Hygienists conference

An audience of around 400 hygienists at their annual conference in Bournemouth – and CB presenting on the subject of “teamwork”.
This group were unusual in that the majority were not “decision makers” in a business sense because they work in practices owned by dentists, so I guess my presentation was intended to enroll them as ambassadors back in their practices on Monday.
A very warm reception, lots of laughs and the chance to re-acquaint myself with many old friends from former client’s practices.
We were also blessed with glorious but cold weather – temperatures dropping well below freezing on the Friday night but, after all the festivities, walking along the sea-front back to the hotel was exhilarating.
Keep on “gigging” – never stop “gigging” – visibility is the key. 400 potential new friends and ezine readers today.
