Munch & Learn: Bitesize CPD

SAVE THE DATE: The next Munch & Learn will take place on 29th November 2024!

The last Munch & Learn – bitesize CPD for SQPs and the veterinary team – took place in October 2023. Run in collaboration with BVRA, this event was heralded another big success by the online delegates attending!

Munch & Learn presentations were watched by SQPs across all sectors (retail and vet) as well as members of the wider “vet team”, including receptionists, SQPs, RVNs, VCA’s and Vet Techs. It was great to see some of these mixed groups physically getting together after the event to walk their dogs and chat about what they had learned!

We asked the delegates to describe Munch & Learn 2023 in just one word and this is how they responded:

  • Motivational
  • Enjoyable
  • Insightful
  • Informative
  • Enlightening
  • Educational
  • Welcoming
  • Collaborative
  • Refreshing

As always, interaction was high on launch day with 205 pictures posted, 64 community board posts and a massive 653 messages exchanged! So there was lots of learning going on, ideas being exchanged, opinions sought and lots of networking too!

Munch & Learn 2024

Clearly, two forward-thinking organisations are better than one, so Vetpol is delighted to once again partner with The British Veterinary Receptionist Association in bringing this exciting, interactive and informative event to delegates free of charge!

The next Munch & Learn is planned to take place on 29th November 2024. So watch this space for news on the speaker line up, sessions topics being covered, and news of when registration will officially open.

What our sponsors and delegates say…

“I attended as a speaker after many months of presenting virtually during the pandemic and can honestly say that Munch & Learn was the best I have attended”

Melanie Sainsbury, Natures Menu, Speaker and Sponsor

“Definitely the best conference I’ve ever “been to”. Brilliant range of topics and I love how easy it was to ask questions and get other people’s opinions on the topics too”

Rachel Woodcock, Head Receptionist

“I much preferred it pre-recorded as could pause, rewind while taking notes and read other people’s questions and comments”

Mandy Adams, SQP

“Thanks for an amazing day. So informative and loved the whole experience and being able to discuss topics with delegates! Thanks for arranging it, it has been fantastic!”

Rachael O’Rourke, RVN

With grateful thanks to last years’ sponsors, as without them Munch & Learn would simply not happen…
