065 - Greg Lawrence The Benefits of Giving Back

Most podiatrists, when they reach a certain point in their career, want to volunteer or give back to the profession in some way. Some focus their attention locally, while others like the idea of helping overseas. 

On this episode, I talk with Greg Lawrence, the owner of Georgetown Foot Clinic in Ontario, Canada and Board Member of the Ontario Society of Chiropodists about this and a lot more. 

  • Our conversation begins by discussing the use of the words Chiropody and Podiatry in Ontario. 
  • Greg's involvement on the Organising Committee for the upcoming annual conference April 30 - May 2 
  • Volunteering in Belize (Central America) and working with the local diabetes association. 

I also want to give a personal shout out to Superior Medical for helping Greg with supplies and providing instruments for his humanitarian trip. 

  • As a business owner, what were his most significant challenges
  • Best business tip - pick a colour and use it everywhere, and eventually when people see that colour, including referrers they will immediately relate it to you. Great Tip!!!
  • Thoughts around social media
  • Connecting with other podiatrists around the world. 
  • The importance of giving back to the podiatry profession
