Using Demographics to Locate your Next Clinic

This year’s Keynote is a fascinating insight for business leaders of all types into how to deploy demographics and psychographics to accelerate growth.

Owner of Doctor Demographics, the largest provider of marketing analysis to healthcare practices, Scott's pioneering work in demographic research has become the industry standard today.  For over 30 years he and his team have helped thousands of businesses select the perfect place to acquire or build their next clinic.

Scott is a writer, lecturer and facilitator, but above all, the consummate communicator, with an MA in Mass Communications. His session will guide delegates to the meaning behind the numbers along with an understanding of the role of psychographic segmentation – the traits that influence consumption habits – and, its application to business strategy.
