ASAPS CONFERENCE PRACTICE MANAGEMENT SPEAKERS IN DETAIL
OVERSEAS SPEAKERS AT ASAPS
Catherine Maley – Cosmetic Surgery Marketing Consultant USA
Catherine Maley, MBA has been a cosmetic practice growth business and marketing consultant since the year 2000. Catherine’s popular book, Your Aesthetic Practice/What Your Patients Are Saying has been studied by thousands of plastic surgeons and their staff all over the world. Catherine is an International speaker (including London, Australia and Saudi Arabia) and regular contributor to the top medical publications in the industry and has been interviewed by the New York Times, ABC News and Newsweek. She is also a podcaster and aesthetic consultant. Catherine and her team specialize in growing cosmetic revenues using creative patient attraction, conversion, follow up and retention strategies as well as staff training to turn team members into converting rock stars. Catherine will cover these 4 topics.
1. Positioning YOU as the Best Choice
You can attract a lot more prospective patients to you by strengthening your brand so you become the obvious choice. “Branding makes a memorable impression on prospective cosmetic patients and tells them what to expect from you.” We’ll review lots of strategies and examples of great branding that you can “swipe and deploy” to polish up your own brand.
2. How to Convert More Consultations
Have you ever measured your conversion rate. Every plastic surgery practice I consult with has staff issues because we are dealing with human beings full of emotions, beliefs and limitations. That’s why they need on-going training and accountability, so they not only learn the proven strategies to convert callers and consults, but it also becomes a habit for them. Coordinators are not born closers. They learn from others who have been there and done that. Discover what both the surgeon & coordinator can do together to get to a YES a lot more often.
3. Retention is the New Patient Attraction Strategy – How to get 10x the Value of each Patient
Training your staff on customer service so your patients have a great experience on the phone and during their visit. That’s how you create raving fans and unpaid sales ambassadors who grow your practice for you….for free. That’s where your leverage is. Learn how to bring in more revenues without spending more by leveraging the assets you already have. Increase each patient’s value 10X by encouraging them to return more often, refer more often, give you online reviews and share you on social media.
4. Top 10 Takeaways From Interviewing Surgeons on the ‘Beauty And The Biz’ Podcast
For my 100th Podcast Episode, I reviewed my podcast interviews with 27 Surgeons and came up with ten takeaways that stood out as factors that got these successful surgeons where they are today. I discovered they shared certain characteristics that help them through the struggles and challenges of growing a thriving cosmetic practice. I will review those during this presentation and you can see how you compare.
