Doug on the Value of Davie Seminars

John has changed my mind set towards marketing. He has taken me through, step by step, the stages and processes to, not only, transform my business but the way I view my business. The solutions and process he puts in place are drawn from knowledge he has obtained from around the world, meaning market leading opportunities for your business. The wonderful thing is he has changed my business working through regular Skype meetings, and after each meeting I am refreshed and driven ready to develop my business further.

Paul Goss, Director Body Logic Health

I started working with John Davie in mid-2012.
At that stage I was the sole physiotherapist, part-time and a part-time receptionist. The practice had slowly grown over 10 years and was at a point where, to see patients in a timely manner, I would have to have increased my contact hours or expand.

I now have a practice that provides a 9.5 days per week service over 4 locations employing 4 part-time physiotherapists.

John has made it all happen with his enthusiasm and inspiration to give me confidence to move forward and a marketing plan that has led to expansion from 3.5 to 5.5 to 9.5 day service in 2 years and from 1 to 3 to 4 locations.

This plan has led to increased new referrals across all locations (2015 compared to the same period in 2014 has increased 16%). Many new refers have come on board from existing practices who have regularly referred and new practices. With each wave of marketing there are additions to the referral base. This obviously has financial implications.

Pam Reynolds, On-Balance Physiotherapy, www.onbalancephysio.com.au

We have been working with John for 6 months now and his dedication and passion to his work is inspiring. John has a good understanding of physiotherapy from both the clinical and business perspective. It is through this that he has insight into the issues which inhibit practice growth. From the initial analysis through to the meetings and extra ideas and work on the business, it is great to see the professional and friendly approach that John delivers and also the enthusiasm this generates within, inspiring you to work harder toward your goals.

John is certainly a top rate business coach who understands the business of physiotherapy and how to improve that business. Physiotherapy is not like other businesses and it is refreshing to have someone with that insight to be able to understand the nuances of running a physiotherapy practice and more importantly business.


I have found working with John very beneficial for the growth of my business.
The initial full diagnostic was an excellent snapshot of where the business was at and allowed an inidividualised plan of attack to improve on areas of weakness and areas of untapped growth potential. Having an objective 3rd party analyse the business has been invaluable. The diagnostic recommendations we quite objective and easy to systematically follow through.

With John’s guidance this has allowed me to more than double my turnover in just over 2 years.

Matthew Gray, Principal and Owner Active Life Physiotherapy

John Davie has spoken on a few occasions now at various events run by The Australian Physiotherapy Association. Primarily, he has been asked to speak at conferences and lectures targeted towards private practitioners interested in understanding the business of physiotherapy and health.

In 2011, I asked John to speak again to NSW private practitioners about what it takes for physiotherapy businesses to grow and be competitive in the health sector.I have now heard John speak publicly on numerous occasions to small and big crowds.

John is a wonderful speaker with presence. Apart from his wealth of knowledge in business and having been a successful elite athlete and coach, it is his ability to engage with the audience that makes him a great speaker. Many participants and conference delegates have been motivated to change after hearing John speak. He is truly inspirational.

Errol Lim, Managing Director BJC Health, NSW PBA Committee Member

I attended John’s ‘Better Business Building’ two-day workshop in Sydney (July 2011) and I have to say that I was blown away by his down to earth, common sense approach; his ability to go right to the core, removing all the jargon and fluff (quickly).  The fact that John has a proven track record, that he has ‘walked his talk’, provides credibility lacking in other ‘wannabes’. Throw in his frankness, honesty and passion and John is a powerful and credible presenter.

It is my opinion that anyone who wants to succeed in their business needs to hear John speak. Since, I have had, on several occasions, the privilege of presenting from the same stage as John. As a co-presenter, I was equally impressed. I unreservedly recommend John Davie not only because he is undeniably a credible authority on his subject, but also because of the manner in which he presents his unrivaled experience and knowledge.

