Profit-Enhancement Workshop: Finding the Root Cause
How can you enhance your veterinary practice’s profits? The answer starts with identifying the key issues or problems that need solving.
This interactive workshop will cover common pitfalls, developing a problem-solving plan of attack and developing an action plan; but more importantly, this session will teach owners and DVMs a new process for thinking about the problems they face in their practice and will give them practical tools for implementation.
Why Budgeting Can Prevent Problems and Relieve Stress
Budgeting is an important part of running a veterinary practice, but often it gets lost in the busyness of day-to-day work. Budgets can benefit a practice in many different ways – allowing owners and DVMs to anticipate problems and make continuous improvements, enabling sound financial decisions, establishing accountability and even establishing incentives for key management personnel, to name a few.
How to Boost Your Return on Investment by Exposing Hidden Costs
Your practice needs new equipment, but have you considered the costs beyond the price tag – the hidden costs?
All About Fees: What to Charge and How to Keep It
There are many factors to consider when determining what you charge at your practice. This session will cover the various steps for establishing fees, including:

  • Setting the fee (price and structure)
  • Getting the fee (client education)
  • Keeping the fee (time management)
