ASO Business Skills Expo
2017 Expo a Success!
I am pleased to report that our fourth annual Business Skills Expo, held at the Intercontinental, Double Bay, was a great success.
More than 80 attendees gathered for a packed one-and-a-half-day Expo program.
Following direction of members attending previous years, we worked hard to incorporate topics of interest.
This year, we were fortunate to have many new speakers, including the CEO of Day Hospitals Australia outlining the great work this organisation does for Day Hospitals and the interaction with Private Health Funds. In addition, our favourites, such as Jarrod Bramble gave an insightful account of "What not to do" for an accountant and indeed, our Vice President, Peter Sumich gave a presentation on many topics inducing much discussion.
Another engaging presentation which sparked interest was David Bates from Cura Day Hospitals Group confirming our profession: ‘Why Choosing Medicine over Law was a Smart Idea’, which raised the mood of the day and produced much laughter.
The Sunday morning Day Surgery Meeting was also well attended, covering a range of topics such as health insurers, funding arrangements, national sterilising standards and licensing issues. This is always a light hearted and open discussion between Day Surgery owners (and users) with issues that have affected us and may affect us in the future.
Overall, the event was a great opportunity for all attendees to learn, connect, engage and network in a relaxed and unique environment.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all sponsors, speakers and attendees for making the Expo such a great success again.
Please make sure you leave room in your calendar for the Expo in May 2018!
