Succession planning and KPI’s now

These two presentations will look at the best KPI’s you can use to monitor practice efficiency and health and also have a special twist on the current economic environment using precise data collected by veterinary accountants and valuers. We will also look at how this data affects your succession planning, value or your practice and what sort of succession models we see when practices sell.

R.E.S.P.E.C.T. – Respecting yourself as a manager, building a culture of respect within your team and dealing with disrespect if it arises 

The Veterinary Sector has experienced a lot of change over the past two decades. Not only has the nature of Veterinary employment changed in line with the operations of many employers there is also a continuously evolving backdrop of social expectations on all businesses. With more women than ever before in management positions in the Veterinary sector, a greater diversity within the employee mix and an increased level of legal risk associated with employment, it is more important than ever that managers and practice owners are confident in how they manage their people, and how their people work together. In this workshop, Hugh and Eleanor will reference their deep understanding of the Veterinary environment when explaining how you can find strength as a manager when setting expectations, how you can translate this respect into your organisation’s culture and effectively call out bad behaviour if it arises.

WHAT PEOPLE SAID ABOUT OUR LAST EVENT

PRACTICE MANANGER 

Thank you so much for an incredible conference. Throughout the conference, I was inspired by the speakers, intrigued by the business and blown away by the compassion everyone showed towards each other.

PRACTICE OWNER

A belated thank you for a fabulous conference last week. We really enjoyed it and have already implemented some changes to our routines this week!

The speakers were great and it was a really collegiate group of vets too which made it even better.
