From the Managing Director

Trevor Martin

I read recently that time falls out of time as we age. It is already the end of 2014 and I pictured myself with flailing arms and legs and unkempt hair trying to catch a piece of time to do one more thing and to grow old more slowly and with more grace!

 For many, the summer break is a time to reflect and some take a few days to work on their business rather than in their business. In 2015, GDP and population growth will be less than in 2014 and we are operating in a market with more competitors for the patients’ discretionary dollars. We have a choice in 2015, we can wonder where we are going or we can have a plan.

 As the cat said to Alice, where are you going? Alice: Which way should I go? Cat: That depends on where you are going. Alice: I don’t know. Cat: Then it doesn't matter which way you go.

 To be successful in 2015 each of us need to be clear on where we want to go. We need to have a well thought through plan to get there that is implemented better than any of our competitors. So if plans exist it is a great time to think about whether we have learnt anything in 2014 that requires our plan to be modified, and what behaviours we need to work on, e.g. persistence, listening, being accountable that will enable us implement our plan better than our competitors. If plans do not exist there is no time like the present to get started.

 I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all of our customers in 2014 for your business and for the feedback you have given on how we can be better at doing what we do to help your business be more successful and for you to provide the best possible care to your patients. We value your business greatly and look forward to working with you in 2015.

 From all the Gunz Dental team, our best wishes to you, your families and your friends for peace and happiness and a very prosperous 2015!
