As tomorrow is the beginning of a new month (one that leads us from cosy dinners to last dash shopping and party season) I thought a quick reminder of your Practice business development goals might be useful.

We are, after all, already a month into Q4 and as such you should be more than 75% of the way to achieving the Practice annual turnover/profit goal for 2014.

But just in case this is not the case I thought a sample calendar might help us all to re-focus.

Notwithstanding my obsession with using new data harvesting techniques I essentially remain a little old-school so am going to suggest simply clicking here to download, scroll down to November and then press the print button for page 11.

A printed version is always easier to share with a team.

And sharing is what I would strongly recommend. Because then your team is given both the responsibility and authority to fill in the blanksadd in your Practice’s revenue target for November and, if it’s a relevant KPI for your Practice, November’s target for new patients.

You could also add any other KPIs that impact your Practice – before pinning it up on a wall that everyone sees.

And if you are short of things to add here’s some important November 2014 dates:

  • Saturday 1st November – All Saints Day
  • Sunday 2nd November – All Souls Day
  • Wednesday 5th November – Guy Fawkes/Bonfire Night
  • Sunday 9th November – Remembrance Sunday
  • Tuesday 11th November – Armistice Day/2 minute silence at 11am
  • Sunday 30th November – St Andrews Day

And though December demands a wholly different approach, before the festive period truly kicks in don’t forget to timetable planning to take part in the UK’s 2nd annual Small Business Saturday event on December 6th.

Small Business Saturday is a great opportunity to show the wonderful value your dental team and Practice brings to the local community.

Very best wishes for a very Happy Halloween.
