Simon Bartold has worked with elite athletes for more than three decades.
He has been to four Olympic Games, lectured in 42 countries on footwear and clinical biomechanics, and worked extensively with Asics and Salomon, so it's not surprising that his membership group, Bartold Clinical is the go-to sports medicine educational platform for podiatrists and other health professionals.
“Online education sites are a dime a dozen these days, so, if you are about to spend some money, you want to make sure you get the very best!”
On this episode we discuss:
- The amount of hard work that goes into a membership group.
- Why Bartold Biomechanics evolved to Bartold Clinical.
- Delivering quality CPD.
- The importance of finding your niche.
- The frustrations with some research that cannot be applied in a clinical situation.
- Why the only way to know something is to ask the question.
Why the educational landscape has changed
Covid has taught us what you can now do with virtual education. This style of education is growing because you get more bang for your buck.
Conferences will be smaller and more specific, and people will attend because they are interested in the subject.
"At conferences, speakers should be mentors and should be interacting more with attendees after their presentations".
You have to be passionate. You need to have a vision if you want to start your own membership group and you’ve got to dedicate time and a lot of effort.
Simon was also on Episode 004: Developing A Career In Footwear & Biomechanics.
My Next Event - Podiatry Marketing: Success Leave Clues
This marketing workshop is like no other, and when you complete this 4-hour workshop you will have a definite competitive advantage over other podiatrists in your area because you will know what makes a podiatry business successful.
Every successful podiatry business leaves clues, and for the past thirty-plus years, I have been paying close attention and taking note of what successful podiatrists have been doing, and it has nothing to do with your podiatry knowledge.
