Webinar - Greener Veterinary Practice: Creating a Cultural Change

Join us for this webinar on creating cultural change for a more sustainable veterinary practice. Having a net zero goal and sustainability policies is important, but creating a cultural change, both within our practices and as a wider society is absolutely crucial if we are to create the changes that are so desperately needed for a healthy and sustainable future for all. In this webinar we will hear from Helen Gould, practice owner at Old Hall Vets, about how she has successfully embedded an ethos of sustainability that has not only changed how things are done within the practice, but has created positive ripples within her team and client base too. Helen will share her journey and her practical top tips, sharing easily implemented ideas we can all use straight away.

Key outcomes:

  • Understand the importance of cultural change within practice and more widely
  • Gain ideas and inspiration for getting the rest of the team (and management!) on board
  • Develop practical steps that can be implemented straight away
