Presenter(s)

Dr Campbell Costello
Dr Costello is a multi-species general practitioner who obtained his degree at James Cook University in 2010. After many years working within varying countries, cultures and practices, he has returned to North Queensland and the Northern Territory as a veterinarian. His return to NQ and the NT has mostly involved him working in remote Indigenous communities, where he has committed to several animal management programs. Dr Costello has a professional interest in both public health and preventative medicine. This is evident through his work in Disease Surveillance across Australia and his Disease Response training in Nepal with the FAO & the United Nations. This knowledge has given Dr Costello an insight into what needs to be done in the Northern Territory and North Queensland in regards to preventative measures and disease outbreak. Whilst working within Arnhem Land, the Northern Territory and Northern Queensland, Dr Costello has worked closely with Indigenous communities, educating them on the benefits of spaying and treating their canines and pets. Not only does Dr Costello immerse himself within these regions, but he has come away with an enriched knowledge of the Indigenous culture. Along with extensive experience inside indigenous communities, Dr Costello is an accomplished veterinarian with a keen sense of adventure. As a licensed pilot and owner of a Piper Lance aeroplane, Dr Costello has transportation covered. He is aware that an understanding of the distance and locations of these communities is vital and would like to face these challenges head-on.
Ms Deb Render
Deb has over 30 years’ experience in the veterinary industry and qualified as a Veterinary Nurse in the UK. After nursing in both a mixed practice and small animal referral hospital, she worked for a veterinary nutrition company as a Veterinary Business Manager where she developed an interest in Customer Service, Marketing and Management. In 1999 Deb moved to Australia, where she took up a role as practice manager. She has managed and co-owned a 3 clinic group for over 15 years. Deb is passionate about delivering outstanding customer service and helping others to do the same. She has been delivering the Customer Service Roadshow and other related training seminars for Crampton Consulting Group since 2014.
