Equine veterinarians are often so powerfully driven by their love and devotion for horses that they tend to forget the final destination of their journey. They love travelling together but do not always travel well-prepared, and sometimes close their eyes to the problems facing them, since the work of equine veterinarians is physically demanding and predisposing for diseases and injuries. How de equine practitioners cope with the sometimes heavy physical and emotional demands posed by owners, patients, colleagues and third parties, more often than not complicated by financial uncertainties? At EBMS International 2013 we will spend a whole day trying to understand the driving forces of equine veterinarians. What can we learn from other strenuous professions? How do we release the power of ourselves and of our staff in such a way that it is also in balance with our private lives?
This interactive workshop and exercises will provide you with tools applicable for your own situation, but also help you to make a start for peer coaching in your own practice.
Acquire a better understanding of effective vs. ineffective approaches to negotiation. Learn the latest in integrative negotiation techniques including building trust, uncovering the other party’s interests, and the skills to work with difficult people. This comprehensive yet pragmatic program is designed to empower you to secure the benefits of exceptional agreements, understand the dynamics of social complexities, and team interactions, by working with real life case examples in equine practice. At the end of this program you will be more comfortable negotiating with staff, colleagues, and vendors like manufactures, distributors, and other service providers. This section of the program will change how you approach and finalize deals both in professional and personal situations allowing you to reap the positive benefits of negotiation.
Brain overload – there are so many ways to using data and reports to help the equine practitioner manage the business. The challenge is filtering through all of the reports, spreadsheets, financials, budgets, and establish what management tools are the most valuable and effective. During this session we will explore the numerous tools and learn how to use them working with real life practice challenges.
This interactive session focuses on examining the value of benchmarking both internally in your practice and externally among colleagues in the industry. Current equine benchmarking data will be shared to provide new insights, ideas, and comparisons. By the end of this discussion you will have the framework to begin benchmarking in your practice and understand why there is value to “compare.”
In today’s world there are many communication options with clients, co-workers, prospective customers, and staff. Social media and communication affects us all personally and professionally. This session will discuss the business value and results of using the social media tool Facebook in equine practice. It’s easy to engage in this communication tool but it is also challenging to evaluate the return on investment for the labor and marketing costs for these efforts. This session digs into real life experiences and analytical results to help your practice.
The global perspective of the equestrian industry is changing and new opportunities and roles are available for equine veterinarians. Equestrian sport is globalizing very quickly following resources, money, and interests, but the local infrastructure does not always develop at the same speed. Some of these challenges are more significant than others. In this session we will update the participants on global issues regarding our profession and highlight business opportunities in other parts of the world. This is a fascinating discussion you don’t want to miss.
Make it happen! As practitioners we identify business problems and attempt to “fix it” - sometimes with great success and other times in failure. Knowledge from these experiences are great lessons to be shared. This action packed part of the program provides real life business lessons and solutions from colleagues from past EBMS programs and their experience from what they have implemented from this program. Multiple business challenges/topics will be covered including the implemented treatments, their results, and the lessons learned from those experiences. Join us to discuss “Best Practices” and look for new options to treat our business needs. Our four core topics this year include:
