Sophie's
Legacy
Saving the people who
save
our animals
Lincoln Insitute of Veterinary Business.

For over a decade, the Lincoln Institute of Veterinary Business has provided contemporary, evidence-based education and support. Their mission is to safeguard the wellbeing of animals and the extraordinary professionals that care for them through bespoke leadership, business, and non-technical competency development programs.

In February 2024, we announced our official partnership, aimed at improving the mental wellbeing and fulfilment of staff in veterinary practices.

What is Sophie's Legacy

This initiative leverages Lincoln Institute of Veterinary Business’ expertise in leadership and culture development and combines it with our advocacy to create a brighter future for all veterinary professionals.

Evidence suggests getting the culture and leadership right in a veterinary practice has significant benefits to both the people in the business and the business bottom line. We are working together not only to honour Sophie’s memory, but also to contribute significantly to a psychologically safer and more sustainable veterinary profession.

The Leadership Audit

As a token of gratitude for the invaluable support and participation of webinar attendees, we offered them an exclusive opportunity to purchase a Lincoln Institute Leadership Audit at a reduced rate. Every dollar saved from this offer went directly to Sophie’s Legacy.

A leadership audit provides a comprehensive assessment of workplace culture, human resource management, and business acumen. It illuminates the blind spots that hinder progress, empowering you with invaluable insights. By cultivating superior workplaces, you actively contribute to the solution. Remember, you don’t know what you don’t know.
