RECENTLY more than fifty participants gathered in the picturesque Hunter Valley to take part in the 2011 conference of the Pharmacy Catalyst buying group. Held over two-and-a-half days at the exclusive Peppers Guest House resort, the conference, themed, ‘Excellence in Execution’, included expert presentations, workshops and networking – not to mention the odd glass or two of wine. “I thoroughly enjoyed the conference, met a lot of like minded people and found myself automatically applying some of the strategies for improvement to our pharmacies,” said conference attendee, pharmacist Tim Spargo from Coral Coast Pharmacies. The group is pictured above rugged up outside the resort.
