This special Veterinary Woman podcast is kindly supported by Hallmarq Veterinary Imaging – improving the lives of animals and of those who care for them. Mother and daughter duo Annie and Georgi Makin discuss their individual approaches to work-life balance and how that differs generationally. Annie is Chief Commercial Officer for Hallmarq Veterinary Imaging. After graduating in 1990, she started her career in human healthcare before moving into the veterinary sector 12 years ago. Annie had her family early and delayed her return to work to watch her children, Georgi and Tom, grow up before resuming her career. Georgi is the Editor at Phacilitate, looking after all digital content from news coverage to webinars for the advanced therapies industry, which includes biotech and clinical development of cell and gene therapies. Georgi started working in the veterinary industry as a teenager before studying bioveterinary sciences at the RVC, and subsequently moving into a career in science communication. She is now 27 and is in the process of buying her first home. Working in similar fields, they discuss their different experiences of working life and workplace equality.   About Hallmarq Veterinary Imaging Hallmarq Veterinary Imaging is an award-winning global leader in innovative diagnostic imaging solutions.

One of the privileges of hosting this podcast is hearing from a wide range of brilliant women, and picking up valuable nuggets of wisdom about management, business, veterinary medicine and life in general. Today’s episode has a good few gems courtesy of our guest this time, Victoria Johnson.  Victoria is the founder and CEO of VetCT, a specialist telemedicine provider created to meet the needs of vets using digital radiography, MRI and CT. She is a specialist in diagnostic imaging and has worked extensively throughout the UK, US and Australia. Victoria runs the business with her husband Julien, and we discuss working with your partner in this chat, as well as her progression from general practice to being the boss of a large company.  Useful Links: VetCT website: https://www.vet-ct.com/gb/ Follow VetCT on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/vet.ct/  Subscribe to the VetCT YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/VetCTchannel1  Veterinary Woman: https://www.veterinarywoman.co.uk
My guest today is a wonderful surgeon, teacher and researcher, whose influence on students, interns and residents at the University of Cambridge Vet School over many years has been significant. Jane Ladlow is a European and RCVS recognised specialist in soft tissue surgery, and her pioneering research and work into brachycephalic obstructive airway syndrome has been instrumental in developing both objective assessment of the pets involved, and surgical techniques to help them. Jane was the 2019 recipient of the BSAVA Simon award for her outstanding contribution to the field of surgery, and is now based at Hamilton Specialist Referrals in High Wycombe where she is continuing her work on BOAS patients.  Useful Links: Hamilton Specialist Referrals: https://www.hamiltonspecialists.vet  Jane's LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/jane-ladlow-79b91919/?originalSubdomain=uk  Veterinary Woman: https://www.veterinarywoman.co.uk
I’m delighted that today I’m joined by Laura Whyte, the current chair of XL Vets. Those of you that attended the inaugural Women in Veterinary Leadership conference last autumn will recognise Laura from her brilliant talk there - she is a hugely experienced, charismatic leader with a lot of wisdom to share.  Laura spent over 30 years at the John Lewis partnership, of which over 10 years were on the management board, primarily as director of HR. Laura has huge expertise in managing people, getting the best out of a team, and building a business around the personalities and qualities that those within it offer. She also has an impressive number of trustee and non-exec directorships under her belt, and we talk in this episode about how she chose the organisations she’s worked with, and how voluntary roles can enhance your working life. Laura is so warm and friendly, and full of good advice. I really enjoyed chatting to her and hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.  You can follow Veterinary Woman on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn and find Naomi on Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn here.
My guest today is Amanda Boag, who has so many letters after her name that I’m not sure I even know what they all mean, but suffice to say she’s a very highly regarded specialist in emergency and critical care, and concurrently holds a American Diploma in veterinary internal medicine.  Amanda grew up in a small village in north Yorkshire - true James Herriot country as she puts it. Neither her mother, a teacher, nor her father, a businessman had been to university, but they instilled in her the value of education, education and more education, and after choosing veterinary as her career path, she qualified from the University of Cambridge in 1998, and since then has undertaken internships at the RVC and Penn State University, and a residency at the RVC. She became Clinical Director of Vets Now in 2008, and is now the Group Referral Director of IVC Evidensia.  She is, by her own admission, an adrenaline junkie in the workplace, enjoying the cut and thrust of rapid decision making and producing an immediate difference to an animal. Amanda also has a wealth of experience in leadership and taking the initiative - she has been president of the RCVS, the founding president of the European College of Veterinary ECC and a founding trustee of the British College of Veterinary Specialists, so she knows a thing or two about what it takes to run a successful organisation.  She’s open in this chat about the difficult conversations that motherhood adds to the work/life equation, acknowledging failures as a leader and how you can grow as a result,  and why women have got so much to add to the profession.  You can follow Veterinary Woman on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn and find Naomi on Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn here.
Welcome to the Veterinary Woman podcast! My guest today is a woman that will be very familiar to many of you, as she has been the public  face of veterinary medicine throughout one of the most turbulent years in living memory. As last year’s president of BVA, Daniella Dos Santos has navigated the profession through the challenges presented by the Coronavirus pandemic, doing so with grace, humility and great skill.  As you’ll hear in this chat, Daniella did a degree in molecular genetics at Kings College London before qualifying from the RVC as a vet in 2012. She has been in first opinion small animal and exotic animal practice since then, and is currently the Senior Vice President of BVA following her presidential year. We covered a lot of ground in this chat - widening access to vet school, why it’s ok not to get into vet school first time round, talking about our failures and why you should go for jobs you don’t think you’re qualified for. As ever Daniella speaks with frankness, honesty and good humour and it was a joy to chat to her.

