philippa_laugh.jpgWelcome to the Media Room for Dr. Philippa Kennealy

Philippa works with physicians who are struggling to generate business ideas, and overwhelmed with launching and running sound ventures, such as enhancements to existing practices, or new medical or non-medical businesses.

Philippa is a lively, engaging guest who can tell a wealth of stories from her own journey to successful business woman, as well as stories about successful physician entrepreneurs. In addition, she offers plenty of advice and tips for how to get started in business as a physician entrepreneur.

What makes Philippa an expert on physician entrepreneurship?

From her experiences as a physician with her own private practices in rural Zimbabwe and later in urban Santa Monica, to those of running a large community hospital, working in a dot-com start-up and now running her own successful entrepreneurial business, Philippa has earned her stripes.

She has coached aspiring and actual physician entrepreneurs to create and run meaningful businesses. From her "Conversations with Trailblazers" interview series with numerous thriving physician entrepreneurs, she has distilled gold nuggets of insights that have contributed to their successes, and that she can share with your audience.

If you'd need tips, stories or ideas on:

  • Current trends in healthcare in which physicians are becoming more entrepreneurial to offset their disappointing declining revenues
  • How to assist physicians who want to develop a great service or product idea
  • How to help physician who aspire to become more entrepreneurial
