With SO many quality presentations being offered this year at Therapy Expo (Birmingham NEC Nov22nd & 23rd 2023), there is a danger for us soft tissue therapists to get overloaded and realise on return to clinic that we don't actually have much from the two day conference to put into practice!

Andy Hosgood will be presentoing in the STA Therapy Update Theatre at 12.20pm on Day 1 of Therapy Expo: 'How To Elevate Your Client Experience To Ensure Success':
"In a challenging world of private practice, how you treat your clients is essential in creating a long standing, reputable and successful business. To achieve this consistency is key. In this presentation, Andy Hosgood, Co-Founder of Elevate Your Clinic, will explain his 10-step framework to elevate your client experience and how to implement it into your business to ensure your success."
