The memo on the office bulletin board peaked my interest. It highlighted a meeting organized by the Greater Los Angeles District (GLAD) branch of the CPTA. The location was to be located in a brewery, the Wolfcreek brewery in Santa Clarita. See our photo diary below.
As anyone who reads this blog or follows Jetset Rehab Education on social media knows, we feel the networking is ESSENTIAL to clinicians.
By the way, this is why our classes are built around a great instructor AND a strong networking component built in.
Here are some reasons why networking is important for Clinicians:
- Referral system. Example: This particular night I met someone who is a Lymphadema specialist. I had been on the lookout for a specialist in this area for quite some time. Now I have someone I can send patients to if they need this service. These opportunities are everywhere! Perhaps your business or clinic provides a specialty service. After talking face to face you are more likely to get a referral vs. email ads and other forms of advertising. Think of this as word of mouth recommendations for your own business.
- New Friends. Like minded people are more likely to develop friendships due to common interests. Friendships are great for having emotional support and understanding. Think of your grad school friends. They were the only ones who understood the intensity of school work and your lifestyle. Just as important are the friends you meet in a profesional setting. More friends = always good.
- Tips/Advice. "That mistake you are about to make, I've already made it."
Wouldn't it be nice to know Clinicians who have been through your path before? Who understand your struggles because their's are the same? Trust me, if you just look, you will find them.
Special thanks to GLAD and the Wolfcreek Brewery for the great night!
