Real Doctors. Real Problems. Real Solutions.


Take a step back from your environment and immediate issues to join us and other like minded owners.

Morning sessions will be keynote speakers covering an array of relevant topics. One of the more popular speakers will be the CEO of Silkin Management and you don’t want to miss this. Afternoon sessions are presented by several of our successful clients, your peers. In addition, other solutions present themselves at the conference because of the numerous opportunities at this event to confer with other doctors and together find solutions.

Discussions are lively, but the experience and know-how is all about business. You will hear new ideas and will get inspiration from different viewpoints. This unique event has limited seating because we’ve found that close, informal discussions with peers and keynote speakers can be, by themselves, of the greatest value. This event has been life-changing for many owners because they feel they got gains beyond your expectation.

We look forward to hearing from you very soon because seating is limited.

A unique conference held at beautiful venues in the Pacific Northwest. The Keynote speaker is Fred King, the CEO of Silkin Management Group. He is the owner of a small business speaking to you, an owner of your business.

Fred is joined by several industry speakers, some of which are nationally known. These speakers cover topics such as finances, public relations, marketing, and practice transition.

In addition to one of the most popular part of this conference is having our successful clients as speakers and roundtable moderators.

We think this is one of the best services we have to deliver to our clients. But don’t listen to us, listen to your peers…
