Organised by Veterinary Practice, in association with Onswitch (which ran the business/management sessions) and Improve International (which ran the masterclasses and looked after the speakers), VetsNorth 2012 was intended as a local event for veterinary surgeons in and around Greater Manchester.
But delegates came from far and wide – from places such as Surrey, Suffolk, Norfolk, Dorset, Wiltshire, Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Tyne & Wear, Cumbria, Wales and Scotland – as well as nearer to the highly-rated venue in the heart of Manchester.
The event had three clinical streams – refresher, advanced/cutting edge and masterclasses – along with a business/management stream.
In addition, on the first day the VDS communications training team ran “the consultation challenge” in which delegates had individual sessions led by experienced vets – along with an actress.
The same venue has been chosen for next year when VetsNorth 2013 will be held on 28th and 29th June.
Michael Ellis Wealth Management provided a complimentary consultation and bespoke information to the Vets across the two day event and also provided a free Champagne prize draw. The Lucky winner to receive the Champagne was Michael Clarke. The day was a great success and we hope to be involved next year.
