Veterinary CPD specialist Improve International has appointed its first Head of Global Marketing, Katie Hungerford to help drive its continued global expansion and to optimise the experience of delegates attending both its online and face-to-face training programmes.

Katie Hungerford has held senior marketing roles with a range of global and health care brands, including Simplyhealth and Denplan. She brings to Improve International strong expertise in digital strategy and engagement, an area of particular focus for the company as it continues to expand its e-learning portfolio and geographic reach.  She reports to Improve International’s CEO, Dr Heber Alves.

Commenting, she said: “As increasing numbers of vets and vet nurses look to postgraduate training to enhance their career and job satisfaction. I am excited at the opportunity to support their commitment to life-long learning, both by enhancing the delegate journey they enjoy with us and by delivering increased value through supporting them to achieve their career aspirations.

“Improve International is already a highly respected veterinary CPD brand in many countries and as our ambitious expansion programme continues, my focus will be to deliver a marketing strategy to help raise awareness both of our work and that of our awarding partner, the International School of Veterinary Postgraduate Studies.

She added: “The enthusiasm and passion of the Improve International team is inspirational, and I look forward to being part of its continued international success.”


About Improve International

One of the world’s leading veterinary training companies, Improve International was founded in 1998 by a group of like-minded vets and has since provided continuing education to more than 20,000 veterinary surgeons and nurses across 20 countries, including the UK, Germany, Spain, the USA, Australia and China.

The organisation pioneered modular CPD for veterinary professionals, combining review lectures, case-based discussion and hands-on practical sessions in their specialist wet-labs. Today, delegates can now also choose from online and blended courses, including small animal specialisms such as surgery, medicine and feline. 

Responsible for the delivery of the taught programmes, Improve International works closely with its awarding partner, the International School of Veterinary Postgraduate Studies (ISVPS) and with Harper Adams University, which provides the higher education body validation and quality assurance.

Improve International was the first organisation to be awarded a contract from Defra for the training and assurance of Official Veterinarians.
