The Veterinary Practice Management Association president Rebekka Fiorani has thanked sponsors who have signed up to support VPMA Congress 2011.
She said: “Without the help of our sponsors it would not be possible to offer the cost effective, high quality practice management CPD VPMA Congress provides and this year we want to be bigger and better.
“In 2011 the support of our sponsors will allow us to ring the changes, offering a wider choice of topics that appeal to those setting up in practice or moving into management for the first time, as well as offering state of the art lectures in marketing and motivation that are sure to give even the most experienced practitioners and practice managers food for thought.
“For the first time we are also offering a stream that will focus on personal and professional development which will help individuals to leave with some concrete action plans. This is not just an event for VPMA members; it’s the profession’s premier management conference so anyone who feels that they are a decision maker or aspires to be one, should attend.”
Next year’s congress will take place in Kenilworth on January 27-29, 2011, in a four-star manor house hotel with 17 acres of grounds. After last year’s congress enjoyed record attendance, this new venue offers the opportunity for even more delegates to attend and the VPMA is emphasising that everyone is welcome.
Tim Webster, GB sales manager for principal sponsors Norbrook Laboratories, said: “We are delighted to once again have the opportunity to support this fantastic congress for the third year running. This consistently well-organised and well-attended event gives us an excellent chance to speak to decision makers and discuss how we can meet their needs.”
Standard sponsors Alison Lambert and Wendy Miller-Smith of Onswitch are equally enthused by the coming event. They said: “As providers of market research and business development services to the veterinary industry, Onswitch work with practice managers and owners every day. We see the improvements that are possible in practice turnover, staff morale and new client registrations when people are committed to the provision of excellence in customer service as well as in veterinary care.
“Onswitch passionately believe that the future is bright for those practices where management is proactive and decisive, and we are proud to be able to play a part in helping the VPMA promote and deliver this message.”
VPMA members have a wealth of knowledge about practice management and congress is the perfect venue for anyone looking for new opportunities, or help with problem solving.