This series was inspired when a friend revealed to me not so long ago that she had just negotiated a sizeable pay rise after discovering that as the only female in her team, she was being paid significantly less than her male counterparts. We discussed how she prepared, how the meeting went and how she drove a successful outcome. After a few drinks, said friend suggested that I do a podcast about negotiation, and that got me thinking about all the other workplace dilemmas that crop up regularly, whatever industry you’re in. So today we will be talking about money, and about NEGOTIATION. I mention some advice on negotiation from Sheryl Sandberg's team at Lean In and you can find the videos here: https://leanin.org/negotiation Other useful resources can be found here: https://www.forbes.com/sites/shelleyzalis/2018/08/15/get-what-you-want-the-womans-guide-to-negotiation/#45aae01f6545 https://www.forbes.com/sites/kimelsesser/2018/04/24/4-key-strategies-women-need-to-negotiate-a-higher-salary/#745b678815d9 https://www.pon.harvard.edu/freemium/new-negotiation-strategies-for-women-secrets-to-success/   Good luck!

Today we are talking about LISTENING. Listening is one of the most under-rated workplace skills, but also one of the most essential. Everyone wants to feel heard, that their ideas are being considered, and that their input is valuable, but if everyone is talking and nobody is listening then as a team, you’re going nowhere fast. Want to be be a better listener? Listen in for more! You can follow Veterinary Woman on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn and find Naomi on Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn here.
This series on career skills was inspired by discussions with a friend about pay, hence the episode on negotiation. Today's podcast follows a conversation with another friend who has had a tricky time at work with a colleague of late: in this podcast we are discussing CONFLICT RESOLUTION. Conflict is inevitable in every workplace, but it's how you deal with it that marks you out both as a leader or a team member. I'll be talking about strategies to manage conflict within a team that you manage, and what to do if you find yourself in a conflict situation. I mention Mike Myatt in this episode and his writings on conflict can be found here: https://www.forbes.com/sites/mikemyatt/2012/02/22/5-keys-to-dealing-with-workplace-conflict/#7f18bfcc1e95  Other useful resources can be found here: https://money.usnews.com/money/blogs/outside-voices-careers/articles/how-to-handle-conflict-in-the-workplace  https://hr.berkeley.edu/hr-network/central-guide-managing-hr/managing-hr/interaction/conflict/resolving   Good luck!

It's easy to scoff at the idea of sitting down and pondering your life, your mistakes and your epic successes, but increasing evidence shows that those that reflect on their performance at work are more likely to go further. Do you want success and happiness in your working life? Of course you do. So have a listen and let me know what you think. I mention in this episode about using the 'Wheel of Life' as part of self-reflection and you can find more info on this here You can follow Veterinary Woman on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn and find Naomi on Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn here.
Today we are talking about NETWORKING.  Love it or loathe it, building your network is key to building your career. For most of us, the word networking brings to mind excruciating post-work events with people you don’t know standing around in ones and twos looking awkward. But fear not! This episode will have plenty of tips and advice to help you feel more confident in approaching others that can help you, and how to build strong rapport with those you meet.  If you've got any networking stories (good/bad/ugly) send them over to me on Instagram and we’ll share them! You can follow Veterinary Woman on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn and find Naomi on Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn here.
My guest today is a women who embodies all the qualities that Veterinary Woman loves to share with others. Kerrie Hedley is now the chief operating officer of XL Vets, reaching executive level after only 4 years at the company. Kerrie graduated from the RVC in 2011 and started in equine practice in the North East. As you’ll hear, she developed a love of business quite early and has since completed both a certificate in Veterinary Business Management and an MBA during her career so far. Her MBA dissertation was on women in veterinary leadership, and we talk quite a lot about this later in the episode, particularly the facilitators and barriers to women progressing in the profession. It was such a joy to talk to Kerrie - she is very humble about her progress but the reality she is that she has a big job and she is now using her position to lift up others women in the profession, which is really what it’s all about.  You can follow Veterinary Woman on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn and find Naomi on Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn here.
