
