I am writing today with Christmas and New Year wishes to you all. It has been a tumultuous year for me personally and professionally, a bit of a roller-coaster really. Many of you contacted me personally with support prayers and best wishes during our recent time of stress. I would like to thank you all for those kind thoughts.
It has been an interesting year for the world of audiology internationally, we all face differing pressures next year that will lead us all to re-address our businesses or practices, which ever way you look at it, in order to ensure our continual survival.
I hope that during the last year I have brought forward some concepts, strategies, processes and procedures that may contribute to your continued success. I know that I have learned a lot in the last year about the differing outlook and belief structures in place internationally.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the conversations and debates that I have spurred and been involved in during this time. It has shown me the diversity of thought that exists in our profession, we should respect that diversity, it is what makes us who we are. I don’t think that differing opinions are a problem, in fact I think they should be celebrated.
It is these differing opinions that allow us to open up our thought processes and indeed learn something new, or view something old from a new perspective. I look forward to continuing in the New Year with more ideas and conversations. To you and your Families from me and mine, this festive season, I wish that you receive exactly what you need.
With the greatest regard
