ICOAMS / RIO 2019

DRESS: MAXMARA – NORDSTROMS / SHOES: FRANCO POLLINI BUENOS AIRES

After tasting several vineyards and eating an entire herd of beef, I was off to Rio to get some actual work done. This year I addressed a group to international medical professionals. It’s my FAVORITE topic … Marketing & PR for Explosive Growth.

It’s such an honor to interact with these brilliant professionals. It’s fun to see how different parts of the World utilize today’s media. And, to witness just how far the concept of “designing a work life you love” has come worldwide.

FIRST, FUEL FOR THE SPEAKER …

I don’t know how many of you are familiar with the ICOMS entity. Here are a couple of fast facts:

Founded in London in 1962

It’s the Organization of National Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons

It’s now represented by more than 50 countries. It is THE leading global association of OMS. Their opening ceremony looks like the Olympic village coming in….all in traditional dress.

ICOMS was held in Rio in 2019 and will be in Glasgow in 2021 (thinking golf at St Andrews as I type!)

The bottom line is my Master Class was full of professionals familiar with varying levels of expertise / knowledge regarding the growth and promotion of their practices. So much fun to hear their questions and learn how they run their businesses. I am always thrilled by the growing number of women in this group! Not so long ago it was almost all male. In January, the FIRST woman will take her place as President of the organization. You’ve got this Gabby! Look for a podcast interview with her in the near future.

I cannot wait for the next work life chapter!
