What people are saying...

CVC Speaker testimonial from David Nicol on Vimeo.

CVC Conference Washington DC, USA May 2014
““I can’t believe I’m excited about business right now.” -attendee in the hall after @drdavenicol session at #TheCVC. via Twitter

CVC Conference Washington DC, USA May 2014
“#TheCVC was amazing! Best speakers @drandyroark @drdavenicol paws down!!!! Hilarious and knowledgeable. Thanks for a great experience! via Twitter

CVC Conference San Diego, USA December 2012
“I really enjoyed your lectures on social media at CVC San Diego. I learned a lot about what to do and what not to do in social media, as well as getting help about us not having the correct type of FB page(Ugh!). We have a lot of work ahead of us! You display the confidence in practice as well as social media/website that I think is an attribute critical to gaining the trust we need and seek in this profession.”

Katherine Shinski. Hoffman Animal Hospital, Maryland.

CVC Conference San Diego, USA December 2012
“First of all, I wanted to tell you that I haven't looked forward to a set of "lectures" in a long time. What I received was no a lecture at all. Your unpretentious, straight forward way of involving us in your discussion was both extremely refreshing and allowed me to actually see what I have been doing well, and where I see myself improving. In fact, you showed me that I don’t suck so bad! The 8 hours I spent learning and participating with you was easy to do. I felt included in your talk, not just a butt in the seat being talked at. Thank you!

Thank you, too, for the mystery white envelope! I should have given you the $’s back, to help pay the postage of the book, I hope to receive. Either that or the down payment on your first beer. I’ll put it to good use for you. Again, I appreciate your time and your knowledge.

PS. I think I tweeted about 8 times today during the discussions. Out of those, one was retweeted, and I picked up 5 new followers! How's that for Twitter karma?”

Mark Henderson, Telegraph Canyon Animal Medical Centre. Chula Vista, CA.

CVS UK Ltd - Clinical Director Conferences
“Just wanted to say, once again, a huge thank you on behalf of CVS. Your presentation was really well structured and, I must say, delivered superbly. All comments from our Clinical Directors have been positive and you added real value to our day.”
