Incredible program! Jon is an amazing engaging speaker. Jill was an incredible speaker.

Cynthia Kirwan – Practice Manager – Sadrian Plastic Surgery – La Jolla, California

I have attended 4 years in a row & am already signed up for my 5th. You cannot fully understand the process w/o personally attending and you will not get this level of sales training anywhere else (unless you hire them and even then, you should still attend”). You have nothing to lose. Do it.

Erin Andrews – PCC – Dr. Eliopoulos – Chelmsford, Mass.

It will change your practice dramatically.

Matt Lewis, MD – Portland, Oregon

Absolutely and unequivocally the best information money can buy to powerfully impact your practice.

Darice W. – Dr. Sukkar – Houston, Texas

Excellent location! Wonderful Speakers! Supportive team that was able to accommodate our specific needs.

Juan Batlle, MD – Plastic Surgeon – Dominican Republic

Even working w/YT for 5 years, the conference is always filled w/good reminders and ways to take it to the next level. Getting untrained staff here so the whole team is on the same page would be helpful [for other practices].

Crystal – Practice Administrator – Dr. Richard Westreich – New York City

You can’t go wrong with a money back guarantee. Just go. You won’t regret it.

Sonya Merriman, MD – Valdosta, Georgia

5 Stars! YT put on the most luxurious and informative seminar I’ve ever been to. Can’t wait to be back in 2020.

As with everything you guys do, the quality of this seminar was top notch. Great refresher with so many new takeaways. And the food was ridiculous. You can be guaranteed you’ll come away from this seminar taking away some invaluable information…it’s the most worthwhile conference of the year for us.

It’s always a 5 Star experience. My absolute favorite was the mindful Advanced Break out. It’s not easy, but neither is your job if you’re getting unqualified pts. Putting in the work and effort will pay off with immediate results.

Courtney Swick – Kaniff Plastic Surgery – Sacramento, California

As a doctor, I know have a better understanding of the 7 Steps, 3 Gs. I have a few recommendations to implement when I return.

It was a good refresher course on the YT Sales. I really enjoyed the social media break out session. It’s a very specific formula for best sales practices. You really need to be dedicated to changing to this system.

Content was relevant and explained in a way that was easy to follow and understand. Speakers held my attention. Subject matter is realistic and not so out there that it would be impossibe to implement. YT has proven, effective processes in place to improve productivity in revenue. The seminar gives you ALL the tools needed to raise your practice productivity exponentially. Worh every penny if your team is willing to listen and implement.

Dr. Sonya Merriman – Plastic Surgeon – Georgia

Very helpful information…Give it a chance. Only one way to find out.
