Our speakers are extraordinarily generous in sharing their hard-won secrets, and that means you can be certain to accelerate your success and cut years off your learning curve. In fact, that’s one of the things our workshop attendees always make a point of telling us – how much they appreciate the friendliness and accessibility of the experts we have on hand. Our speakers aren’t folks who just stroll up to a podium, talk about medical tourism and things they've never personally experienced, and leave. They hang around. They answer questions. They tell you their stories. And they make you laugh. They make you think. They share their own experiences – including the mistakes, so you don’t make them. And they guarantee that this destination workshop and fam tour will be not just eye-opening and inspirational, but a lot of fun.
