Good Showing in the Big Easy

A few weeks back, the principals at MT Consulting (Steve Mountain & Tony Lynch) presented at one of the premier events for physical therapy business owners.  The event, 2013 Private Practice Section Conference & Expo, was held in New Orleans and featured keynotes, educational sessions as well as a party in the SuperDome.

While thrilled with the opportunity to address this sharp group of professionals, there was a question if the MT topic would resonate with attendees.  That concern was allayed when attendees trickled... then streamed into the session room with many forced to stand through the presentation. 

Yes, Steve and Tony --- your topic, Valuing Your Business…What's Really Important? hit a chord among many in this time of healthcare changes and transition.  The energy was high and the questions flowed as the MT team outlined key factors to monitor in a PT practice…whether owners were preparing for a sale or looking to benchmark practice performance.  It was a good show and good showing...

Did you miss Steve and Tony's talkConference presentations were recorded and available on the PPS website.
