In September of this year I had the honour of presenting a day long workshop on “Developing a Customer Focused Business for Veterinarians” at the 10th annual Equine Business Management Strategies program. I have attended 7 of these events over the years and it was instrumental in developing my interest in veterinary business management. The lineup of presenters over the years have been stellar, with a mix of business school professors and practitioners with a strong business background. To be asked present by Dr. Bob Magnus, the founder of this program, was a highlight of my public speaking career.
Along with the pleasure of presenting was participating in the engaging and engaging presentations by the other presenters. I thought this information was too good to waste, so I thought I would interview all of the speakers to share the highlights of their presentations. Their are two parts to this series of interviews. Join me in episode one as I chat with Dr. Magnus about the EBMS program and the history of this phenomenal business education event. I also chat with Shana Carroll, of the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University as we review her presentation on “Leaders as Communicators”.
If you have a chance check out the EBMS website and see the program they are offering in Paris this fall, China in February 2016, and Australia in May 2016. Its exciting to have been part of a global initiative for educating equine veterinarians.
