If you’ve read the DPM and Vendor Tips in this month’s newsletter, you’ve noticed that I am strongly encouraging all of us to get out of the house and get to a meeting. But wait, you’re a meeting planner. Why would you go to a meeting?

We don’t know what we don’t know, right? There are so many exciting events going on outside of the podiatry space that we aren’t even aware of… but that doesn’t mean we have to keep it that way!

Consider going to a meeting that isn’t yours – whether it be within the podiatry space or not. I would recommend you do a little bit of both.

Maybe there’s a meeting in podiatry that you’ve heard is all the rage. It would be helpful to get a first-hand account of that experience and take notes for their key success factors.

I’m certainly not telling you to be a copy cat, but none of us are in this alone. We are all getting better by emulating best practices. But we won’t know what the best practices are if we don’t get out of our own way.
