2019 PDS Super-Conference

2019 PDS Super-Conference

Orlando Florida, Feb 21-23.

Why Attend

Why Attend the PDS Super-Conference?

Independent pharmacy is tough. We all know this as the nature of the beast. Now, more than ever, there are additional factors impacting independent pharmacies that many perceive as a crippling blow to helping them thrive. This pessimism is rippling through the industry, and it is simply not true.

At the PDS Super-Conference, we introduce you to new ideas, concepts and approaches that will not only be the tangible solutions you need to leverage your pharmacy in this environment, but we help you execute them with your team. We’ll show you how to build more effective relationships with those around you, such as physicians, patients, and your team. These relationships will be vital in moving away from the dependence on the traditional dispensing model.

Look Beyond Just Filling Prescriptions.

In 2019 and beyond, pharmacies must focus on what is in your control in order to make the circumstances outside of your control a non-issue. We do this by concentrating on supplementing your toolbelt with non-traditional ways of thriving within your pharmacy so that you can more effectively care for your patients and grow your business.

Join us in Orlando, Florida for an immersive 3-days where you’ll get to interact with 2,000 of the smartest pharmacies in the nation and the best experts in business. This is the event that will change your pharmacy. It is exactly the right content at exactly the right time your pharmacy needs it the most.

Every year the country's most successful pharmacy owners return to the PDS Super-Conference for one reason:

The Content.

You'll walk out of PDS 2019 with notebooks full of actionable growth strategies that you can apply the second you get back to your pharmacy (maybe even while on the plane!). We won't be offended if you start implementing during the event. This year get past the obstacles to implementation, as you will learn effective and ethical influence techniques so you can get more "YES".

It's one thing to want to take your business to the next level. It's another to follow through and actually do it.

With keynote speakers Peyton Manning and Dr. Robert Cialdini, along with a curated group of communication experts from within and outside of the pharmacy industry, you will leave PDS 2019 with the skills to effectively influence and get the buy-in you have been searching for.

With 2,000+ attendees every year, you'll meet people who have been in your shoes, who have faced the same problems you have, and who have overcome the same obstacles.

You'll be among your people with entrepreneurs and pharmacists from every corner of the country. Plus, we'll help you break the ice (and break bread) with an opening night happy hours and networking.

Jim Hrncir

It is a must attend, unless you like being miserable. I do believe some people like being miserable.

Chris Williams

If you let it, this can be the best thing you have ever done for your business. 

Gary Bowman

Don't wait around any longer and expect opportunity and success to trip and fall into your lap -- get up, surround yourself with the best, and go find it.

Carey Vaughn

Every pharmacy owner is leaving money on the table and I believe the programs PDS has in place addresses that.

Amy Hibbitts

I would recommend attending. It was very insightful and forced me to look at the practice of pharmacy as well as how our pharmacy runs in a different way.

Crystal Toman

It is a no brainer.  My mistake is that I watched the free webinars for 5-6 years and didn't join sooner. The cost scared me off for years. I didn't think it could be worth it. I was wrong. PDS helps your financials tremendously, but it changes your culture and your quality of life even more. As pharmacists we all make a bunch of money no matter what.  It isn't about the money, it is about seeing the change in you, your staff, your patients and your family. Just do it. You will thank me later.
