It is said that people’s worst fear is making a speech in public; the second is dying. Logically, this means people would rather die than give the funeral oration! That has never been my problem. I discovered using one particular profiling system that I am a star. Having discovered that I realise that one of the things I love is giving talks especially about my pet subject dermatology. Has The Webinar Vet, however, turned me into a shrinking violet. The advantages of webinars is many. However, there is no live audience to face. At La Grande Motte this week I was speaking to an audience of 350 vets from 40 countries! I was a bit nervous before I spoke but the delegates were very kind. I spoke about client management with respect to the dermatology case from history taking to long term management. Fiona from Goddards won the trip after our derm series with Royal Canin in the autumn. On our last day, there was a gala dinner at a local wine cellar, a huge, long, narrow building, full of noisy vets especially the Belgian and Portuguese contingent.
After returning Thursday afternoon, I hosted one of our favourites speakers, John Innes who spoke on tarsal and carpal injuries and Liverpool’s success in the Derby!! Not an usual topic for a veterinary webinar. Next week’s veterinary CPD will be a reprise of one of my talks given at La Grande Motte concerning the 15 minute derm consult in general practice
