Wouldn’t it be great if there was a surefire way of achieving the results you’ve dreamed of? There is, says dental buisness coach Andy McDougall from Spot On Business Planning – it’s called effective business planning.
Everything you do in your dental practice comes back to numbers so understanding them is essential – but knowing how to influence them is critical. When working with Spot On Business Planning we cut through the jargon to teach our clients what they should have learned at dental school.
The process starts by taking a look at where your business is today and comparing that with where you would like it be at some time in the future. Being able to read a set of accounts and understand what it tells you about the changes you should be making if you are to improve profits is vital. Welcome to the world of business planning.
This article gives you a taster of the kind of things clients of SOBP typically experience and learn.
Some 100 practice managers and principals joined the launch of the Practice Managers Business Club in London on Saturday, November 10.
The Discovery Day introduced the business club – the brainchild of industry favourites Ashley Latter and Andy McDougall – attracting delegates from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, who attended to hear four inspirational speakers and find out more.
This revolutionary business club will provide forward-thinking PMs with the very best coaching the dental industry has to offer. Its aim is to up-skill PMs to help them become more effective business leaders.
Feedback from the Discovery Day at Friends House in Euston has been very positive. One attendee, Julie Randle, practice manager of Smile Style Dental Care Centre in Stafford, said:
“Not often do I come away from a course buzzing and with so many new ideas to implement. The speakers were first class, enjoyable, engaging, informative, passionate…the list goes on! Every time I hear Ashley and Andy speak I have more ideas and those light bulb moments that we all love.”
Other responses from attendees about what they most enjoyed about the day included:
“Very motivational and inspiring. Would recommend! Looking forward to putting ideas into practice,” Holly
“Gained valuable information and motivational ideas,” Julie
“Realising that we are not on our own with our challenges and that we can do something about it,” Gillian
Ashley and Andy were absolutely thrilled with the success of the day, which also provided delegates with six hours of verifiable CPD and a welcome pack that included information about membership perks including a copy of the launch edition of A-head for Business a quarterly magazine, details about forthcoming seminars and members’ only website, a business toolkit packed full of useful resources and more.
“The atmosphere was amazing and we are delighted with the feedback we have received from delegates, who seem very keen to join the club and take their practical skills and business success to the next level,” said Andy McDougall, from Spot On Business Planning.
For more information about the PMBC, which will kick off in January, please email us.
Nearly 100 principals and practice managers have already secured their places to hear world-class speakers, be motivated to develop their management and business skills, and to be among the first to join a much-needed business club for dental practice managers.
The journey starts on November 10 – Join us, you are worth it

Andy McDougall and Ashley Latter’s brand new business club for practice managers will be launched in London in less than a month’s time! This revolutionary business club will provide forward-thinking PMs with the very best coaching the dental industry has to offer.
Calling all business owners!
It is vitally important that you and your manager are pulling in the same direction. For real change to take place back at your practice, you need to be on board and part of that process. If you would like your PM to steer your business forward, then invest in their – and ultimately your – success.
Many PMs complete diplomas or more and still find they cannot do their job effectively. They may have learned the theory, remembered it and passed the test but do not know how to apply it practically. This club is all about providing the theory and enabling PMs to use it. Get on board and attend our Discovery Day with your PM for the special combined price of £202 (plus a booking fee if booked online). Book now!
So, what will PMs get from membership?
This is the first business club for dental practice managers where members will enjoy the very best coaching the dental industry has to offer and learn how to become the most effective dental business managers.
The PMBC will be launched at a Discovery Day on November 10 in Euston and practice owners and managers are invited to hear four incredible speakers, with proven ideas and techniques, who will help them grow their practice, drive their profits, motivate their teams and inspire them to take action.
Attendees will also gain 6 hours of verifiable CPD, as follows…
