Annual Conference

Vet Dynamics Conference 2017

A Paradigm Shift – Veterinary Business 2020

Pets, People, Purpose, Passion

14th, 15th & 16th September 

The Oxford Belfry,
Milton Common,
Nr Thame,

Every year Vet Dynamics holds a 3 day conference for independent veterinary practices. This is the one time in the year that all of the Vet Dynamics Community get together to enjoy veterinary CPD and share success.

In science and philosophy, a paradigm /ˈpærədaɪm/ is a distinct set of concepts or thought patterns, including theories, research methods, postulates, and standards for what constitutes legitimate contributions to a field.


The veterinary profession is at a crossroads. The groundswell of change in demographics, economics, corporatisation, competition and technology have caught up with the mind-set of traditionalism and conservatism inherent in our profession. A new business paradigm is required.


An unstoppable force has met with an unmovable object.


Independent practices in particular are probably the best placed to respond to these changes but paradoxically are the least prepared.


Paradigm shift: In The Structure of Scientific Revolutions, Kuhn wrote that “the successive transition from one paradigm to another via revolution is the usual developmental pattern of mature science.” (p. 12)


The greater arc of history suggests that we are an agrarian age profession, practicing digital age technology with industrial age thinking. For the first time in history we have 3 distinct demographics in the workforce: aging Baby-Boomers, busy Gen-Xers and confused Millennials all vying for a voice.


The symptoms are tangible and frightening in terms of poor business performance, human wastage and diminishing veterinary integrity. But who seems to care?


“Perhaps the greatest barrier to a paradigm shift, in some cases, is the reality of paradigm paralysis: the inability or refusal to see beyond the current models of thinking.”


Vet Dynamics cares and this year’s conference is a rallying call to independent practice owners and entrepreneurs who want to build a different future for our profession. Over the 3 day conference we will challenge three foundational paradigms of the Veterinary Identity:


  1. Developing a growth mind-set of adaptability, learning and reflection
  2. Building resilience in ourselves, our teams and our practices
  3. Redefining commercialism to regain the purpose and passion in veterinary practice


Join us on September 14th*, 15th, & 16th to change the veterinary profession.

*Thu 14th is for Platinum and Mastermind members only.
