Save the Date: 8-9 June 2023, Crowne Plaza Stratford upon Avon
The Veterinary Management Group (VMG) has announced that its 2023 Congress will take place on 8-9 June 2023 at the Crowne Plaza in Stratford upon Avon, aiming to inspire delegates to develop themselves, their teams and their businesses. On offer will be an innovative educational but also highly practical programme that will equip them to deliver immediate tangible outcomes for their practice and their team.
Commenting VMG Director Liz Somerville said: “Many serious problems our profession faces are not clinical. They include the poor leadership that results in so many demotivated team members; a crippling staff and skills shortage which ratchets up the pressure on those still working, and a lack of understanding of how to communicate effectively with today’s sometimes challenging pet owners. For many owners advances in technology, social media, the COVID pandemic – and now, the cost-of-living crisis – are changing their expectations of their veterinary team.
“Running our own congress again has given us the opportunity to completely re-imagine a format and content that will best enable us to bring our growing community together to learn, to be inspired and to share experiences. We will be welcoming new voices and new ideas from across the profession and focusing strongly on both personal and professional development to empower our delegates to enhance the performance of their businesses, while taking care of themselves and their hard-working teams.”
She added: “We hope our delegates will enjoy not just the educational programme but also the opportunity to forge new connections and learn from each other in a friendly and collaborative environment. Even better, we hope they will be inspired to work together with their fellow VMG members even once Congress is over, becoming a force for positive change across the profession.”
The full programme is in development with more details available early in 2023.
