18th Annual Summit Opening Session

The Top Practices Summit opens with an information-packed, high-energy session led by Top Practices Founder and CEO, Rem Jackson, and the most successful Top Practices doctors. Your chosen profession is a key to achieving prosperity, which is something much greater than success. Operating a podiatry practice (or any small business) is not for the faint of heart. There are great challenges facing everyone (not just podiatrists). In fact, the failure rate is staggering for small business startups in the first five years. Podiatry practices typically don’t fail at anywhere near this rate, but thriving is a very different situation than surviving and struggling day-to-day. Why then, do a small few of us seem to thrive and love our work while most of us just can’t break the cycle and are left with too much work, too little time, too much stress, and burnout?

There are answers. There are strategies, tools, and tactics that will forever allow you to build an incredible team and reclaim your personal life while earning significantly more money.Rem Jackson

In this opening session, Rem and Top Practices doctors who have “cracked the code” share how you can accomplish all of this. It all starts here. You CAN do this.

Be sure your travel plans make it possible for you to be in your seat and ready when the conference opens at 5:30 PM. This is one of the most anticipated sessions at the Summit and will set the pace for your next 12 months.


Saturday Session

9:00 AM - 10:00 AM


Dan BuettnerWe are all starting to understand how the breakthroughs in AI are changing our lives in small yet significant ways. There is hype, of course, about AI and some downright misinformation, but it IS TRUE that all of us will be using AI in many aspects of our lives and those of us who are proactive and willing to learn and adapt in business will have a competitive edge on those who aren't willing. How do you make sense of it all? How do you evaluate and implement what you need and not get distracted by all the rest.

Dave Frees is a highly successful Trusts and Estates Attorney in Pennsylvania and an adept early adopter of ideas and technologies (including AI). He returns to the Top Practices Summit for the third time (his second keynote) and shares how you and your team can use AI now and, in the future, to save time and money, increase your patient outcomes, and to augment everything you do in ways that can reduce the stress and calm the chaos. As disruptive as AI is and will be, podiatrists are extremely well positioned to use it to let them focus on their patients like never before while dramatically increasing the profitability of their business.

Sinek's quote on teamsDoctor, you will never become as successful as you can become with- out your team. Not even close. No one can do this alone. Your team wants (so desperately wants) to work in a place that allows them to truly serve others and grow personally. What comes to mind when you read Simon Sinek’s quote? On a scale of 1 to 10, where does your team fall? Are they a high-performing group of people who trust each other? When this workshop is over you will have the answers you need to be able to return home, and with your staff, build a team you can all rate at 10. A team – a group of people who trust each other. You and your staff are going to love this.

Top Practices Protocol/Scripting Workshop

How to Drastically Increase Your Profits Using Dispensing and Ancillaries

10:30–12:00 When you dispense products and offer cash services two things happen:

• Profits Increase
What you may never have really examined is how much they both increase and it will likely surprise you. Really surprise you. In this workshop we will examine the role dispensing and additional services (often cash pay) can play in generating significant increases in both outcomes and profits. Our expert panel will be sharing how they’ve accomplished this and teach strategies you can use to do the same.