Dean H Watson, International Educator, Mentor & Consultant; Director, The Headache Clinic & Watson Headache Institute

As the National Vice Chair of Physiotherapy Business Australia, a private practice owner and convener of the post the past three annual pre-conference PBA workshops, I have no hesitation in recommending John Davie for any lecturing engagement.

John is an engaging speaker and relates well to the audience, regardless of their business experience. He researches his topic well and manages to make each talk different and interesting. He keeps the audience totally focussed on his talk which provides valuable information for practice owners as well as those working as employees in private physiotherapy practice.

His history as a physiotherapist for elite athletes certainly adds to hiscredibility when he uses this experience to highlight the similarities in this aspect of our profession and running a business.

Anna Lee, Principal, Work Ready, Physiotherapist and Occupational Health Consultant

Over the years we have spent thousands of dollars engaging marketing and strategy consultants for advice and direction. All had something to offer, but none had a physiotherapy background. After working with John Davie for 6 months he has won our confidence. Not only has John walked the walk with a very successful physiotherapy practice, he has a rare gift for pursuing excellence.

After six months of working with John, we are excited about our direction and have confidence in the strategy we have adopted. Change can be daunting… What if we get it wrong? John has been a credible sounding board to discuss ideas and directions for our business, in fact his input has been invaluable in the following areas:

  • Commercial
  • Marketing
  • Clinical
  • Building/Facilities
  • Staffing

Dianne Hermans, Principal Physiotherapist, Lifestyle Therapies, Brisbane

I wish we had of found John earlier. We could have saved a lot of time and I suspect not only have saved a lot of money, but made it too. In fact looking back on it, I could safely say that some of the previous marketing consultants we have engaged seem like amateurs compared to John. After trialling 2 previous business coaches I settled on using John. He is unique in that he has already done what I am trying to achieve, making him an invaluable part of my business.

John is passionate about business and about Physiotherapy. He is an outstanding coach and has provided some valuable insights which has already seen my practice numbers grow by 20% in the 3 months we have been working together.

John’s experience as an elite sportsman, high performance coach and Physiotherapy business owner gives him a rare combination of skills which have proved invaluable.

I could highly recommend John Davie as a business coach or consultant for a physiotherapy practice.

Cameron Bulluss, Physiotherapy Practice Owner, Newcastle

I have worked with John Davie, to improve the productivity of my physiotherapy clinic in Cairns, for 8 months now. I am involved in a 12 month programme. John’s energy and enthusiasm are endless. He has shared so much information and so many ideas with me, to help me grow my business and improve the service I supply to an elite standard. I have learnt more than I have from any other similar service. My clinic is already reaping the rewards of John’s input. But be prepared to work at it! The only limitations of having perfect results, are the time and effort, put in on my part to apply everything he has to offer. This is a been a wonderful learning experience and I’m sure I will continue to use John’s services, beyond the contracted time.

Julie Faulks, Physiotherapy Practice Owner, Cairns

From the first meeting with John Davie on a Professional basis, I was impressed with his positive attitudes, sound marketing and business knowledge and his great friendly attitude. Johns has behind him great skill as a Physiotherapist with many elite teams in NZ and his built thriving Physiotherapy practices (employing up to 15 Physiotherapists) in the South Island.

It was with excitement that I first met John in person and found he had moved to Sunny Sydney and had commenced a Business mentoring service in conjunction with PPS, an internationally known Company. John has now worked with myself in mentoring the expansion of Bounce back Active Rehabilitation Systems and my Business partner Suzie Williams in Mentoring the expansion of “Take Control” Active Rehab Practice on Oatley.

John’s enthusiasm, experience and amazing ability to developed Marketing, management and point of difference strategies, I believe are second to none. Johns hands on approach in helping Principals develop positive strategies to overcome Practice problems is certainly very reassuring. I have developed a great respect for his skill and depth of knowledge on how Physiotherapy Practices work and how to make practitioners think outside the circle to improve their bottom line in their businesses.

Particularly when it comes to Marketing ideas, creating business growth or developing a point of difference to make your Practice set apart form the competition, I can highly recommend John Davie and PPS.
