Held at the Belfry Hotel from 15 to 17 September, “Leading change” was the theme of the event, which saw more than 120 delegates and 60 exhibitors and sponsors attend over the three days.

Top speakers

Aimed exclusively at independent practices, the annual conference featured a number of top speakers in the field of leadership, including former Army captain Tim Threipland, SPVS president-elect Brian Faulkner and veterinary management consultant Sarah Page-Jones.

As well as three days of CPD, the event included a black tie dinner for delegates, during which more than £3,000 was raised for the Veterinary Benevolent Fund.

Exceptional buzz

Vet Dynamics managing director Alan Robinson said: “Exceptional is the best word I can come up with for this year’s Vet Dynamics conference focused on leading change in the veterinary profession.

“Everyone I spoke to over the three days talked about the ‘special buzz’ and energy that was generated by the combination of great speakers, great topics, the broader commercial support and the quality, quantity and commitment of the delegates.

“I feel there is far too much ‘doom and gloom’ and worry about the future in our profession. I am immensely pleased to be a part of this groundswell of positivity, proactivity and hope for independent practices the future of our profession. Thank you to all who contributed.”
