Sarah Whitehead’s Inner Circle Conference will this year be held on Saturday 21st October, at Cookham in Berkshire, at the beautiful Moor Hall conference centre. 

Sarah will be joined on stage by two truly inspirational and thought-provoking speakers.  



The first of these is coming specially from the USA for the conference, and just one special Masterclass. Linda P. Case - author of the remarkable books ‘Dog Food Logic’ and ‘Beware the Straw Man’ is an independent and objective specialist in Canine/Feline Nutrition, and taught at the University of Illinois Animal Sciences Department and College of Veterinary Medicine. She is also a highly experienced behaviour and positive training specialist.

Linda will be talking on “Your Brain on Dog Food” - focusing on how we can distinguish between scientific, evidence-based information and the anecdotal evidence which is so pervasive in this arena. Delegates will have the opportunity to review, critically evaluate and support (or not) their own pet feeding beliefs during the talk, and you may find yourself surprised!

Linda has never been to the UK before, so this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to listen and learn from such a highly-respected force in her field.

Also joining us, we have the outstanding neuroscientist and founder of ‘Brighter Thinking’, Rachel Bamber. Rachel’s lecture will delve into ways that we can ‘de-clutter’ our own brains to reduce stress and anxiety in our working lives.

As dog trainers and behaviourists, the pressure to do right by our clients can become a little top-heavy at times, so Rachel’s inspiring talk will give us proven techniques we can apply immediately.
