The speaker line-up for the event includes Flexee’s Silvia Janska, who takes a look at ‘Finding Flexible Working Solutions’, including how they can be implemented in practice to empower individuals and teams, and benefit the business.

Katie Ford and Paul Horwood from VetYou, will be addressing overcoming barriers in talking about, navigating, and creating security with money to arm delegates with negotiation tools and useable resources in their workshop session on ‘Financial Security and Negotiation Skills’

Hamzah Malik from Regent Animal Health will lead a workshop on ‘Developing Your Personal Brand’ to build delegates’ confidence in ways to explore and articulate personal identity and strengths, and apply brand marketing principles to boost career success.

The event will also feature ‘Seeing is Believing’ breakout sessions with female speakers from all spheres of veterinary practice, business, industry, nursing and education, sharing their career stories and taking part in Q&A sessions. A key enabler to development as a leader is seeing others do it and hearing their career stories – effectively having role models.

Alice Moore of Garston Veterinary Group and XL Vets will be hosting the event alongside Jenny Langridge of Companion Consultancy and Veterinary Woman. Alice explains “We aim to help delegates explore actions they can take towards reaching their career goals, develop confidence in meeting leadership challenges and feel empowered about achieving aspirations. Hearing others’ stories and being able to talk with women about their careers is inspiring and encouraging.”

The event is suited to all those thinking about the next career step, considering leadership roles or already working within leadership positions in the veterinary sector. Veterinary professionals and students can take advantage of an early-bird rate until 20th November. For more information and to register for the ‘Realise Your Leadership Potential’ event, visit:
