Day 1

Will somebody find me out? Navigating the imposter phenomenon
17:00 - 18:00

Dr Katie Ford is an experienced small animal vet, having graduated from Liverpool in 2012 and gained her RCVS Certificate in Internal Medicine in 2017. She became passionate about opening conversations up around imposter syndrome and self-doubt following her own experiences in the veterinary profession, and trained as a coach with further study in a number of areas, as well as publishing a series of books. Katie grew a following of over 20,000 across social media as @katiefordvet, and is an international and keynote speaker, both in the vet profession and beyond. She co-founded Vet Empowered in 2020, offering personal development content and group coaching services, namely to recent graduates.

As her businesses grew, she saw the importance of money mindset and financial independence, not only within her own clients but in making personal progress too. She joined VetYou as a co-director, helping to break down barriers around finances within the profession and to enable access to timely, expert financial advice.

Throughout her career, Katie has picked up various other skills, from a Level 7 in Event Management (running VETstagram in 2020 and 2023) to a Digital Marketing Diploma. She has been nominated for several awards, from BrightMinds Influencer, MYTA Entrepreneur of The Year and Business Woman of The Year.

She is currently studying for a Masters Degree in Emotional Wellbeing.

Katie was awarded the RCVS Inspiration award in 2023.
