Thinking about coming to the Uncharted Veterinary Conference but have no idea what to expect? Are you unsure of what it means to become an Uncharted Community member? Here is your guide to why Uncharted is unique and how it can help you well beyond these three days in Greenville, SC.
Networking at Uncharted
The first day of any Uncharted Conference feels like getting ready for the party of the year! The “Anchor Ball” is the introduction to what Uncharted is all about. The first thing to know: you won't be an anonymous face in a crowd of hundreds. We cap our live events at 150 attendees so no one feels lost in a sea of people and strong connections can be made.
Opening night is full of interactive table discussions, ice breakers, and introductions. You'll be moving around the Westin Poinsett ballrooms meeting speakers, sponsors, and other attendees. It's a great time to network and make some conference buddies. It's also the first chance at getting points for the Social Media Scavenger Hunt.
The Anchor Ball officially opens with introductions by the Uncharted Conference Founder, Dr. Andy Roark. He and the Uncharted Team mix in some group discussions to stimulate discussions about what YOUR Uncharted experience will be. After Andy's Keynote talk and a few other surprises, you'll head to bed feeling inspired and prepared for the Conference you've just helped create. (Want to know more? Choose Your Own Adventure is explained at the Conference!).
What will you learn at the Uncharted Veterinary Conference?
The Uncharted Conference in April is our flagship event. In celebration of 5 years serving the veterinary profession, we have shifted the focus of this conference inward. You’re not looking to grow your business outwardly – you’re looking for ways to build resiliency and reignite your love for your career. During this 3-day adventure in beautiful Greenville, South Carolina, you’ll be discussing topics like hiring for culture, creating the story that becomes your path, and building smoother, more simple ways to practice.
You will also learn about your fellow Community members. We offer opportunities like Mic Drop talks to allow attendees to share stories about their paths through veterinary medicine and beyond. They are a fan-favorite of our live events and a bonding experience for everyone involved!
How do we make the Uncharted conferences fun?
Uncharted live events are conferences that you create. The experiences you have depend on your readiness to jump in and learn in a whole new way. The Uncharted team works together to bring you the content you need now and find creative ways to address the problems in veterinary medicine with open and honest discussion. Mixed into every Uncharted event is a little bit of magic. Surprise outings and scavenger hunts are just a couple of the ways fun is infused into every Uncharted experience.
We encourage our attendees at every event, live or virtual, to take the Conference and make it what YOU need. No chains (except maybe that stubborn lap cat) hold you to our schedule. Make the most of your breaks and have coffee with a few new friends, compare notes with your leadership team that's attending with you or take that cat nap to recharge. You do you!
How will you ACTUALLY go back to your clinic and Get Sh*t Done?
The last part of every Uncharted Veterinary Conference is dedicated to planning how YOU will take what you learned back to practice. Led by Dr. Andy Roark and Stephanie Goss, you'll walk through strategic planning that will set you up for success in achieving your clinic culture goals. By the end of the conference, you'll have new contacts, new tools, and newfound energy to tackle your problems in practice.
What happens if you love Uncharted and want more?
If you don't want your Uncharted experience to end, the Uncharted Community is the perfect place to continue the conversation! Members get access to all of the previous virtual event content, free access to virtual workshops and exclusive entry to our live events. We are making our return to Greenville for the first time in 3 years at this event! You will be able to ask questions and reach out to any of the Community members anytime – which means you're even more likely to reach the goals you make at the conference.
