    For counselors, social workers, psychologists

    REGISTRATION OPEN NOW!

    Presenter:
    Norm Dasenbrook

    Enjoy this new, 2 day format on
    opening and expanding your own Private Practice!
    with the newly added benefit of a 25 minute follow up
    private consultation with the presenter.

    Friday, May 31, 2019   9 A.M. - 3 P.M.
    Saturday, June 1, 2019  9 A.M. - 3 P.M.

    This two day private practice workshop is designed for the clinician who is planning to start a practice within the next year or those who have started a small practice and wish to expand. Given the two day format, participants will be able to explore more in depth the essential components of startup, business entities, money management, billing, office procedures, social media, public speaking, advertising and marketing that each participant needs to develop a plan to start or expand a practice with actionable steps with proven techniques. Get all your questions answered. Do it right the first time. Most small businesses fail in the first year. Don’t let that be you.

    This workshop is the only 2 day workshop available in the Midwest that will function as a group consultation. Most practice consultants charge $175.00 or more per hour.  For far less than the cost of two hours of consulting you get ten hours of consulting tailored to you and your practice! Seating will be limited.

    PLUS

    Included in the registration fee is a post-workshop private consultation with the presenter and practice consultant Norm Dasenbrook. Workshop attendees will be able to schedule a private 25 minute practice consultation to answer questions and implement practice building strategies learned in the workshop. 

    The consultation will occur by phone. Participants can email questions or areas of discussion prior to their scheduled consultation time.  Participants may schedule a time when attending the workshop or later by phone up to one year post workshop date.
