With Hercule Van Wolfwinkle!
This session is sponsored by Vets Stay Go Diversify
How did a Facebook post, a new found passion for drawing (albeit badly!) and a dream of raising £299 for a local homelessness charity become a 250,000 people strong online community that has raised over a quarter of a million pound for a charity and turn one man's life upside down?
With Dr. Kirsten Ronngren, Many Pets.
This session will provide actionable tips on turning your day in clinic (or elsewhere) into captivating content online! By using examples, you'll learn how to show your own personal energy and style, while tying in what you do on a daily basis into successful posts. We will also focus on providing reliable educational content in a fun way for pet owners.
'The standard you walk past is the standard you accept'. Leadership can involve setting standards and role modelling. Sometimes this necessarily involves courage, being the one to speak up and say something isn't right. But online debate can be polarised, lack nuance, and tend towards shaming rather than achieving change. So how can we call out (or call in) effectively? What does being kind and courageous look like for veterinary leaders in online spaces? What evidence can help inform people who want to do good and set a standard in the way they communicate online?
Before she joined the PetsApp pack, she was involved in veterinary animal health brands such as Purina, VetzPetz and even Cath Kidston Pet, but she's joining us today to share tips and tricks into seeing how there is content in everything. She'll be leading an interactive content creation session covering content pillars and how to create multifaceted, high-value content with minimum effort.

Community Chats: Keeping content inclusive & accessible

Community Chats: Finding niches and finding balance online, real talk.
'The Magic of Community - Why building online communities is powerful for your purpose'
With Ebony Escalona
There is power in community - whether as a creator or as a practice/business. We often think of our public digital platforms and the power of the online community is often overlooked. Did you know that a growing number of people around the world are finding meaning and a sense of belonging in online groups. According to the YouGov survey, in 11 out of 15 countries studied, the largest proportion of respondents reported the most important group to which they belong is a primarily online one.

Community Chats: Talking to Millions - Lessons Online
Social media brings us huge amounts of positives: connection, information, reach and impact. However, it can also be the source of great volumes of misinformation. In veterinary medicine we discuss how we educate owners at their level, how we disseminate good quality information, how we advocate for animal health and welfare and how we 'talk to millions' to get the right information to where it is needed to create both individual and further reaching changes.
