COVID has changed our daily lives. It has taken many things from us. In particular for Practice Owners it has taken the live events and this year there looks to be no RACGP Practice Owners Conference and no Business For Doctors (BFD) Conference. 

That means General Practice Owners have gone without education, community and networking for too long and all at a time when we have suffered many changes. This is not the time to be going it alone.

As fellow Practice Owners, we fully understand. And, luckily, we have experience in running large scale digital events for General Practice Owners that we have applied in the creation of the Successful General Practice Owner (SGPO) Digital Conference 2020.

Practice Owners have felt threats to their financial viability, concerns about the safety of their teams and communities, and many have felt overwhelmed. 

Yet this is only the beginning of the pandemic, and the risks for Practice Owners will continue unless we take decisive action.

We have set out to change that! AND we will deliver precisely what is needed by General Practice Owners right at this moment in this special event 

We have out together a fully Digital 2 day event covering the answers to all of the questions on your mind as an Owner.

A Digital Event means:

No travel. At the moment this is difficult and costly anyway so you can remove that from your concerns!

Great value. The event is around 10% of the cost of the same event in person AND there is no travel costs

Experts presenting with solutions geared to your needs on topics that you have chosen
