Appearances:



Day 1 @ 13:00

Architecture comes to life when people are engaged

“We as an industry are going ahead in leaps and bounds with the state-of-the-art buildings and up-to-date equipment, and fantastic technology, but we must have the people to be the heart and soul of our industry.  

As we adopt the new buildings, technology, and equipment, we also need to adopt changes in our people. 

Women make up at least 80% of our people, vets, nurses, receptionists, administration. Women and young people have different career structures from that of previous generations. As an industry, we are not taking up the opportunity to invite a massive proportion of our people back into our industry.

We have the buildings and the equipment. Now we need to find ways of nurturing our vets and nurses into our practices.”
