Since the launch of VM G at Congress 2018 there has been a real buzz and excitement around how the regional structure will look! A new initiative, the Regional Roadshows, has been introduced and engagement is at an all-time high.
The concept is that three topical lectures will be delivered across our regions, throughout 2018.
Our first Regional Roadshow, Effective Credit Control within the new GDPR Regulations, presented by VMG and Mike Brooks of dsl Ltd, is well underway with meetings in Basildon (Essex region), Newton Aycliffe (North East region), Grantham (East Midlands region) and Bury St Edmunds (East Anglia region) having gone down a storm. Before the middle of April 2018 this roadshow will also go to Stockport, Bromsgrove, St Helens, Rotherham, Cardiff, St Asaph, High Wycombe, Worthing, Maidstone and Aberdeen. Don’t miss out as some meetings are selling out quickly, so visit www.events-by-vmg.co.uk to register. VMG members of course get a preferential rate.
Our Regional Organiser for East Anglia, Tamsin Swain shared her experiences of this session:
A very animated meeting was held by the VMG East Anglian region on February 16 at the Active Business Centre in Bury St Edmunds. Mike Brooks of dsl Ltd was an extremely knowledgeable and approachable speaker who could relate directly to the veterinary management setting – providing countless examples and suggestion that everyone found useful the advice offered regarding the new data protection regulations was welcomed but daunting; many quizzical and terrified glances between delegates were exchanged with eyebrows well exercised. As this was only a relatively small group with confidentiality assured, delegates were happy to share suggestions, experiences and concerns, which provided an excellent support framework to all.
Requests for a review were put forward so that mutual support could be provided, particularly for those in independent practice, who were the majority, represented, and may not benefit from group or corporate support., ‘Feedback at the end of the event was good and all questions were answered with attendees being thoroughly involved in the meeting and appreciative of the learning and networking opportunity.
