Practice Managers’ Annual Conference

Perth 29 – 31 October 2017

Welcome from the Practice Managers’ Committee

It is a great pleasure and honour to extend a warm welcome to all our delegates and their accompanying guest to visit the vibrant city of Perth, Australia for the Practice Managers’ Annual Conference held from Sunday 29-31 October 2017 at the Perth Conference and Exhibition Centre.

We look forward to welcoming practice managers and allied professionals from across Australia, New Zealand and beyond. We hope this exciting conference can be the platform for all participants to discover novel opportunities, reacquaint with colleagues, meet new friends, share experiences and enhance their expertise. We are also grateful to all the speakers, sponsors and delegates for their participation that makes this conference possible.

The conference continues to evolve and improve with input from our attendees, making an already great conference even more spectacular. We thank our attendees for their input and ask that they continue providing their valuable insights to ensure we develop relevant and thought provoking program.

The Committee is working hard to build an exciting program that promises to be highly rewarding on a social basis as well as on an intellectual basis. We aim to assemble a mix of speakers who will shed light on innovative research topics and issues that shape our field today, with an emphasis on sharing ideas and experiences that are applicable to practice management. We hope to once again, invite a number of RANZCO Fellows to present on a range of topics from a doctor’s perspective.

As done in previous years, we hope to organise some sponsored networking drinks and dinner in the evening after the program – more details to come.

Finally, we hope you will enjoy the conference and that your interaction here will be an enlightening, informative and enriching experience. We are also hope you will be able to take a little extra time to discover, explore and enjoy the spectacular and unique beauty of Perth.

Kind regards
