. October: Conference on the benefits of pet insurance (Allentown, PA) - Clinical case presentation - a fun & interactive meeting!
Feedback from the organizer: “I thought that the evening went very well… (…)
Your talk laid the perfect ground work for leading into a specific discussion of the benefits of pet health insurance. (…) It is obvious that you have a good rapport with the local veterinary community, and the give-and-take of your presentation was well suited to the audience. I think the prizes kept the attendees interest very well.”
. October: 2 conferences given at the ACVS symposium in Washington DC: "25 ways to fight hypothermia" and "The neurological exam."
. October: 3 conferences on spays and neuters in Boston (Massachusetts VMA)
Feedback from the organizer:
“The talk(s) (were) exactly what I wanted.
I loved your lecture style. I can honestly say that most lectures I have attended throw so much written info at you that you leave with very little memory of what happened.
Because you stuck to the main points, the information stuck. Also, making it an interactive session made it very enjoyable.
Most people need toothpicks to keep their eyes open in most lectures. I believe that your lectures will always be successful with this lecture style. Thank you again for being so easy to work with.”
