Royal Canin has continued its support of the regional CPD programme organised by the VPMA and SPVS, in partnership with Bayer, and will be kick-starting spring with “future proofing your business”, “front of house” and “being a fair boss”.
On Wednesday 1 March in Solihull, the one-day course titled “Is your business future proof?” will explore how to plan for the future, the pros and cons of partnership, selling internally or externally and steps to increase the business’ valuation.
On 15 March in Newbury, Royal Canin’s Clare Hemmings and Emma Mapletoft from Bayer will deliver a practical and interactive course on “First and last impressions”.
The pair will guide those responsible for front of house and retailing through marketing messaging, making the most of retail space and leaving a lasting impression with clients.
On 29 March, “How to be a fair, reasonable and legal boss” is aimed at any owner or manager wishing to create elite teams within their practice.
This course will explore:
- how to recruit effectively
