3 Takeaways from the 2016 PDS Super-Conference
The hundreds of pharmacy owners and staff members who graced the stage and sat in the audience sharing ideas and plans are what made PDS 2016 unforgettable. Our growing network of leaders in independent pharmacy is powerful enough to transform the industry. Our award winners, Showcase of Success presenters and panels of experts shared success stories related to everything from synchronization and pharmacogenomics to clinical services and team management.
Here is some of the wisdom shared from our most popular keynote speakers…
1. Embrace your position as pharmacy entrepreneur.
“I believe, as an entrepreneur, you owe the next generation a road map.” -Kevin O’Leary
“If you want to help anyone anywhere in the world, create a job. And that’s exactly what entrepreneurs do.” -Kevin O’Leary
Many pharmacy owners don’t think of themselves as entrepreneurs, but that’s exactly what you are. Not only are you making a difference in your community and in the lives of the patients you help, you are creating jobs and helping the economy. When you attend events like the PDS Super-Conference, you actively participate in leading the industry forward, helping to create a road map for success that can be followed for generations to come.
2. Learn how to make your business stand out.
“Better is not better. Different is better.” -Mike Michalowicz
As we heard again and again at this year’s Super-Conference, being able to communicate why your pharmacy is different to your patients and your community is the key to improving your success. Don’t hesitate to investment the money, time and staff necessary to identify new programs and market them to your audience.
3. Take charge of the way you show up in your pharmacy on a daily basis.
“80% of success is just showing up.” -Jim Kwik
