Rise up to your full potential!

If there’s one profession that deserves a ton of help—and admiration—it’s pediatric private practice owners. You’ve dedicated your lives to helping kiddos in your community reach their full potential and that just blows me away! That’s why I’m on fire to tell you what we have in store for you at our upcoming RISE UP! Peds-A-Palooza® conference.
 
First off, just to let you know, our conference agendas are always based on surveys of private practice owners just like you. We want to know what keeps you up at night (and then help you kick it to the curb)! When we examined our most recent surveys, we saw that hiring and retention continues to come up as a major challenge.
 
So, we dug in deeper and discovered an underlying issue that also continues to come up: communication problems! That makes so much sense because communication directly affects hiring, retention, leadership and much more inside (and outside of) the clinic. That’s why we’ll be covering communication in-depth at our RISE UP! conference including how to:
 
• Quickly establish a genuine rapport with job candidates
• Determine if a candidate really is the right fit for your practice
• Strengthen retention by creating the culture you envision  
• Ensure the front desk is effectively handling callers and visitors
• Create a management team
• Become an even more powerful leader
 
Don’t worry, we will cover hard skills too—all new material for hiring and retention. But you’ll also learn the fundamentals of communication that can not only enhance your clinic but your life. The effects are far-reaching. You and your staff are going to absolutely love this!
 
Speaking of staff, be sure to bring yours with you to the conference. You’ll have the chance to:
 
• Amalgamate the staff to your vision
• Get everyone on the same page
• Collaborate off the grid
• Reward key staff
 
Our agenda is jam-packed. As always, Diane Crecelius, Founder of ABC Pediatric Therapy will be the keynote speaker. Diane built a multi-million-dollar, multi-location practice that has well over 3,000 visits per week and 200 staff! She loves to pay it forward by sharing how she achieved her success. Of course, we’ll have other industry experts speaking as well.
Yours truly will be your host which is my favorite thing to do. You can expect some inspiration, motivation and a few jokes. 
 
By the way, did you know that Peds-A-Palooza® Community & Conferences is entering its sixth year? We’ve now helped thousands of Private Practice Owners and their staff!  
 
When I originally came up with the idea for Peds-A-Palooza, I never anticipated it would mushroom into the thriving community it is today. It’s truly an honor to work with this noble profession!
 
Our RISE UP! conference will be centrally located in Dallas, Texas, to make it easier for people across the U.S. to attend. 
 
Because our conferences always sell out, you should register right now. It’s easy, just use the form below!
 
I am really looking forward to seeing you there!
