One of the KEYS to any successful business, veterinary or otherwise is defining the PURPOSE, the WHY of that business (Jim Collins - From Good To Great).
A well defined and articulated PURPOSE, drives the practice, engages the team and bonds the clients. Practices with no clear or defined purpose rarely achieve long-term success.


In this module you will define the:
WHY, the How and the WHAT of your Veterinary practice.
Then you will learn how to use these to increase team retention and engagement as well as how to use them to attract your ideal client.

Diederik Gelderman
on behalf of Veterinary Classrooms

From very early on, Diederik had a passion for helping people and pets. Hence it was only natural for him to enter the field of Veterinary Science, graduating from Sydney University in 1977 with first Class Honours.
After rapidly transforming a struggling one-man veterinary practice into a burgeoning multiple award winning regional veterinary hospital, Diederik began coaching other veterinarians in 2004.
At around the same time he started working with a diverse range of small and large businesses (over 350) both from a team as well as a management and leadership training perspective. These included; an airline, bakery and educational franchises, advertising and accounting practices, veterinary and medical wholesalers and manufacturers.
As well Diederik has help coach, mentor and train numerous private individuals who have come to him for personal development and leadership development as well as stage presentation and public speaking training.
Diederik is passionate about helping people develop and build their veterinary practices as well as themselves.
He was Board Member of the AVAPM and the AVBA as well as being president of the AVBA in 2015 and 2016.
Along this journey, he gained his Masters Degree in Veterinary Science (1996), his TAE Cert IV in Practice Management, his TAE Cert IV in Training, was voted as Australian Veterinarian of the year by Business Publications Australia (1999), his practice won the AVA/Pfizer Practice Of Excellence Award (2004) and he was certified as an NLP Master Trainer and Coach in 2005.
Currently Diederik lives in Exeter, NSW, Australia with his partner Jennifer, 10 dogs, 4 cats, a donkey, 3 horses (all rescues), 5 cattle, 4 alpacas, numerous geese, ducks, chooks, peacocks, pheasants and a number of rescued birds. You can see why they need their 10 hectares!
Diederik has a passion for pets, rapid learning, profound knowledge, the environment, helping the underprivileged and competes at high-level squash. However, the ‘call’ of and passion for hands-on clinical practice is still so great that he spends on-average, one day a week doing clinical work.
