Sceptical Vets
18:30 - 23:00
An exciting evening of debate
Social event

Hosted at the Ghillie Dhu, 2 Rutland Street. Edinburgh - a traditional Scottish venue, this fun and interactive evening event is brand new to RCVS Knowledge! The evening will include lively debates, delicious food and it's a great opportunity for delegates to socialise on the first night of the conference.

How it works:
1. The speaker gives a 5 minute presentation on their chosen topic
2. The debate is opened to the crowd – do you agree or disagree? Why?
3. After 15 minutes the MC stops the debate
4. A new speaker begins!

There is limit on tickets so book early to avoid disappointment! If you want to apply to present at ‘Sceptical Vet’ please email ebvm@rcvsknowledge.org with a brief description of your chosen topic.
