Can Medical Doctors Succeed in Business?

Enterprising Doctors Workshop 20160312_130223   On the morning of Saturday the 12th of March while I drove into the City towards the Enterprising Doctors Workshop. I wondered about this question and why our Business (Great Business Platforms) had agreed to sponsor this event. I  arrived, walked into the Enterprisingdoctors conference venue at Cass Business School and  was pleasantly surprised. These are my observations of the day:

  • Meet and greet at the door was with a big smile by Dr Abeyna Jones, who is also the Co-Founder.
  • I found the mix of speakers, who were well experienced and diverse excellent. ( This included Doctors in the private sector, public sector, student doctors and importantly non-medical professionals from marketing to accounting.
  • The amount of time given to delegate Doctors to receive quick coaching, rehearse and present an elevator pitch was spread out and managed.
  • Q&A, Networking time was sufficient
  • It can only get better.
  I thought to myself in this  very disruptive  environment; it’s only a matter of time before the most risk adverse “Employee minded” Doctor comes out with a thirst for Enterprise. The day was extremely well balanced and, in my opinion, a great place to start thinking of Business. Did I think it was worth sponsoring?  YES Was the event value for money for doctors in attendance?….the truth It was a steal! Who were the organisers? Dr Abeyna Jones,  Sara Sabin and Dr Charlie Easmon   Proud Sponsors  “Great Business Platforms.” [gallery ids="1535,1534,1533,1532,1529,1530"]]]>
