Practice of the Year Winner 2019, as voted by OSA members at the conference, is Diamond Member Jim Bottomley, Bottomley Opticians. Jim is a third generation Bottomley and is making amazing strides since taking over the helm of the practice his grandfather started. Congratulations Jim on your well-deserved win. Jim’s prize includes a consulting day with me at his practice working with Jim and his team, as well as an award presentation ceremony in front of local media and €1000 towards a European trade fair trip.
And congratulations to all the Practice of the year finalists who went to great efforts and showcased the best of what they are doing in their practices and providing resources and examples of their marketing in the practice of the year manuals. If you were at the conference be sure to take the time to dissect these manuals because they are filled with gems you can use to improve your practice. All the practice of the year finalists win a place at the exclusive Advanced Academy weekend next April!
