Simply great

The FGDP day in Glasgow yesterday was an absolute pleasure to deliver.
In the morning over 100 dentists heard me present on financial controls in practice management and in the afternoon an audience of 270 dentists and VDP’s listened to The Patient Journey.
As always, the majority recognise the importance of the material but don’t make the time to do anything about it.
I want to acknowledge the excellent organisation of the event by the local FGDP committee.
Our venue was the Royal Concert Hall and the AV back-up was first class.
The Dental Business School made many new friends and some of them will become clients – one lady simply wrote out a cheque for a year’s coaching after the first session – that’s fantastic.
I got into bed and turned the lights out at 8.45pm last night – and slept until 7.30am this morning.
Now it’s a 9-hour drive!
I love Glasgow – it’s a great city.
