Sherman’s Leadership and Practice Management Institute (LPMI) presents its next monthly Success Colloquium on Thursday, September 7, featuring sessions on practice management, personal development and leadership, with Mike Switzer, James Tomasi and Gerard W. Clum D.C. The program is held from 6-9 p.m. on campus. Cost is $35 for D.C.s and $10 for faculty/staff/students and includes dinner.

Mike Switzer will present “Working the Financial Plan; Do You Have One?” Switzer is host and part-time producer of the South Carolina Business Review, which airs weekday mornings on the South Carolina Educational Radio Network. In 2000, the U.S. Business Administration named Switzer South Carolina Small Business Journalist of the Year and Southeast Region Small Business Journalist of the Year. He will share strategies and techniques to more effectively and responsibly manage your money, leading to financial freedom and success.

James Tomasi will present “Right Place, Right Time: Press On.” Tomasi, an entrepreneur and retired pastor, dedicates himself to promoting the message of specific chiropractic to the masses at grassroots levels. He travels the world speaking about specific chiropractic care and how the power within the body can heal itself when it is in balance. He encourages chiropractors to believe that they have been called into life-saving work.

Gerard W. Clum, D.C., will present “Leadership in the 21st Century.” Clum, a 1973 graduate of Palmer College, has served as president of Life Chiropractic College West since 1981. He also serves as president of the World Federation of Chiropractic. He has lectured on chiropractic and chiropractic-related matters in Africa, Australia, Asia, North America and South America. He will discuss why the societal and professional changes of the recent past call for new approaches to leadership, new expectations for leaders and new expectations of strategies associated with leadership.

The Success Colloquium is designed to engage regional chiropractors in perfecting the knowledge and skills of practice management. Through these personal development monthly meetings, participants will advance their leadership and practice management abilities. These sessions are specifically designed to give participants great effectiveness in growing and maintaining successful practices.
