Welcome to the sPEAKing Pharmacy Podcast, hosted by our Director John Thornett.

This podcast is dedicated to helping pharmacists evolve into owners.

Transitioning from a pharmacist to a pharmacy owner can be a quite timely and overwhelming experience. Our aim is to provide pharmacists with some guidance for this exciting process. John will provide insights from his own experience dealing with pharmacies for over twenty years as well as interviews with other industry professionals who will also share their perspective.

The podcast will be released fortnightly and is a great resource to utilise alongside our Peak Strategies Blog.
