Thinking about coming to the Uncharted Culture Conference but have no idea what to expect? Are you feeling burned out on the usual webinars? Here's why Uncharted virtual events are unique and worth every minute in front of your computer.
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 just another muted face in the crowd. Opening night is full of interactive table discussions. You'll be “moving around the room” meeting speakers, sponsors, other attendees and many keyboard cats. 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 virtual conference training so you will know exactly how to make the most of your experience! After Andy's Keynote talk and a few other surprises, you'll close your laptop 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 Culture Conference?
The second day of the Uncharted Culture Conference kicks off with a general session by organizational guru Bret Canfield. Don't worry, West Coasters, you won't need to be awake before dawn to enjoy this inspiring start to the day (see the full schedule)! Bret will be teaching attendees about the difference between helping and leading, and how every person has their own control of their clinic's culture.
Next up, you'll head out of the main Gold Ballroom into the other rooms of our virtual Westin Poinsett Hotel for your chosen interactive workshops. These workshops won't have you dozing off on mute! You'll be brainstorming with other attendees and asking the questions you need answered. Small group sizes are an important part of Uncharted events so attendees get the most out of every session. If you're feeling intimidated, being off video is absolutely an option, but by the end of the day, we don't think you'll want to be!
How do we make the Uncharted virtual conferences fun?
Uncharted doesn't host your typical virtual webinar events. The Gold Ballroom will be open between every session for coffee breaks and fun. There will be prize drawings, games, trivia and of course, music! Scheduled meal times will give you a chance to stretch your legs between sessions and stay fueled up for the evening's Sponsored Night-In Events. These are optional…but previous events have included Vets Against Insanity with the game's co-creator Caitlin DeWilde, virtual escape rooms, trivia tournaments, art classes, and much more! You won't want to miss it!
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 this December for the Practice Owner Summit! 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.
