When you attend our marketing seminar, you will not only learn what works to attract patients — and what doesn’t. You’ll also receive expert guidance from one of America’s leading healthcare marketing experts. Better still, because we cap attendance, your meeting will be interactive, relevant, fun, stimulating and highly productive.
Your seminar leaders have marketed thousands of hospitals and practices over the past 20 years. And because our marketing philosophy is 100% about delivering a positive return-on-investment (ROI), we track all of our clients’ marketing campaigns.
No academic theory here. Instead, we’ll share strategies that are proven to work in the real world. You’ll be amazed by the amount of useful, practical information you receive in just two days.

Our meetings are large enough to be dynamic but small enough to be interactive. The sessions are fast-paced and filled with useful, proven information. This seminar also offers you a fun and exciting opportunity to network and share ideas with like-minded people. Some attendees even become friends and stay in touch for years to come.
Please note: because a positive, small-group dynamic is so critical, we do have a few ground rules. First, solicitation of attendees for marketing services (or anything else) is prohibited. Second, because we share many proprietary strategies, marketing firms and consultants may not attend. Finally, while it is almost never a problem, disruptive attendees will be politely excused from the remainder of the seminar without refund.
Yes, just ask.
While there certainly is no obligation, we find that many attendees want to continue with a relationship that lasts long after the meeting is over. So, if you want our help after the meeting, we can certainly do that, too. (After all, no one wants to be left hanging with 100 more items on their to-do list.)
In fact, our low tuition is an excellent, low-risk way for you to get to know us. At the very least, you’ll come out of our meeting far more informed and better off than you were before. The best-case scenario is that this meeting will turn out to be the beginning of a long, satisfying and profitable relationship.
