As you are unique, a bespoke approach to each practice is required to identify it’s full potential. Laura’s aim is to help you unlock this potential. When seeking finance, approaching a bank in the right way is crucial to obtain the structure and type of funding best suited to your needs.
As practitioners you are amazing clinicians, but most have never had any formal business training about how to run a business, what to look for, what are your legal requirements and ensure that you are making money, as well as understanding what other responsibilities you have!
After visiting numerous great practices and some needing more of a helping hand, Laura can share her experiences of what works and what most certainly doesn’t and steer practitioners away from making those mistakes.
Whilst Laura is based in Hertfordshire, she works with practitioners across the UK.
