4 hours of FREE education and learning for dental laboratories

Your Future Lab

Dental Laboratory Business & Management Course

I was asked if I could put together the entire series of Facebook live  business events  into one  blog post, well, here you go. These videos represent approximately 4 hours of FREE education and learning time, so please bookmark this webpage so you can find it again and return at your leisure.

This training series gives an overview of EVERYTHING that a business needs to focus on in order to thrive – finances, business processes, people and customers.

These Facebook live events represent a summary of each of the modules in the dental laboratory business and management course being run by myself in association with Blueprint Dental, bookings for this revolutionary business course for dental laboratories opens soon, so please register your interest now.

Event 1 – How to Work Less & Earn More

An overview of the 4 key business  areas that every dental business needs to focus on to thrive.


Event 2 – Finances

We take a detailed look at how a profit and loss account, cash flow analysis and balance sheet interact with one another. We will look at how to make business decisions which keep more cash in your business which keeps you more financially secure and comfortable and enables you to invest more readily.
This module is specifically designed to help you MAKE MORE MONEY.


Event 3 – Business Process

We take a look at workflow analysis and how you can use each stage of the work process to enhance your business.

Where does CADCAM fit in?

How can you continuously nurture the relationship with your clients (Customer Relationship Management)?

Where is the ‘value’ in the various processes of your business and how can you optimise these to get more clients and work more efficiently (Value Chain Analysis).

What future developments can you anticipate now, how can you prepare for them and how can you even predict them?

This module is specifically designed to help you be more EFFICIENT and COMPETITIVE IN THE LONG TERM.


Event 4 – Managing People

What motivates you and what motivates other people in your business?

If we can truly understand each other’s motivators we can begin to create a Highly Performing Team.

And what about de-motivators?

If we can eradicate/reduce de-motivating factors within the laboratory it leads to a far more pleasant working environment. This process begins with a robust recruitment policy, how do you find technicians, how should you decide who to employ and how can you ensure you comply with the law?

This module is specifically designed to help you have A HIGHLY PERFORMING AND MOTIVATED TEAM.


Event 5 – Customers & Marketing

Your business will always do better if your customers are looked after, cared for and get what they want. If you balance this with your own needs it’s a truly win/win situation and the business flourishes, so:

  • What is your unique selling proposition (USP?)
  • Why should dentists buy from you and not the cheap lap down the road?
  • What are the key factors which contribute to competitiveness and how can you remain as competitive as possible (Porters Five Forces Analysis)?
  • Why do dentists and your customers do the things they do, what motivates them to think in certain ways and how can we learn to adapt and work with them? (Customer Behaviour Analysis)
  • How can you set up a robust and effective marketing strategy that works 24 hours per day 7 days a week without sleeping?

This module is specifically designed to help you to BE MORE COMPETITIVE


Event 6 – Personal development

Why are you doing all this?

What are your personal motivators?

Why do so many of us self sabotage our careers and life and how can we stop it?

What is your utlimate goal in life, how does your career fit in to this and how can you make it happen with the least amount of work, energy and effort

What do all of these people have in common?
Oprah Winfrey
Leonardo DiCaprio
Metallica
Bill Clinton
Serena Williams
Andre Agassi
Hugh Jackman
Chuck Liddell (MMA fighter)

All of these people have attributed their success, at least in part to working with a life coach. When we understand our own thought processes, the strategies we used to make decisions and the reasons we have negative beliefs about ourselves we can make definite decisions to change for the better, not only for ourselves but the people around us.

This module is specifically designed to help you to BE WHAT YOU WANT TO BE, DO WHAT YOU WANT TO DO and HAVE WHAT YOU WANT TO HAVE in work and life.
