Vets encouraged to take part in webinars for World Creativity and Innovation Day.
The RCVS has announced that it will be holding an interactive workshop on different creativity techniques that can help veterinary professionals develop innovative thinking within the practice team.
The two 60-minute sessions are being held as part of RCVS' ViVet innovation project, and will take place at 12.30pm and 6pm on Wednesday 21 April, the United Nation’s World Creativity and Innovation Day.
Workshops will be hosted by Gill Stevens, founding director of Level Seven, and Rick Harris, founder of Customer Faithful.
Each workshop will discuss a variety of creative techniques that can foster innovation. Then different breakout groups will be given various problems to solve using these techniques that mirror common challenges and issues encountered within everyday veterinary practice.
Sophie Rogers, RCVS ViVet manager, said: “These creativity techniques are a framework for approaching problems, but the key to developing solutions to everyday tasks and problems is learning how to foster and harness the whole team's creative abilities.
“These workshops will provide the techniques to help you and your team overcome the common barriers to creativity and gain the tools and mindsets needed to break existing patterns and ways of doing things, generate new ideas, and improve creative self-leadership.”
The sessions are designed for active participation and so a limited number of places are available. The workshops will count towards veterinary professionals' continuing professional development (CPD) requirement. To sign up, please visit the ViVet website.
