The 2016 programme of one-day events also includes more courses “developed with the vet nurse in mind”, said the pet food manufacturer.

First impressions

The CPD series will commence in March with a trio of business and non-clinical training events.

  • “First and last impressions” in Milton Keynes on 2 March will, said Royal Canin, help practice owners and staff learn new techniques on maximising retail space, marketing messages clearly and leaving a lasting impression on clients.
  • On 15 March in Preston, veterinary accountant Mark Beaney will demonstrate how to drive management decisions to maximise profits and cash flow in the “Improving your bottom line” event. Andrew Curwen of XL vets will also help delegates identify ways to increase business efficiency through client service, communication and training.
  • Finally, in Newbury on 16 March, “Video-making for social media” will provide training for those with an interest in learning new digital skills or with responsibility for their practice website. The day-long workshop will include practical exercises covering script writing, voiceovers, editing and mixing soundtracks, filming a live interview and editing.

Places can be booked by telephoning 01453 872731 or by visiting the SPVS-VPMA events website.
