WEBINAR: Lessons Learned from the Last Recession – and How to Prepare for a Future One
Thursday, July 7 - 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm ET
Effective veterinary practice management during recessionary periods is critical. How you determine staffing levels, set prices, and manage financial expenditures likely were key components to how your hospital weathered the last recession. But what are the lessons we learned from the last recession, and how can we apply that knowledge to prepare for a future one? In this webinar, Terry O’Neil will share his insight on how to effectively manage labor, determine price elasticity, improve efficiencies, and calculate a break-even analysis. And he’ll explain how to apply these management skills to effectively manage the veterinary hospital of the future.
