Effective consulting depends on in-depth situational knowledge, irrespective whether a private company employing body or a public body such as DAERA in the role of an authorised veterinary inspector, (AVI) or official veterinary surgeon (OVS).
When leaders hire an expert to take on a challenging task, they don’t expect the person to try things out. They expect the expert to just know what to do.
Even though I had built my chain of veterinary clinics from scratch, I did my MBA to compliment the expertise and experience I had in my area of specialisation. Now with the end of the EU Exit Transition period almost upon us, industry interest in, and requirement for, the provision of support health attestations (SHAs) has increased substantially. As such, and in order to be able to give best advice, I have completed my training and exams. I am now an authorised Veterinary Inspector (AVI) licensed by Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA) to carry out export certification duties on its behalf.
