Three one-day equine business workshops are being held to help practice owners and managers identify financial performance opportunities.

John Goulding, managing director at St George’s Veterinary Group in Wolverhampton will lead the workshops with Lisa Male of Three Spires Training, using key performance indicators and the balanced scorecard approach (BSC), as tools for monitoring business performance.

Louise Radford of Merial Animal Health, which organised the events, said the Knowing Your Numbers workshops would integrate Merial’s ProActive Insight equine benchmarking system to provide comparisons and insight into the financial areas where businesses could focus time and effort to get the best returns.

Julian Samuelson, managing director of Bell Equine Veterinary Clinic, who helped design the ProActive Insight system prior to its launch in 2013, said Mr Goulding would offer “perceptive guidance” that would help delegates to improve their practice performance.

“Working with the ProActive Insight data – amassed across a wide range of equine practices in the UK to create an ‘artificial practice’ to use on the day – the workshops are designed for practice owners, partners and managers and will utilise current trends and headline benchmarks to discuss strategies to improve practice performance,” he said.

The workshops take place on June 9 at the Aztec Hotel, Bristol, on July 1 at the Mercure Leeds Parkway and on October 13 at Holmewood Hall, Peterborough. Booking is via a £50 deposit per delegate, refundable on attendance or, if preferred, will be donated to World Horse Welfare.

Workshop places are limited to two per practice and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. To book or for more information email, or telephone 0870 6000123. To learn more about ProActive Insight visit
