Agria unveils winner at Congress


Practice Manager Sarah La Thrope had a good weekend at the Veterinary Business & Management Congress when she won the £50.00 prize draw after voting for her favourite Practice Waiting Room Display using the Agria Pet Insurance kit.

Agria invited vet practices the length and breadth of the UK to submit photos of their pet insurance display using the materials developed and supplied by the company that enabled support staff to create impactful, informative pet insurance waiting room displays for the benefit of their clients.

The £50.00 cash prize was presented to Sarah from Ashmore Veterinary Centre on the final day of the Congress by Veterinary Sales Manager Christian Romeril.

Veterinary Surgeons and Practice Managers alike were invited to judge the 9 finalist entries and vote for the winning display during the 2-day Congress.

The winning practice will be announced at BSAVA Congress and will win a £500 night out for their team.

“The competition has been a fun way of launching Agria’s Waiting Room Display materials”, comments Simon Wheeler from Agria. “The serious side is that surgery staff can now make their promotion of pet insurance very personal to practice using clients actual experiences. As we saw to such good effect from the finalist entries displayed at VPMA.”
