ACCELERATE! 2023

This is exactly what you, your staff and your practice need to get in the fast lane! We fully comprehend the severity and complexities Private Practice Owners are facing today. That is why the ACCELERATE! Conference was designed… to put you in the driver’s seat where you belong, gaining control and crushing barriers.

In this two-day, jam packed information and networking extravaganza, you will leave with workable and implementable strategies. We will dive in and pull the curtain back on everything to help you Recruit, Hire, On-Board and Retain your best staff now.

Another common but dangerous pothole owners often fall into is payroll–where your payroll expenditures exceed or get in the way of your bottom line. In our specially designed, owner only, 1.5-hour breakout, you will be guided to analyze and correct the payroll piece of the puzzle.

Come experience the camaraderie of other owners who generously share their most successful solutions. Your staff will enjoy their own tailor made break outs. This not only ignites their engagement but it will amalgamate them to the same common purpose–to help more kiddos, give relief to more caregivers and serve more of your communities.

These are not tips and tricks to get by, but are proven strategies, to move out of the hiring desert and unleash your practices’ potential.

Join us for all of the fun, information and invigoration while we experience and take in all that is NOLA! Seating and accommodations are extremely limited and both will sell out!

Come for the Peds-A-Palooza™ event and stay for the New Orleans experience.

We are thrilled and ready to welcome you and your team!
