We welcome your contribution

Now Accepting Speaker Videos until June 10, 2020

Do you like helping other veterinary professionals? Have you ever experienced challenges in your career or life that you’ve overcome or found a work around? We want to know your story at the Global Veterinary Career Summit! This is your personal invitation to submit a 3-5 minute or less video on one of the following topics:

Video stories are invited on the following topics (please select one):

€ Career path story (5 minutes): Tell where your life as a veterinarian has taken you and what have you learned?

€ I’m a veterinary team member and also... (5 minutes): Tell us what amazing things you do outside of veterinary medicine, and why it matters to you or feeds your whole life satisfaction. Please see guidelines about selling products etc below.

€ Hot Tip or How To (5 minutes): Share a tip you have for career growth, landing a job, residency, balancing life, boundaries, etc.

€ Idea or Pitch for Change (3 minutes): Do you have a cool idea that you’d like to see happen in veterinary medicine?

That’s right, this is our form of submitting an abstract. Even if you do not feel like the most perfect world leading expert, please DO submit anyway. You belong here, and so does your story. In other words, imperfect stories welcome; you never know who you might help or reach with your tip, story, or idea. If this idea scares you, or puts you out of your comfort zone, we would double dog dare you to submit. Remember Neal Donald Walsh’s quote, “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” We can’t wait to see your video!

We are accepting video abstracts (speaker pitches) until June 10, 2020.
