As the Tour de France powers through the French countryside, SPVS is inviting vets to take on a more relaxed, less lycra-clad version of Provençal pedal power with this year’s Cyclescene CPD event.

Vets can combine CPD with cycling at this year’s event hosted by SPVS.

Taking place from September 13-19 in the Luberon Valley in Provence, the event combines 15 hours of non-clinical CPD with five days of scenic cycling.

The CPD will focus on staff performance and development as well as how to navigate employment law to manage under-performing employees.

Speakers include Brian Faulkner of VetPsych, who is a veterinary practice consultant and confidence coach, and James Cronin of Eight Legal, who is a veterinary employment law specialist.

Between them they will cover everything from learning how to feel comfortable and capable in command to having difficult conversations with clients or colleagues.

Delegates will also be able to enjoy non-led local excursions in self-forming groups round the Luberon valley. There is something for everyone ranging from the iconic Mont Ventoux climb to the laissez-faire café culture of the villages lining the valley.

The event costs £975 for SPVS members, which includes travel, six nights’ half board accommodation and 15 hours’ CPD. Places are limited to 30 participants.
