Fast Track to Pharmacy Success: Speakers from the 2017 PDS All Star Super-Conference
“Helping pharmacy owners grow in an unfair game.” This has been the sole focus of PDS Founder and CEO, Dan Benamoz for 18 years since the launch of Pharmacy Development Services (PDS). After extensive planning and collaborating, we are ready to drive substantial changes in the independent pharmacy industry.
Our 2017 PDS All Star Super-Conference gave pharmacy owners the platform to start getting the results they wanted for their pharmacy. They heard from the top movers and shakers in the business who shared key strategies and insights for achieving entrepreneurial success. The 2017 Keynote Speaker lineup was made up of the biggest and brightest business leaders never before seen at a pharmacy conference. Attendees discovered the steps needed to take to achieve operational efficiency, build an excellent team, and increase their bottom line.
Paul DePodesta, Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game: The inspiration behind the motion picture Moneyball, DePodesta has made a career of evaluating, measuring and assigning a quantifiable value to talent. DePodesta played a major role in leading the New York Mets to the World Series in 2015 as VP of Player Development and has recently taken on a new role as Chief Strategy Officer for the NFL’s Cleveland Browns. DePodesta’s approach focuses on building an empire in spite of budget shortcoming through data-mining and analytics. Let’s face it, in a constantly evolving industry; you must continually pivot your pharmacy business to avoid becoming irrelevant. By learning and applying the Moneyball methodology to your business, you will change the way you look at the success and profitability of your pharmacy by making data-driven business decisions to win against the competition.

Communication and change are challenging in any organization, but Heath will help uncover the keys to creating and implementing more efficient strategies in your pharmacy.

Subtle, incremental things you do the right way in your pharmacy business will bring huge rewards. Weldon is a highly sought-after corporate speaker who’s most well known for his slogan that states “Success Comes in CANS, Not Cannots.” Weldon is a master at tailoring his presentations to his audience.
