Why Vivian?


WHAT makes her services and programs unique?

  • The combination of being both a pharmacist and professional speaker allows her to maximize the learning experience for a pharmacy audience.

  • The CONTENT is relevant, with understanding of the big picture of health care as well as the specific issues facing the profession of pharmacy.

  • The DELIVERY is effective because of excellent presentation and facilitation skills, interactive techniques, handouts that supplement the learning, and good use of A/V support.

  • The RESULT is motivation, with stimulation to put new learning into action. The success of any program truly lies with the implementation that follows the end of the meeting. Knowledge without implementation has little value.
