'Success in Practice'

RCHM CONFERENCE 2020

20th & 21st June 2020

Pax Lodge, Hampstead, London

Find the Success You are Looking For

This year's conference has the theme of 'Success in Practice'. From beginning to end, there will be opportunities to enhance not only your clinical skills and outcomes but also this year, the business side of your practice. Whether you are a new or student practitioner, a practitioner who has not come to a conference in a while and wants to reconnect or a seasoned stalwart of the community, you will find this conference very welcoming and enriching! Working in the private sector as we do, to achieve success we not only have to know our herbs, we also have to run a business! This presents a continual challenge to generate new patients, keep the ones we have and then keep everything afloat without being overwhelmed. The first session of the weekend will be an interactive session where you will get to see how other practitioners do it, ask them questions and chat with your fellow members to share your own challenges and tips for success. You will also have the opportunity, should  you so wish, to take what you have gained from the conference and be supported to implement it into the future. The more we can work together and help each other to achieve success and abundance, the more our community thrives as a whole! But this is only the start! On the Saturday afternoon, our very popular and well-received speaker, Simon Becker, will be returning to give a talk on treating common paediatric disorders with Chinese herbal medicine. Naava Carman will be speaking on the connection between Lichen Sclerosus and autoimmune infertility . Our new CEO Conny Cooper will be giving an interactive talk on how tasting herbs can lead to better clinical outcomes with case examples. Finally, Andrew Sterman will be beaming in from New York to give us a live streamed talk on how to take your Chinese dietary therapy knowledge to the next level. On the Sunday, Simon Becker will be giving a full day lecture revealing the secrets to success in treating blood stasis. Simon is the author of 'The Treatment of Cardiovascular Diseases with Chinese Medicine' and 'A Handbook of Chinese Hematology'. He also has a wide clinical experience of treating a range of diseases in his clinic based within a hospital in Switzerland. This full day seminar is not to be missed!

Annual General Meeting and Group Sharing Session

We will be holding the AGM and Group Sharing Session on the afternoon of Friday 19th June.

Social Evening

This year, the social evening meal is on the Saturday evening. As this is a residential conference, we hope that many of us can join in and make it one to remember! You can sign up for the meal in the booking process.

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING & GROUP SHARING SESSION

https://conference.rchm.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/IMG_20191013_123541-300x200.jpg
The AGM this year will be held on the Friday afternoon before the conference (Friday 19th June 1pm-5pm). However, we have heard you that it can be difficult to take off an extra day for the AGM when it is put before the conference, so for the first time we will be creating a live web link where you will be able to attend the AGM remotely if you cannot make it in person. The president and council will all be present with updates on activities in the last year and plans for the future. You will have the opportunity to make your voice heard to the council and to your fellow members. Finally, voting will take place to elect the council and president for the coming year. We will also hold a Group Sharing Session where you will get the opportunity to learn from and share ideas and tips with fellow members. A great opportunity to make new friends in the membership. There will also be a presentation by Lorraine Hodgkinson on Total Anti-Oxidant Capacity testing and how it can be a useful tool for our community. If you would like to attend, either by web link or in person please, go to the booking form by clicking 'Book a Ticket' below and signing up. As always attendance at the AGM is free for members.

Join your fellow herbalists for dinner at the conference venue - Pax Lodge, 12c Lyndhurst Road, London NW3 5PQ. The conference is more than taking part in interesting workshops, its also about coming together, making new friends and reuniting with old ones. Back by popular demand we have asked our favourite Lebanese restaurant, David's Deli, to cater for us. You will have a choice of Chicken or Lamb Shawarma or Vegetarian  Moussaka. Most of the food on offer will be vegan and gluten free.

We have been informed that June is one of the busiest time of the year, rooms are selling fast. If you would like to book, please give them a call on 02074352202  or book direct from the website: https://www.thebookingbutton.co.uk/properties/paxlodgedirect Pax Lodge, 12c Lyndhurst Road, London NW3 5PQ If the onsite accomodation is sold out, there are many other options from local hotels. The venue is in a very well connected part of London near both Belsize Park and Hampstead stations on the Northern Line and Hampstead Heath Overground Station. If you are having trouble finding accomodation you can drop me an email at alex@daomedicine.com and I can give you more information about the local area.

VIDEO RECORDINGS & REMOTE ATTENDANCE

https://conference.rchm.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2015/11/camera-662129_960_720-300x200.jpg
All attendees of the Saturday lecture day will be emailed links to videos of all of the Saturday afternoon lectures after the conference. You will be able to watch these videos for 6 months after the conference so you won't miss out and will be able to see every lecture and speaker. This does not apply to the Business session or the  Sunday lecture. The videos will consist of lecturer audio, audience questions and the powerpoints used by the presenter. The lecturers will not be filmed.
We will be selling a 'Remote Attendance' ticket for RCHM members only. Many of our members find it difficult to make the conference due to distance or other unavoidable commitments. For the price of £50 you will be able to purchase access to the videos of the 4 Saturday afternoon lectures. These will be made available once they have been edited after the conference. However, we do encourage members to physically attend if they can because we feel that coming together as a community, meeting new and old friends alike and allowing other members to benefit from your presence is equally, if not more important than the lecture content.
